Review: The Knight in Rusty Armor by Robert Fisher

Robert Fisher was born in Long Beach, California. At the age of 19, he began his career writing comedy scripts for Bob Hope and Groucho Max. He was also the author or co-author on more than 400 radio and 1,200 television shows. This led to him being nominated for the Emmy award and the Humanitarian Adward four times.

The Knight in Rusty Armor is his book. It has been translated into Spanish and Catalan. This book contains seven chapters that represent our assumed life. It is told as a story. The knight’s dilemma is the first chapter. He no longer removes his armor because he loves it. His wife forces him to take it off. In the second chapter, called in the woods with Merlin, he discovers that everyone puts on different armor to show off that they are afraid of being called foolish or to make others believe that they are. Merlin is the next chapter.

The gentleman must start the next chapter with a path on a path called “The Path of Truth”. He realizes that everyone walks along a particular path regardless of their perceptions and that sometimes it’s necessary to turn around to see the truth. The knight then encounters these castles and learns important lessons like the fact that while we all fear being alone, we also need to be alone to think and have fun. The last chapter, called The Peak of Truth, he discovers that the only way to know the unknown is to the known.

After passing through all his barriers, the knight is freed from his armor and gains knowledge. In the end, he is a knight without armor, a knight who is full of knowledge.
