    A lighthearted whimsical tale, appropriate for many age levels, and complete with a subtle, yet important, deeper message. One of my favorite books from the first read! Full of profound wisdom and touching moments that are sure to melt the coldest heart.

    “People are often unaware of the path they are on” This is a beautiful fairytale with profound messages whose purpose is to wake you up to your true/higher self and life in general. I didn’t know this book was going to be spiritual so that took me by surprise. In essence it’s a story about a knight who got stuck in his armor after deciding not to take it off at all times, so as to not lose time between his exploits of slaying dragons and rescuing damsels. One day his wife had enough and asked him “People are often unaware of the path they are on” This is a beautiful fairytale with profound messages whose purpose is to wake you up to your true/higher self and life in general. I didn’t know this book was going to be spiritual so that took me by surprise. In essence it’s a story about a knight who got stuck in his armor after deciding not to take it off at all times, so as to not lose time between his exploits of slaying dragons and rescuing damsels. One day his wife had enough and asked him to take it off or else she would leave with their son. The armor wouldn’t budge and so the knight embarked on a journey to find out how to remove it. “We’re all stuck in armor of a kind. Yours is merely easier to find.” It touches on a lot of themes, my favourites being: accepting instead of expecting to avoid disappointment, putting up defences to protect yourself, how when you’re with other people, you’re so concerned of showing your best image that you can’t let down your barriers and allow yourself or the other person to see what you’re trying to hide, never ceasing to understand more and more whilst being on the Path of Truth, ambition from the heart by benefiting all instead of solely yourself and that by giving power to your doubts and fears instead of seeing them as the illusions that they truly are, you’re harming yourself. Finally, letting go. This has become a favourite, I loved it very much!! I’m going to finish this review off with a quote: “Though this universe I own, I possess not a thing, for I cannot know the unknown if to the known I cling.”

    This is a beautiful, short story that leaves a positive message to all readers. It talks about knowing oneself and going through many obstacles to achieve peace and happiness. I really liked the way the story was told; as a story told at night, near a fire and by an experienced storyteller from old times. It can easily be passed on to our children or grandchildren without harm. It is a very healthy and pure story that makes us ponder a little about how much we know ourselves and how much we take This is a beautiful, short story that leaves a positive message to all readers.

I recommend the story; it is short, entertaining, makes you smile and go back to the old times where you're a kid and everything is possible.

    Gag. Horrible, boring, roll-my-eyes-every-three-seconds book. I had to read it for a university project and I hated it! Luckily it was short, otherwise I wouldn't have been able to finish it. These sort of books are just ridiculous. Well, I'm off to read something decent now. Gag. Horrible, boring, roll-my-eyes-every-three-seconds book.

    Unfortunately I was so bored with this book. Maybe it was because it was my first audiobook - and probably my last - and because the narrator had a strange way to pronounce ''ni" 's and "li" 's... It was close to torture, and it was a relief that it only lasted 20+ minutes. The forced didactic tone made it seem like a straightly self-help book rather than a tale with an underlying teaching intention, which I found extremely annoying.

The whole story was too short and I felt that nothing actually happened, while other small books have blown my mind in just a few pages (e.g. The egg by Andy Weir https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1...). And for my Greek friends: Παρότι δεν το άφησα να επηρεάσει την άποψη μου για το βιβλίο αυτό όταν το διάβασα κανονικά, θα ήθελα εδώ να εκφράσω το πόσο ανικανοποίητη έμεινα από τις εκδόσεις όπερα και την αντιμετώπιση που είχα όταν τους πρότεινα να μου στείλουν ένα αντίτυπο για να γράψω την κριτική μου. Εκτιμώ μια ευγενική άρνηση, και αυτό απέχει πολύ από αυτό που αντιμετώπισα. Τουλάχιστον δεν το αγόρασα αλλά το διάβασα από φίλη 0:)

    We read this book on Psychology class. I won't lie by saying that I was thrilled, since I seriously wasn't digging it at first. I though it was pretty boring, and my classmates thought so as well since most of them were falling asleep. The thing is that every time we finished a chapter, our teacher would ask us to express our opinions and thoughts. What did we get from the chapter? Which phrase caught our attention the most?

The thing is that every time we finished a chapter, our teacher would ask us to express our opinions and thoughts. What did we get from the chapter? Which phrase caught our attention the most? The interesting part started when my classmates actually started cooperating and I realized that there are so many different points of view. We all had a different opinion based on our inner demons and worries. I think everybody was pretty curious about this, so we all started getting into the story more deeply, actually discovering things about ourselves that we weren't aware of before. This book, in my a opinion, is pretty enjoyable, but definitely when you're surrounded by people who are willing to share their points of view. I wouldn't recommend it unless you're willing to take your time and psychoanalyze yourself a bit.

    A fun, soulful reading without complexity or hidden meaning. The message is clear, and I think most of us can learn a thing or two about the Knight's journey.

    Robert Fisher’s book is a not very subtle allegory about a knight who’s unwilling—and eventually unable—to remove his armor. Because of this his wife shows contempt for him, and his son barely even knows him. When he attempts to take off his amor, he realizes that he can’t get out of it on his own. He therefore sets out on a quest to find the wizard Merlin in order to ask him for help The armor is obviously a metaphor: the protagonist wears it day and night because he’s afraid and doesn’t want to Robert Fisher’s book is a not very subtle allegory about a knight who’s unwilling—and eventually unable—to remove his armor.

He therefore sets out on a quest to find the wizard Merlin in order to ask him for help The armor is obviously a metaphor: the protagonist wears it day and night because he’s afraid and doesn’t want to get hurt. It also makes him unwillingly hurt the people around him. We soon learn that the knight has to travel the path of truth in order to learn how to love himself. The path of truth is, appropriately enough, quite steep and long. Moreover, he has to enter three castles all by himself: the castle of silence, the castle of knowledge, and the castle of will and courage. Although The Knight in Rusty Armor is often overly simple and cliché, I think it’s an underrated book that deserves a chance. And since it’s a short read, you won’t regret losing too much time in case you don’t like it.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I loved this entire book because of how it followed the Hero’s Journey so well and all the insights I gained from it. I knew as I read about the Castle of Silence what would happen; the knight would finally listen to himself and discover something about himself. As I thought about it I wondered. “Why couldn’t it happen outside? What was it about being inside a castle that made him better able to listen to himself?” It hit me like a lightning bolt that writes “Duh” all over your forehead. It wasn I loved this entire book because of how it followed the Hero’s Journey so well and all the insights I gained from it. I knew as I read about the Castle of Silence what would happen; the knight would finally listen to himself and discover something about himself. As I thought about it I wondered. “Why couldn’t it happen outside? What was it about being inside a castle that made him better able to listen to himself?” It hit me like a lightning bolt that writes “Duh” all over your forehead. It wasn’t just about him being silent; which I thought was the point. The setting mattered too; outside there is bright colors and birds and very visually stimulating (distracting) things. There is also noise. Inside it was very simple, very plain; I imagine it was at least a little dim where the fire’s glow didn’t reach. In other words it was restful, which is one of the best settings to start thinking about things. It was also silent. At first the knight tried to fill the silence with the sound of his own voice, but when that was exhausted, he filled it with one of the best things you can fill silence with: thoughts. He needed to be silent in order to do that, but he also needed the silence around him. The Castle of Silence was the best place for him to start thinking about himself. I realized that while the knight was traveling on the Path of Truth, as he could not physically visit the Castles out of order, he couldn’t do this mentally either. When you are on a Path of Truth; in order to make greater realizations you must first make lesser ones. Also, lesser opposition will gain lesser insights, and greater opposition will gain greater insight. I don’t think it would have been possible for the knight to gain the realizations he did in the Castle of Knowledge without him realizing what he did in the Castle of Silence. Each successive Castle is an escalation of the previous. I also thought it was interesting how in the first castle only the knight could go in, but in this one he, Squirrel, and Rebecca went in together. I liked it how they helped him, but also how in the end he was the one how had to figure out things instead of just being told everything (except at the apple tree). Sometimes we do need other people to help us realize all the things we do not know. The first time I read the about the Will and Daring challenge I was a little confused. When the knight goes up to the Dragon the first time, he says to himself that the Dragon is an illusion and so he won’t get burned. When he does get burned, his friends tell him that the reason he got burned was because he believed the dragon was real. I thought, “No he didn’t! It just told you he didn’t believe it was real, why do they say he did?” After this he goes back chanting “Fear and doubt are illusions.” The Dragon shrinks away to the size of a frog and is defeated. I thought, “What was the difference?” Then I realized that the reason the first time didn’t work is because the knight was telling himself that the physical manifestation of fear and doubt (the Dragon) was an illusion. What he needed to do was regard the actual fear and doubt as an illusion. The Dragon itself was not the problem, it was what it represented. By believing in Fear and Doubt the first time, he believed that the Dragon was real even when he told himself he didn’t. If you think about it hard enough, there’s a lot you can learn about yourself and other people from this short and simple book.

    This book is full of cheap new-agey "wisdom", lazy anachronisms, and hippy nonsense. There is a tiny kernel of worthwhile insight, but it is not worthwhile.

    This book was recommend by a friend of mines that just said it had everything to be one of my personal favourites. I have to say she was right, before I read the book however I saw the animation some Portuguese students did for a school project, once the animation ended I was caught myself thinking "This is good, but is this all there is?". Luckily for me the Portuguese publishing house of this book had a sale sometime after and I could get the book half price.

This is a "look at your life, look at your choices" kind of book, but mostly is a book about how we see ourselves and how we want others to perceive us and understand us. How our actions have real consequences in the real world. A must read for new age fans and for everyone that enjoys a good 'thinking' book.

    Still numbed by the holiday season, I wasn't sure of what my first read for the new year would be. The Knight in Rusty Armor captured me from the first few pages, and throughout it, I found pieces of me and pieces of people I know. I was enthused about the way Robert Fisher presented himself in a specific part of the story. There were so many truths inside learned the hard way in life. It is a must-read for all ages, and I am more than happy to have started my year with this book. Still numbed by the holiday season, I wasn't sure of what my first read for the new year would be.

This book, though written in the Spanish of Spain and not in Latin American Spanish, was not too difficult and exposed me to a number of new vocabulary words and examples of many grammatical structures that I have studied but not widely used. It’s a wonderful story of a knight who wants to be the greatest in the realm. In order to be ready to fight at any moment at the drop of a hat, he never takes off his armor. This causes certain marital difficulties with his wife, Julieta, and with his young son. Eventually, his armor oxidizes and he can not remove it. With the faceplate locked into place, he can not feed himself. With the help of Merlin, the magician, and a cast of wonderful forest creatures, our Caballero frees himself from his armor and learns some valuable secrets on how he should live his life. This is undoubtedly a book for adolescents. However, as an educational vehicle, I found it quite useful and finishing it was very rewarding.

    El caballero de la Armadura Oxidada (The knight in rusty armor in English) was a book easy and fast to read, we finished it in less than an hour. It is a self-help book (not a super fan) but it was fun to read it together, we laugh during some parts 🤣

    I cannot say enough good things about "The Knight in Rusty Armor" by Robert Fisher. It's hysterical. It's a quick read. It has all the elements of classic allegory mixed with elements of folklore and myth. If you want there's even a decent life lesson the reader can pull from the tale.

Upon finding him Merlin sends the knight on the Path of Truth and through the three castles of Silence, Knowledge, and Will and Daring. During his quest the knight learns valuable lessons about life and himself. Fisher is a comedy writer and imbues the entire take with classic wit and humor. This is an easy tale to enjoy. I'd recommend it to anyone.

    Tries to give the reader a message of acceptance of life 'as is' and talks about the power of love, especially love for ourselves. The problem is that the author seems to be very ignorant of what human life actually is, so the message gets lost in a ton of contradictions.

The book comes off better as a child's first entry to medieval fantasy literature, but it still demands that the parents carefully explain to the child why the message in the book is flawed at many levels. With roughly 70 pages (varies if you're reading a different edition or translated version), divided into 7 chapters, it's a quick read with incredibly shallow content, so I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

    Small book, very philosophical and essential messages. I enjoyed it all and I found myself identifying with whatever it was written in there. I read it again, after I passed the second castle. I guess I will read it again when I get out of this third and last one. I very much enjoyed the end...the beggining. Update: 31/01/2020 it took me a while but I'm out of the last castle and I'm loving it :) Thank you Sammy. Small book, very philosophical and essential messages.

    A nice story about self-acceptance, and how we build inner walls around us forgetting who we really are (represented with the shiny armor). There’s a thing with the wife and child, a cliffhanger that is a little bit confusing, that and the time travel thing.

    2 1/2 stars. This is a book that's trying too hard to be deep and profound and forgot to be interesting. Also, by keeping religion out of the conversation, it presents a generic watered down version of truth. There are a few nuggets of wisdom to be found, but it's a slog to get to them. 2 1/2 stars.
