First, I find it rather disturbing from an intellectual stand point that there would be 64 five star reviews, most of which were posted before the book was even released, the day of, or a few days after. This is very fishy and I really hope Dave Camarillo had nothing to do with it. With that being said, I assume all the reviews are the same person, people who train with Dave, people who helped write/publish the book, or others somehow involved with Dave or the publication in one way or another.

This book is horrible. It is quite easily one of the worst jiu jitsu books ever written. The book can best be summed up as: always look for the submission. That's good advice, especially against better opposition when a lot of submissions occur in transition or scrambles. Other than that overarching point, the majority of the book is just different arm bar set ups. It doesn't go over a lot of submissions or how to even get to certain positions. It usually starts off with Dave already in an advantageous position (like side control) and proceeds to show how to do an armbar variation. Of course, for a lot of people buying the book, the problem is they can't even get to that position.

Other than being one dimensional (arm bars mostly), the books major flaw is the writing style and format. It is structured like you're reading some type of military brief from the government, where Dave and his partner are referred to in the third person, they use various names (most of which no one reading ever uses) rather than common terms like "arm bar", and uses words for what appears to be only because they have a lot of letters. It is not well written.

This book is almost unreadable. The layout is gimmicky with a high ink to information ratio. The pictures are about a quarter of the size they should be. The font and light colored text make for very difficult reading.

Whatever ideas the author wanted to get across are compromised by the very poor typesetting.

Dave Camarillo knows his stuff, there is no doubt. Unfortunately, writing style and terminology leave a lot to be desired. The book reads like a government issue military manual, which is quite off putting.

The are lots of submissions demonstrated, mainly armbar variation, however the faux military terms make reading this book a drag and can often cloud important details. They even put me off from picking it up again and going thru it once more.

All in all, there are better istructionals than this one. If you like armbars and Camarillo pick it up, otehrwise you won't miss anything important.

This is what happens when the good idea fairy comes around... Not sure why they decided to write it in some military report style format. Made it hard to follow.(for me at least) Had it been written like any other book the out come may have been different.

The font is so light and small I can barely read it. It is not laid out well and has a lot of useless fake military jargon/terms.

This book should be called, 1000 ways to armbar. The way it was written, while very stylized, is not my cup of tea.

It's not a book for advancing positions or sweeps or transitions. This book has one aspect: submissions. It's got great submissions from every position, from lots of situations.

It is a little hard to read at first, until you get used to the layout.

But for a more advanced bjj practitioners, it will improve submission knowledge. Good book.

I agree - the book is not organized in a manner that makes it enjoyable - maybe its the font and layout. Good techniques, but it is just hard too read. Dave is awesome though
