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?
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.
