    A Perfect Guide Through the World of Fighting!

    A Fighter’s Heart is an in-depth exploration of the world of fighting who by a man who simply wants to understand it. The book’s author, Sam Sheridan, takes the reader through his adventures while trying to experience anything and everything possibly connected to fighting. The story begins as Sheridan discovers fighting in college then sails around the world, ending up in Australia. Eventually he makes his way to Thailand, Brazil, Japan, Mexico, and a few gyms in the Unites States. The most important theme conveyed was “gameness,” which is the willingness and the drive to finish what is started. Everywhere Sheridan trained and everything he studied was centered on “being game” and having the heart to commit to what he wanted. I really liked this theme and how he portrayed all of his adventures, which always digressed to this idea. I didn’t like this book for one small reason: it had no climax. Sheridan ended the book without solving and kind of problem or struggle. However, I really liked this book overall and I would recommend it to almost anyone with a basic idea of traditional and sports fighting because I feel like it would appeal to them the most but anyone would love it, as well.
