Nathan Shepka about this book: Jean Claude Van Damme: actor, martial artist and to a legion of loyal fans, an icon. The man who brought his on screen high kicking antics to the West and built a career on low budget fighting tournament movies, followed by a stint as a Hollywood A-lister in the 90's before the changing face of cinema and drug addiction problems got in his way. But after years making direct to video movies, he has become a more recognised face once again and has received recent acclaim for his acting performances in J.C.V.D. and The Expendables 2.
Jean Claude Van Damme: A Career in Kicking Ass, chronicles his filmography from his first movie through to his most recent, this is Van Damme as you've never seen him before, providing the perfect accompaniment to any action aficionado or moviegoer looking to delve into the Belgian bruiser's back catalogue and explore the highs and lows of his decades of experience in the business. Welcome to the journey from fresh faced young heartthrob to brooding older avenger and proof that The Muscles from Brussels is not just a silly nickname, but a man striving to become something more than the stereotype the media has created.
