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

如果你是顧方蓁,你就會振作起來、「找到自己所長」;找到之後,還締造紀錄、衝破性別限制,奪得多項、多次世界冠軍。而且這一切都是在撫養三個孩子、營運一個成功的企業、年屆四十之後。

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

我早就想讀她的書,因為我想多知道一些這一切是如何發生的,而且,我自己也希望得著一些指引我如何更上層樓的啟示。而《巾幗槍神 世界冠軍之路》讓我想成為一個更好的人,倒是我始料未及的。

書中也有很多指點有心求進步的射擊選手的要領,例如:用膝蓋走路去訓練自己臥倒射擊!要摒除雜念——因為一兩句話就可以叫你瞬間失去專心!但更重要的是,方蓁培養出很多強項,讓她蛻變成最好的選手,也讓她昇華成自己的最佳版本。
