Since The Karate Kid first crane-kicked its way into the pop culture stratosphere in June of 1984, there hasn't been a week Ralph Macchio hasn't heard friendly shouts of 'Wax On, Wax Off' or 'Sweep the Leg!' Now, with Macchio reprising his role as Daniel LaRusso in the #1 ranked Netflix show, Cobra Kai, he is finally ready to look back at the movie that came to define him and give the fans something the've long craved. The book will be Macchio's joyful and celebratory reflection on the legacy of The Karate Kid in film, pop culture, and his own life. It will be a comprehensive look at a film that shaped him as much as it influenced the world. Macchio will share the untold story behind his starring role - the innocence of the early days, the audition process, and the filmmaking experience itself - as well as take readers through the birth of some of the film's most iconic moments. Overall, this is a nostalgic story that will bring readers back to the day they first met Daniel LaRusso, Johnny Lawrence, and Mr. Miyagi for the first time, but also provides a fascinating lens into how our pasts shape all of us, and how the past can come back to enrich one's life in powerful, surprising, and wonderful ways.
