Overview

“The California Kid,” Mixed Martial Arts pioneer and former featherweight champ in World Extreme Cagefighting, Urijah Faber offers an unconventional and enlightening guide to mental dominance and personal success. The Laws of the Ring combines the wisdom of Robert Greene’s The 48 Laws of Power, the Eastern philosophy of the Sun Tzu classic The Art of War, and the humor of Got Fight? by Ultimate Fighting champion Forrest Griffin. The Laws of the Ring is, at once, a celebration of physical and mental toughness, a serious reflection on success and failure, a colorful account of Faber’s rise to greatness, and a fascinating look at life inside the cage.

Editorial Reviews

Bleacher Report
“An absolute tour de force . . . it won’t just change the way you think about Faber. It will change the way you think about how you’re living your own life.”
Library Journal
Headliner of the Ultimate Fighting Championship and former featherweight champion of World Extreme Cagefighting, Faber (aka the California Kid—he's from Sacramento and looks like a surfer) is a mixed martial arts superstar. His book is part life story, part Zen-like meditation on attaining self-awareness, and part self-help. Maybe it will help you but probably best for MMA fans, who are legion, as the 100,000-copy first printing suggests.
