Firstly, I will point out I don't like Sonnen for that reason I will not be spending 16 bucks on his book. However, for those who are a fan of his it should be entertaining. But you will be consider a sucker as I'm sure anybody here can write 320 pages of fictional entertainment.

If this book had some non fictional facts i would buy it, but at the end of the day your buying a self help book towards success from a man who has never held goal.

IMO he should have done a stand up comedy routine rather than a book, i would spend 16 bucks on that, than waste my time reading 320 pages of bs.

First, I don't understand how anyone with a basic grade school level of reading comprehension could read chaels intro and think this book was going to be anything other than entertainment.

maybe you could post your resume so we can see what a goal oriented person can accomplish?

I was talking about mma goal, you really think the man is going to write 320 pages without some legit information such as his work ethic ? Realistically I see the book being as a joke, but there will be some factional information in there that will help us understand chael. To me a 320 page book for entertainment purposes that only appeals to a mma demographics seems to be a waste. If it does have some legit information like he says "Inside this book I offer you my knowledge of physics, politics, linguistics, history, and physiology. " He should wait until July to release it.

Here is the thing can he do that? I know he could do that in the ufc, but with a book can he bash silva without getting sue as it is likely to be publish by a independent company? It will likely not happen, but it would be funny as hell if a lawsuit comes out from the book.

I'll bet there is at at least a chapter on how he likes his steaks prepared.

I can't wait to commit 'property' fraud and download a copy of this book from the internet completely free.

Has a certain poetic irony to it

Good point!

It would need some context, so the previous chapter would have to be "How to Properly Slap Your Enemies Wives Bottoms".

Wow. We've only just starting discussing the content possibilities and already we have enough for a considerably deep tome.

Surely he'll need several volumes.
