Anyone read this yet ?
I will comment when I read..
I got 2 copies, one for me and 1 as a birthday present for a friend. Although its on a long backlog of books I have yet to get through
(its behind Life of Andre the Giant, which in turn is behind Bret the Hitman Hart Story)
Read "Hitman" now you slackass
I kinda know the general story.
He's the guy in blue and pink right?
What I heard from a friend who's only just discovered mma is it's a great read for her early life and the Olympics and crazy ass mum and stuff, but is a bit lacking in the later chapters. It's stops quite abruptly as far as ufc stuff and mentions nothing of acting. It sounded like the last bit was rushed.
Considering she's also only 28 with intentions to retire from fighting in her mid 30s, still very young (although an active life)
Joe Rogan had a very recent podcast with her and her trainer Edward, where she talks about when she first joined Glendale and how Edward refused to train her and actually didn't really take her seriously until after her first MMA fight.
(and "that" handshake incident, culminating from her dislike for TUF)
I would post a link but it's quite sweary (as you would expect from all parties).
Don't make me come over there.....
Oh wait... I got best of John Cena to watch too.
Looks like a good book. I'm interested, added it to my reading list . Thanks!
I look forward to having a read of this myself. Glimpsed a documentary of her the other day while I was hitting the treadmill at the gym. Very interesting character.
I don't read biographies, auto or otherwise, that are about people who are still alive or at least not retired.
I thought it was a very poorly written book overall.
The early chapters, and Olympic section was the most interesting to me.
The UFC chapters were very sparce.
Honda makes very poor life choices overall, and has been very successful considering them.
I too have this on a huge backlog of books to read. I may make a start on it sooner rather than later.
She has her detractors but I'm a big fan of hers.
