Chael Sonnen’s rise from small stages like Bodog Fights to a championship contender in the UFC is one of the most exciting and intriguing stories in mma. Awesome piece of art. Seriously, a book pretty much about the fight game that finds time to praise the insane genius that is Kinksi! BJ’s book was a linear story, upbringing, his early years fighting, his later years fighting.
In the tradition of people like Andy Kaufman, or even Borat, you can’t quite tell if what you are watching is an act, or even if it’s funny. Seriously, you aren’t going to be a ninja. Chael Sonnen is the only hope I see in making the Middleweight division really interesting again. Is this feature helpful?
Sonnen’s brilliant, incisive, and unique viewpoints have made him a favorite of fans, fellow athletes, and lazy journalists. Those last two small sections of the book were enough to push my rating up from three to four stars I secretly not so secretly now hate myself whenever I give a fighting book more than three stars.
What I do see eye to eye with him on well sort of are topics such as boring fighters, ridiculous personas fighters adopt, the nonsense they spout off, and the truly awful musical tastes of most fighters along with their choice of walkout songs.

Having said that [and having given credit, where credit is due], this book was underwhelming. Love him or hate him, Sonnen is a smart guy that deserves to be taken seriously In this sense I think I would have enjoyed it more as an audiobook. His disgust for the majority concern of minuscule problems and you even get a look in to his past that helped mold the man he is today.
May 17, Andrew rated it liked it Shelves: I would suggest looking up “The animated tales of Chael Sonnen” on youtube, or even his interview with CSC where he walked off the set. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. I figured he would be able to really provide some good material since he had time to think it out a little more.
But, that is the downside Even after reading, I can not get a good read on this guy.
Quite possibly the greatest trash talker of all time in mma and he has a hell of a way with a story. It’s the closest thing I’ve read that compares to Forrest Griffin’s initial laugh-out-loud work on the heels of UFC success. Backwoodsmen and unlearned folk call him the Walking Thesaurus. Aug 23, Patrick rated it it was ok. I made a mistake reading this after Undisputed by Chris Jericho, a bio of a different genre, but a genuinely funny book at hat.
You might think from the cover that you’re buying a biography by an athlete, but what you’re really purchasing is a manifesto on the way things ought to be told by someone who’s taken the time to do his research.
He likes to push peoples buttons, and just has a really interesting sense of humor. Oct 06, William Lotten rated it it was amazing. Is knowing how to almost totally minimize any risks make a great fighter? Jared Scott rated it it was amazing Mar 06, It is a book focused on dieting and fitness.
Ships from and sold by Amazon. He is certainly one of, if not the best, men on the mike in sports.
Once that goes out the way it’s. Seriously, do you think someone who spends their days trying to learn how to punch someone while sitting on their fat ass in a bookstore is ever going to be a real threat?
This is as a direct result of his father and wrestling coaches. He also explains in very ambiguous terms a couple of his more recent controversies TRT use, money laundering. The life of Chael, sarcastically told with the same wit that he takes with him into press conferences.
