The Way of the Fight
It was a really great book and let's you see where GSP came from and how he became who he is today.
Not a typical MMA book. On the edges, GSP has always appeared mentally "deeper" than most other fighters, as he chooses to depict his sport as an art form instead of a fight. This book really enables the reader to gain an inside look into the development of a campion and a well rounded human being.
Inspiration and admiration
I am a 48 yr old happily married father of five and an active amateur masters boxer. I find this book to be an inspiration to me and I can relate to the different mental and physical challenges Georges and his coaches openly express in these pages. I'm also a surviver of cancer. But I see the battle of training described here as similar to that of fighting a horrible disease. It really comes down to the fight. This book is more about life than just MMA or fighting. I really like the honesty and transparency of all who contributed. What make George's great in my mind after reading this book is his decision to make a total commitment to his ultimate goal. At some point that decision was made. It tells me he is a man of his word. His word to himself. That makes him a rare individual. That I admire. One of the best books I've read in quite some time. Thanks to George's for being a Champion in life, even when injured! -
