Someone asked me why I was reading this book. They asked because shes a female UFC star - not someone I have a lot in common with. I don't really care what she does to be honest. I picked up the book because I know how good she is at what she does. She's the best in the world in her profession. So when I saw she had a book coming out, it was a no-brainer to give it a shot.
To put things in perspective, she began training for MMA in 2010 (after taking a year off from Judo) while she was working three jobs just to make ends meet. Since then she's 11-0 and has dominated women's MMA. She's been in movies like The Expendables, Fast 7, and the new Entourage movie, and she was called the world's most dominant athlete on the cover of a recent Sports Illustrated. All of this in 5 years. In a field where there was no proven track record for success. Anyone who's done that, I want to know more about.
This isn't a review, I just think there was a lot of great insight into the mind of a top performer. I'm just going to share some of my favorite parts:
