4.0 out of 5 stars Not a novel but fun for fans 19 Nov 2012
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
Well my Grandad is a huge fan of Reacher so this book has been on my radar for quite some time, especially when you get to sit back and enjoy the rules that have helped shape the character through his myriad of adventures. It's fun, it has a lot of useful tips and if you're a fan of the hard man image it's something that will hit the spot.

Throw into the equation a forward by Lee Child, some quirky additions like Man Toy's and all round it is something that is going to give a lot of fun to the recipient.

4.0 out of 5 stars Its not a novel, its a novel little book! 9 Nov 2012
By IOWBOY TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Ok, lets make this clear............ THIS BOOK IS NOT A JACK REACHER STORY!

I knew this before purchasing, I thought the product description made this quite clear, but there are a number of reviews that express disappointment because its not a story and have thus scored it accordingly.

I personally think that to compare this book to a Jack Reacher novel does it a disservice, it is not a novel and nor does it try to be one.

Ok, the basics first.

The edition I'm reviewing is a hardback, it measures 184mm by 132mm and it has 160 pages, the covers are nice and sturdy and the publication has a high quality binding.

The book is a mixture of words, pictures and photographs, all are in black and white.

The book has a foreword by the creator and author of the Jack Reacher stories, Lee Child, he is also listed as the copyright author of this book but it is more likely the work of a Val Hudson, listed as the books 'compiler'.

Following on from the foreword there a number of small 'chapters', these are:

1. Be Prepared
2. Breaking and Entering
3. Choose Your Weapons
4. The United States Army Military Police
5. The Rules of Coffee
6. Conquer Your Fear
7. Confronting Death
8. Cracking Codes and Passwords
9. Dogs
10. Fighting
11. Food
12. First Aid
13. Getting Mad
14. Hand-to-Hand Combat
15. How to Shake Hands
16. The Wimbledon Cup
17. Hitchhiking - The rules
18. How to Extract Information
19. Know How to Find Your Way Around a City
20. West Point
21. Keep on the Move
22. Codes Used by the Military Police
23. Lessons Learned in the Military
24. Live off the Grid
25. Hogan's Alley
26.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Christmas present for Jack Reacher fans 12 Nov 2012
Format:Hardcover
Do Jack Reacher fans not actually READ?? Evidently not from some of these reviews!! It is quite clear that this isn't a new novel - it's a gift book - and it is smart, entertaining and a perfect socking filler present for all of us who are die-hard Jack fans. I have read every single Reacher novel and I think this is a perfect present for people like me!

3.0 out of 5 stars Unusual Reacher 6 Dec 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Makes a change to read something with Reacher himself as the "author". Amusing in parts, with quotes from other Reacher stories, and interesting bits of information from the real world of the military.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jack Reacher 8 Dec 2012

I chose this book as I was mystified by what could constitute a whole book of rules. For someone who has read all the Jack Reacher books it is very entertaning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fiction 31 Dec 2012
By Mr. G. Johns VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An interesting follow up to any of Lee Child's Reacher novels, written as though his hero was writing it. But, how can Tom Cruise play Reacher in the movie? He's so tiny, and Reacher's a giant of a man, with all the body parts to fit his size...why a little man? I can't understand why Lee Child agreed to him being cast as our hero!
