lol at this review of Fighters Notebook on Amazon


1.0 out of 5 stars Outdated content, poor photography and horrible binding

By C. Garcia on September 1, 2003

Format: Ring-bound

The techniques in this book are badly outdated, even for a complete novice. There are several books on the market with more useful information, like Gene LeBell's Encyclopedia of Finishing Holds, which also explains the techniques much better.
Another problem with the Fighter's Notebook is that many of the techniques shown work only if the opponent is completely willing and cooperative--when was the last time you encountered such an opponent on the street or in a competition?
The photographs aren't crisp enough to give a clear view of the techniques. They're fuzzy and have poor contrast, usually too dark. Hiring a professional photographer would've been the right thing to do for a book this pricey, but, alas, the authors took the cheap route. The pictures also don't show a lot of the transitions between moves, so you see a setup and in the next picture, the hold is clamped on. But how was it done?
The quality of the book itself is embarrassing, especially for the price. I always handled mine with care and never took it out of my home, yet it still has pages falling apart. Very [weak].
Also, don't be fooled by the author's claim that he "runs The World's Best Source for Mixed Martial Arts Information". That title is self-proclaimed. He actually runs a website with a message board that, granted, has a lot of members, but that hardly makes him an authority on fighting qualified to write a book on the subject and charge such an outrageous price. The site isn't so much a source of information as a collection of banner ads, popups and links to advertisers. It has event listings and school listings, but nothing that will improve you as a martial artist. As for being "Commissioner of the North American Grappling Association," that title is misleading as well. He is commissioner of a promotion run by his close friend and business partner, Kip Kollar. NAGA is absolutely NOT a sanctioning body, but rather a business venture.
