**100% of the Royalties from the sale of this book are donated to www.HireHeroesUSA.org to help Veterans find jobs.**His life story is the stuff of legend. The man with the funny face and the funny voice who created his own ticket to fame and fortune.Yet history remembers Sylvester Stallone as a dim witted, impossibly muscled action star. Never have any of the stories or legends highlighted the single, greatest fact behind what started it all: HE WROTE!Of the 49+ films that Stallone has starred in, a staggering 24 have been written by him. A record not within reach of any other actor in history. So why is it that Stallone’s writing skills, arguably his greatest skill by far (other than his Herculean tenacity), have been entirely ignored?In this ground-breaking book, Travis Cody reveals the Inherent Genius behind Stallone’s life work as a writer. Inside, he dives deep into one of the greatest achievements of writing in cinematic history: Stallone’s flawless adherence to Joseph Campbell’s “The Hero’s Journey” with his four-film Rambo Series.Cody brings to light, for the first time ever, how Stallone pulled off a storytelling "magic trick" no one has been able to duplicate -- and few people could even see. Stallone's character Rambo not only completed a full hero's journey in each film, but when you take all four films together, you also get a single, perfect "meta" hero's journey that started in frame one of film one, and didn't end until the last frame of the fourth film. Most amazing of all, these four films were written and released over a period of 30 years!
