My Fight / Your Fight

my fight / your fight rousey regan arts 2015My Fight / Your Fight by Ronda Rousey with Maria Burns Ortiz, 3/5

I’ve never been much of a Rousey fan, but there’s an undeniably voyeuristic appeal to this first-hand account of the rise of the first woman to make it big in MMA.  Rousey’s work ethic, mental strength and accomplishments are inspiring and her prose is tolerable.  However, written before her only two losses, the book feels premature and some of the warrior rhetoric rings a bit hollow in light of her subsequent complete disappearance from the martial arts scene.

Why I read it: A guy from the gym brought his copy in for me.
