An excellent history of MMA,
This review is from: Total MMA: Inside Ultimate Fighting (Paperback)
Jonathan Snowden is a talented author whose genuine love of MMA history comes across on every page. Snowden's extensive knowledge of the sport will illuminate any reader with an interest in this growing phenomenon.
Exhaustively researched, Total MMA covers the wide (and much longer than you may know) history of the sport, bringing us up to the present day. He presents a fair and not always pretty portrayal of the inner workings of the business, casting a sometimes unsettling but always illuminating portrayal of the athletes, promoters, and other bizarre hangers on of the mixed martial arts world.
In addition, this book will make you fall in love with Kazushi Sakuraba all over again. Whether you're a MMA diehard or a TUF noob, this book will educate you to facets of the sport you may never have even known existed. Buy it!
