I also love Chuck Norris.

My good friend Nick—who, I believe, put Mr. Norris on the invitation list for his wedding—introduced me to the wealth of facts that are available regarding Norris’s awesomeness. Norris has a lot of wisdom to share about, well, everything—including the PR fundamentals of a successful launch.
