Product Description

Product Description

Words of love, life and death from Chiun, Master of Sinanju.

The premier assassin of this or any age, Chiun, reigning Master of Sinanju, offers you his wisdom and words to live by. Enjoy this glimpse into the mind of the world's greatest and funniest assassin, the creation of Warren Murphy and Richard Sapir.

Culled from several decades of the ever-popular Destroyer series, these are words to live (and die) by.

Sentenced to death for a crime he didn’t commit, ex-cop Remo Williams is rescued from the electric chair and recruited by a secret government organization as an assassin, targeting criminals who are beyond the law. Remo’s trainer is a curmudgeonly old Korean named Chiun, whose mastery of the terrifyingly powerful martial art of Sinanju makes him the deadliest man alive.

The winning combination of action, humor, and mysticism has made the Destroyer one of the best-selling series of all time. With more than 150 books and over 50 million copies sold worldwide, the Destroyer has been praised by the LA Times as “flights of hilarious satire,” and gave birth to the mythology of the brash young Westerner taught by an ancient, inscrutable master.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Master Returns!!! 15 Oct 2003
By doctorwholittle - Published on
Over the past 32 years, "THE DESTROYER" series has striven to maintain a highly satirical look at the world &, with very few exceptions, has done it & done it well. With the passing of co-creator Dick Sapir & other co-creator Warren Murphy's retirement from the series, erstwhile authors (Will Murray, Jim Mullaney, et al) have tried their hand at continuing on the legacy of Sinanju. To be fair, as excellent as Messrs Murray, Mullaney, & Co. were at crafting "Destroyer" stories, no one can do it as well as one of those who created that Universe in the first place.
Mr Murphy has decided, at least for now, to return to the world of Sinanju & the return is a triumphant one! If you're familiar with "The Destroyer", especially under Warren Murphy's guidance, you're in for a pleasant treat. If you're unfamiliar with "The Destroyer", saddle in & make certain NOT to drink / eat / inhale ANYTHING while reading, unless you don't mind messing up the pages of this excellent book when you spew forth from laughing.
On second thought, go ahead & spew. Just make certain to buy a second copy to keep pristine.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Master shares his wisdom 14 Oct 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Every Destroyer fan needs a copy of this book so whenever you wonder what the Master of Sinanju would say under any given circumstance you can look it up. This book collects many of the wondrous sayings uttered by the Master of Sinanju in The Destroyer series of books also available at For that matter, everyone, Destroyer fan or not, needs this book to help you get through those trying times. This is definitely "duck soup for the soul".

3.0 out of 5 stars More a collection of sayings than a book 16 July 2010
By Warchild - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It should be cheaper as its really just a single slogane or saying per page. Its entertaining enough but short. Would have been better to have been free as an advertisement to promote the Destroyer Series. As it is there's nothing original here. You could read the whole thing in 10 minutes in a bookstore and save all the money.
But I'm glad I read it.

Chiun , the emeritus reigning Master shares his thoughts and they are worth reading. The Destroyer series is back and Murphy is personally supervising a digital rebirth -nuff said.
