Book Description

10 Jun 2012
“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.

Review

“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.” (Bleacher Report)

From the Back Cover

What's your passion?

For Urijah "The California Kid" Faber, fighting is not just a thrill but an act of self-expression. From his first fight in the outlaw MMA days of 2003, Urijah recognized his passion for the sport—and since then the former WEC World Featherweight Champion, now fighting as a top bantamweight in the UFC, has been living his dream. As one of the most exciting, charismatic fighters today, with a loyal following in the MMA community, Urijah is well known for his inventive fight style, cutting-edge approach to fitness, and California swag.

In The Laws of the Ring, Urijah relates the full story of how he has made a career out of a highly demanding sport. Even outside the ring, his passion for fighting has motivated him to do so much more—to open his own fitness center, create a sports clothing line, lead a fight team, and recently to coach up-and-coming fighters in the television show The Ultimate Fighter. But even the California Kid couldn't do it all without constant hard work, healthy habits, and a whole lot of positive thinking. With his thirty-six "Laws of Power," Urijah shares the life lessons he's learned along his unconventional path, drawing from personal experience to give readers a sense of life inside the ring—and show how to take those lessons into their own worlds.

Part manifesto for success, personal journey, and meditation on a well-lived life, The Laws of the Ring is filled with funny, provocative, and inspirational stories for a colorful glimpse into the rise of a young superstar, and the philosophy behind his accomplishments. With clear-eyed perspective and down-to-earth advice, Urijah zeroes in on getting the life you want—and living it to the fullest.

5.0 out of 5 stars The voice of experience 28 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback
This book is part motivational manual, part inspirational and 100% gripping. A great book and a great story. Urijah Faber has a great way of seemingly talking to his audience straight through the book. Unlike someone who has just decided to write his own autobiography Faber had spent time coming up with a concept for his book, and written it as a motivational manual of how to reach the top of your profession using his life experiences as an examples. It is extremely well written. Faber is giving one message out in this book, Find out what you are passionate about! Then do everything in your power to make this to incorporate into your life as much as possible. He does come across as a mutational speaker and excludes confidence out of the pages.

I bought this book as I was interested in Faber's fighting style despite being a wrestler, he has great hand and throws punches in bunches, he has great body and head movement. Also once he gets a fight to the ground he is not content to "lay and pray", he is always looking for a finish and more often than not he finds it. After reading the book I became a fan of Urijah Faber the person as well.

Faber is unconventional and I think the best word to describe his would be as a pioneer. I said the book was engaging. Whilst reading the first chapter it was as if he had (not just) people like me in mind but me specifically! I could not have described my impression of Faber better then he himself said. To me he reminded me a bit of Ken Masters from Street Fighter II, he is the stereotypical all American jock, with all the usual perks and fighting seems like a side avenue for him rather then something he needs to do. If that is what you thought of Faber read this first chapter.

As a fan of faber I've found this book very interesting and have enjoyed reading about his road to success. Although I'm a big fight fan I would even recommend this book to those who aren't , due to the motivational nature of the book and good use of humour throughout.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Laws of the ring 5 Oct 2013
By Shane
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought The Laws of the ring due to having read recent reviews on GSP's book and a couple of reviewers saying they enjoyed Urijah Faber's book a lot better, so I thought I would give this book a go.

The book is broke down into 36 laws (chapters) entailing a law e.g. law no. 5: know yourself. I enjoyed the book but felt it was a bit slow at times and felt some laws are pretty basic e.g. law no. 3: create healthier habits, law no. 15: emulate the successful. Although, some laws are really fun to read, my favourite being law no. 23: be the bigger man, covering what happened to Urijah on a trip to Indonesia.

I really enjoyed the book but it being a bit slow at times and some basic laws it lost a star.
