From the Author
This book is not just another book on mixed martial arts. It is the story of mma's biggest promoter of mixed martial arts in the world, and a very controversial sports management figure. The reader gets to see Dana's life from the beginning to present, his family background, the struggles Dana endured for 4 years before the UFC finally turned a corner and began to make a profit and the person his wealth, fame and power has created. This all through the eyes of his mom, who from day one was one of his biggest supporters and now possibly one of his biggest critics.

This book has no literary value what so ever and, while it is an attempt to attack the character of Dana White, what it more clearly does is expose the bitterness of an often absent, frequently intoxicated and chronically bitter woman who is trying to use her son's success to snatch her own 15 minutes of fame.
I've never met Dana White. If I were Dana's media coach I would advise him to soften his approach and his vocabulary, but if Dana is in fact a hostile, angry, or volatile person - this book provides many incites as to how he may have become that way.
Mr.s White, it is you who should be ashamed. Any mother who would write in this manner about her son deserves to be ignored.
I truly loved this book about a mothers love for her son, and the hardships this women faced as a single parent.
I enjoyed a walk in time with Ms.White, its never easy being a working parent but a single mother has it especially hard.
Its a shame that someone with such love for her children and who worked so hard to give them more than she had as a child is rewarded with such selfishness.
I am truly sorry on the loss of your mother and son.
This book is overflowing with emotion which sometimes comes across as confusing. The anger she feels towards her son is somewhat tinged with sorrow at how things have turned out for him; and between themselves.
While I received a free review copy, the price of this ebook also bothers me. If you genuinely want to share your story then money wouldn't be your motivation.
On the other side of it, there's a mother who is proud of what her son has accomplished and wants to shout it to the world. The book is filled with pictures and details that few have seen before.
So, if you're looking for an objective on who Dana White currently is, this book isn't for you. But if you want to know a bit more about the boy he was and his past, then yes, this book will have you turning the pages.
Offensive content?: I would rate it PG13.
Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author through Orangeberry Book Tours. I did not receive any payment in exchange for this review nor was I obligated to write a positive one.
Unfortunately, this book doesn't really provide that - nothing worthwhile anyway. Instead, this book appears to have been written by a VERY bitter mother with a huge axe to grind. According to his mom (the author), Dana & her were very close most of their lives. Then when he became successful with the UFC, he turned into the devil she always thought he was, and abandoned his family and friends. I'm not exaggerating either - this lovely woman told of the day she gave birth to Dana and how she looked into his eyes and thought they were "soulless". By page 8 of this book, you realize what you're getting into and what kind of person his mother is. This book doesn't make Dana White look bad, it makes his mother look bad. REALLY bad.
Besides what appears to be a book filled with bias, coming fron one side of the story, it's also a complete unorganized mess. The entire book she jumps around to different points in their lives, making it hard to keep track of what happened when. Even the photos are unorganized - there's a bunch of photos, printed very small, without captions. At the beginning of the book is a list of some of the photo captions, which is incomplete and out of order, making the whole thing even more confusing.
Unless you collect MMA books like me, don't waste your time and don't give this nasty woman the few bucks she's looking for. Even if it was well written & interesting, it's only approx 130 pages with large font, so hardly worth the cost to begin with.
