Présentation de l'éditeur

The Tough Guy Wisdom series is the ultimate collection of "Tough Guy" movie quotes and trivia. The movie lines you love, along with the settings, the actors/actresses in the scenes, movie trivia, and interesting facts about the actors who said them. For action movie buffs and tough guy film aficionados, the Tough Guy Wisdom series will "Make your day!"

"I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you."

Liam Neeson as Bryan Mills - Taken (2008, US release 2009)

Biographie de l'auteur

Alain Burrese is the author of Hard-Won Wisdom From The School Of Hard Knocks, eight instructional DVDs on martial arts and self-defense, a thriller titled Lost Conscience, and the Tough Guy Wisdom series. He is currently working on additional titles to the Tough Guy Wisdom series, another novel, additional instructional DVDs, and several other projects. Alain’s background includes serving as a paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne Division, a sniper instructor for the 2nd Infantry Division, living and training in Japan and South Korea where he earned a 4th degree black belt in the self-defense art of Hapkido, teaching, bodyguarding, speaking, mediating, practicing law, security, and various other positions throughout the years. He currently lives in Montana with his wife and daughter, and when not with them, he spends his time writing, teaching, speaking, and helping others resolve conflict. That, and of course, watching tough guy movies.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very entertaining 30 décembre 2011
Par L. A. Kane - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I read Hard-Won Wisdom from the School of Hard Knocks: How to Avoid a Fight and Things to Do When You Can't or Don't Want to a decade ago and really enjoyed it, but then the author seemed to have gotten out of the writing business. It's great to see that he's back. Like many folks, Burrese grew up watching tough guy movies, though I suspect they had a bit more influence on him than most. According to the intro, Rambo led him to join the US Army, where he became a paratrooper and sniper. After mustering out, Lethal Weapon inspired him to apply for the LAPD. And, Billy Jack influenced his choice of martial arts, Hapkido (of which he's got a wonderful set of DVDs, including the Lock On series (e.g., Lock On: Joint Locking Essentials Volume 1: Wrist Locks) incidentally. While Burrese may have taken movies a bit too far in his youth, we can benefit today. And that is where Tough Guy Wisdom comes in.

Each section begins with a famous tough guy movie quote, describes the setting in which it was uttered, and wraps with a short piece of trivia about the movie along with something about the actor. This book is the first in a series. In forthcoming editions there will be books dedicated to quotes from actors Clint Eastwood, Charles Bronson, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylveser Stallone, and Chuck Norris, so they aren't covered here, but you will find famous lines from Wesley Snipes, Liam Neeson, Bruce Willis, Tom Laughlin, Tom Selleck, Steven Seagal, Robert De Niro, Mel Gibson, Patrick Swayze, and many, many more...

My buddy Kris can quote every notable line from most any movie he's ever seen. I can't do that, but I do remember 'em when I hear 'em. This book is a lot like hanging out with Kris. It's extremely entertaining. And a quick, easy read. I actually found it nostalgic, but then again I'm a tough guy movie buff. If you are too, you're certain to enjoy it.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellently done. 16 mars 2013
Par Dan Hartman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
If you love action movies (and who doesn't),this is one of those books that you wished you'd written, but was glad somebody did. Alain Burrise compiled some of the best movie quotes in this 3 volume set, and his love of these films comes thru with every page. In addition to the quote itself, he sets up the scene in which the quote takes place.
The only regret I have is that we have to wait for future volumes which will center on the Duke, Charles Bronson, and others. Definitely a worthwhile addition.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great collection of quotes for the tough guy, or gal, in all of us... 4 mars 2013
Par KickinFamily - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Being a fan of tough guy films like the author, how could I not like this collection of quotes from various movies? It includes may of my favorites, including Sean Connery, Steven Seagal, Bruce Willis, and many others.

What could be more appropriate and quotable that some witty or smart-aleck quip when tensions are high? Who of us hasn't wished we had the gonads to make such a wise crack when it's both most and least appropriate? This book sates your inner rebel, the one that secretly wants to lay into someone who's being a pain, instead of taking the diplomatic high road. It contains so many quotes that come to mind when the situation is appropriate, even when it's not appropriate to quote out loud at that time.

I'm also encouraged the author is planning some collections containing only quotes for individual actors, such as John Wayne and Clint Eastwood.

This volume is pure gold, so much so that I purchased volumes II and III in Kindle format before I ever finished this one. Yeah, it's that much fun.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 "As far as I'm concerned, progress peaked with frozen pizza." Bruce Willis in "Die Harder" 21 mars 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Having grown up in the 1980s and 90s, I watched a fair share of tough guy movies- those action romps starring the likes of Van Damme, Bruce Willis, Steven Seagal, and Mel Gibson. As such, they were an infinite source of delight for myself and my friends, as we would digest the visual spectacle of explosions, car chases, and epic throw downs between giants of the silver screen. These were the days when you actually had to rewind the footage (on a VHS tape), if you wanted to relive a particularly potent sequence that tickled your fancy. But long after the movies had expired within our antiquated VCRs (those are ancient electronic devices that used to display movies, for those of you too young to remember), my friends and I would keep the story living on by dispensing choice quotes from our (rather questionable) role models.

My point is, if you're of a similar background, having grown up enjoying "tough guy" movies with your friends and family, then you will undoubtedly take great pleasure in reliving some of these fine moments. This collection of quotes offers a wide variety from the genre's biggest names- and more importantly, it offers context. Rather than just offering a bunch of disjointed one-liners, the author has instead provided a wonderfully comprehensive explanation of each quote- where it happened, in response to what, etc. This was a brilliant idea, because though I could remember most of the one-liners, many of them eluded me, until I read the corresponding context. Additionally, each quote is accompanied by two pieces of trivia- one for the movie in question, and one for the actor. This makes for some fantastic, fun, light reading.

I was also surprised by the variety of selected movies that was used in this collection. Though the majority fall within the 80s/90s realm, there are some older ones quoted as well, plus some more modern, weirder stuff, like "Snakes on a Plane" and "Shoot 'Em Up". And this is not just a book about action movies... there are multiple genres in here, including westerns ("Tombstone", among others), crime dramas ("The Untouchables", for instance), and comedies (like "Big Trouble in Little China"). Finally, there is a very handy index included at the end of the book, which contains a list of all movies and actors referenced in the book. The best part of this index? All the names within have links attached in the Kindle version, so you can jump to the desired location in the book with a press of your finger.

Highly recommended for any fan of "tough guy" movies- and all the wisdom their heroes delight in imparting.
