I don't like to be negative or to leave negative reviews, but I was really disappointed in this book. The author presents very little information you couldn't think of on your own if you thought about ways to get better at grappling without grappling for 5 minutes. Some examples of things the author suggest you do are to; make yourself stronger, get in better shape, stretch, rest, study jiu-jitsu DVD's and books, and use a grappling dummy. Not very innovative. I also really didn't like the writing style. The author has a Phd, and writes like someone who has spent a lifetime in academia, i.e. he uses a lot of words to say very little. There are tidbits of good information, which is why I gave it 3 stars, but overall this book hardly seems worth the 3.99 I paid for it.

I bought the Kindle version of this book and read it today. I'm recovering from a surgery and will be off of training for about five more weeks, so I'm trying my best to "train" by reading, watching training videos and matches, and thinking about what I want to do when I'm recovered. I like what this author has to say, a lot. While some of it could be described as common sense, if it were so common I'd have figured it out and been doing it already! The book is well organized and well paced, and his writing style is informal and personal. I'd recommend it to anyone, but especially those of us in the beginning to early-middle stages of our grappling journeys.

I have read all of Bakari Akil's BJJ books so far, and this is one is as excellent as the others. There is some repetition here, some of the stories/analogies were previously mentioned in his other books. This is not a bad thing though, as someone who has not read the other books can also pick up the pearls of grappling wisdom. All in all I would say that this book has revitalized my love for grappling and given me inspiration for when I am not able to be on the mats. Thanks Bakari!
