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.
