Got Fight?

got fight forrest griffinGot Fight? The 50 Zen Principles of Hand-to-Face Combat by Forrest Griffin, with Erich Krauss, 4/5

This in-your-face manliness manifesto was much, much funnier than the front cover lead me to expect, what with its bashed-up author and stupid title (to which Griffin vociferously objected, to his credit).  What it is: an R-rated, surprisingly witty, expletive-filled, laugh-inducing series of ramblings that are mostly centered on martial arts and dubious advice about being a Man.  What it is not: a martial arts how-to guide or factual account of Griffin’s MMA experience.

[Why I read it: I love MMA and pounced on this after my dad picked it up at the thriftstore.]

    Still not convinced I should read it even if you did give it a 4/5. Back to the pile next to the bed, though I wish I had it right now on this business trip than the one I brought, which I actually dropped in a trash can at the airport in Seoul. It wasn’t worth the carry on space it took up.

      Ha, it is pretty rough, but terribly funny. What book did you throw out? I just recycled a book recently too (that unfunny medical humor one), but it had a broken spine so I didn’t feel too bad.
