Dragon Ball Z "It's Over 9,000!" When Worldviews Collide

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Akira Toriyama’s Dragon Ball is the world’s most recognized anime and manga series, having entertained millions of fans across the globe. The legendary rivalry of the last two full blooded Saiya-jins, Goku and Vegeta, is the iconic example of a lifelong conflict that inspires fans to burst through their own personal limits.

With a foreword by Ryo Horikawa, the Japanese voice of Vegeta, Dragon Ball Z “It’s Over 9,000!” When Worldviews Collide is the first e-book to explain where “It’s Over 9,000!” came from, how the original video spread to receive over 7 million views, and why it continues to be such a popular catchphrase. 

Featuring a thoroughly researched analysis of Goku and Vegeta’s colliding worldviews, this e-book helps the reader better understand why conflict is necessary for profound personal growth and character development.

Referencing East Asian belief systems and high tech futuristic paradigms, Derek Padula, the author of The Dao of Dragon Ball book and blog, provides a deeper understanding of this epic story and the inherent values within it. 

It will forever change the way we look at Dragon Ball Z.

Amazing read

I learned about this book from Derek himself on the amazingness that is Reddit. I figured,"It's only a couple bucks, might as well read it and see what it's about." After reading this book, I can honestly say that I haven't had a good read in awhile until this book. If you have ANY questions or inquiries about this fraction of an instant in the Dragon Ball Universe, then THIS is the key to unlocking them. Honestly, I'm a little surprised this isn't selling for a little more than the list price, considering how great it goes into detail. Thank you so much Derek for enlightening my world and when I finally have enough money, I shall purchase your other book(s)!

Thank you for this book!

I knew I wasn't trippin' when I too clearly noticed the Dao of Dragon Ball! :+) ~
