In this review, Gunsite rangemaster and firearms trainer Il Ling New writes about what Vera Koo’s book, “The Most Unlikely Champion,” means to her, as featured in “The Daily Caller.” After Il Ling wrote the review, she met Vera at a trade show in Nashville. This photo was taken at that show, and later, Vera and Il Ling had dinner together with their husbands.

Vera reported that she believes she and Il Ling share

, which, according to Vera in this column over at “Women’s Outdoor News,” has this meaning: “In the Chinese culture, we believe in a concept called 

, which is when fate brings two people together. If you have 

 with another person, you will feel comfortable with that person. You can talk with each other like you have known each other forever, even if you have known each other only for a short time.”

It appears that Il Ling would agree with this conclusion from Vera, and you can read her review at “The Daily Caller,” below.

Vera Koo Book Review

What would you do if life handed you not 1, not 2, not 3, but a series of gut-wrenching, only-in-the-movies tragedies? What would you do if your life, as you knew it, had ended – not once, not twice, but so many times that you felt like the walking dead?

如果你是顾方蓁,你就会振作起来、「找到自己所长」;找到之后,还缔造纪录、冲破性别限制,夺得多项、多次世界冠军。而且这一切都是在抚养三个孩子、营运一个成功的企业、年届四十之后。

Koo’s autobiography, “The Most Unlikely Champion,” is nearly impossible to categorize, and it’s just as hard to put down. Short but deftly crafted, Koo’s and collaborator Justin Pahl’s book is paced like a mystery and reads like an intimate journal. It’s deep look into one woman’s journeys – yes, there are several – through unthinkable heartache, tragedy and dark family secrets, to find her way to personal bests and personal discovery.

Background On Vera Koo

我早就想读她的书,因为我想多知道一些这一切是如何发生的,而且,我自己也希望得着一些指引我如何更上层楼的启示。而《巾帼枪神 世界冠军之路》让我想成为一个更好的人,倒是我始料未及的。

书中也有很多指点有心求进步的射击选手的要领,例如:用膝盖走路去训练自己卧倒射击!要摒除杂念——因为一两句话就可以叫你瞬间失去专心!但更重要的是,方蓁培养出很多强项,让她蜕变成最好的选手,也让她升华成自己的最佳版本。
