Praise

“[Macchio’s] down-to-earth writing style suits the behind-the-scenes tales and his heartwarming meetings with fans well… Macchio’s sweet, nostalgic memoir is as family-friendly and instructive as its inspiration.” —Kirkus

“Macchio, star of 1984’s The Karate Kid, produces another feel-good hit with this breezy reflection on his experience making the movie…Macchio writes, ‘The film is a prime example of when Hollywood gets it all right. It teaches and inspires through pure entertainment.’ Fans will find this just as entertaining.”—Publishers Weekly

Waxing On is a refreshing look into a film that touched our hearts and an era that defined so many of us. Through honest and witty reflection, the reader is plunged back into the unforgettable world of The Karate Kid, and the magic that happens when Hollywood is on point. Macchio shares his unique perspective with humor and humility as well as with surprising relatability. I was a fan before, but now I feel like a friend.” —Brooke Shields, New York Times bestselling author of There Was a Little Girl

“I love my fellow “Greaser’, Ralph. But if I’m being completely honest, I’ve never gotten over the existential pain of The Karate Kid’s ongoing success and relevance. What does that movie have that Youngblood doesn’t?! Well, after reading Ralph’s fun and insightful recounting, I now totally get it. Long live The Karate Kid!” —Rob Lowe, New York Times bestselling author of Stories I Only Tell My Friends

“A breezy read that disproves the clanky, “Nice guys finish last,’ cliche, but re-defines it as, ‘Nice guys LAST.’ This memoir will put you in the BEST mood, I promise.” —Patton Oswalt, New York Times bestselling author of Silver Screen Fiend
