Product Description

Product Description

THE WORLD IS CHANGING
We are no longer at the bottom of the food chain.

The tigers and the lions and the Man-enemies of antiquity are safely caged and emasculated in public zoos and national parks.

But new enemies have emerged and they are insidious masters of stealth: the illnesses, viruses and diseases that largely exist in contemporary society because of man’s penchant for excessive consumption and his lack of physical activity. With the need for hunting and gathering and living off our wits rapidly declining, the under-used physical body is becoming less of a sinewy working tool and more of a cumbersome liability. We have lost not only our desire for the warrior mentality; we have lost our reason for it. Infirmity is kicking sand in all our faces, and this has to change if we are to survive as a species.

In his powerful new book, Geoff Thompson, martial arts legend, says that people have forgotten why it is important to be courageous.

Warrior is a simple, step-by-step guide to re-booting our purpose and reclaiming our warriorship.

More About the Author

Until the age of thirty Geoff Thompson had worked through a plethora of menial jobs, from glass collector to floor sweeper; he even spent a decade working as a nightclub bouncer.

Convinced that there must be more to life than this, Geoff decided to become a martial arts instructor (polled as the number one self defence instructor in the world by Black Belt magazine USA) then followed this by living out his dream of becoming a writer.

He is now the author of thirty-four books published in 15 languages, five multi-award-winning films (one BAFTA nominated, one BAFTA winning), three stage plays and hundreds of published articles.

Geoff's autobiography, Watch My Back, has been adapted into a major motion picture, Clubbed.

Format:Paperback
This is a strange review to write - not because this is a poor quality book (far from it) but because it should feel like a new chapter in the authors life (I think it's his first time with a new publisher, and the book looks pretty spectacular in terms of design and style - it feels totally fresh).

However, what this feels like instead is not something totally new, but more a distillation of everything Mr Thompson has written about before or mentioned in his bi-weeky podcasts, but with a new found focus and drive to hammer home not only a message but an actual way of living that can totally change your life for the better.

Am I a long time reader of his? Yes - and I'm also a prime candidate for this book and the wisdom that is splattered within its relatively short 280 pages. A wealth of life changing and life affirming information is contained within it, some of it repeated from earlier tomes (which is no bad thing really - just reinforcing his/your belief) and if you are looking to change not only your life but your physique as well this is a detailed and above all honest account of what you need to do to begin and ultimately complete that journey.

In many ways Warrior feels like the last book in a fantastic series of three (his previous books Shadow Hunter and Beginners Guide to Darkness are certainly companion pieces to this one) and its interesting that following on from those ground breaking texts this is the book that pulls all that information together into a workable format that gives you an actual plan to follow for improving yourself at the end of each chapter - something that has been lacking in previous outings.

5.0 out of 5 stars back to the meaning of life 17 July 2010
By JGM
Format:Paperback
this book reads like a manual for life. i'd recommend all of Geoff's back catalogue, and i'd certainly recommend this one. it's gutsy and full of love, muscular and cerebral, meat and potatoes yet spiritual. this is countless years of research, experience and wisdom presented in a way accessible to all. it is a passport out of darkness, illness, mediocrity, but a passport doesn't necessarily grant you a good holiday - there is work to be done, set at the end of each chapter, and this is another of the books strengths.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life Changing 24 Aug 2010
By M Clark
Format:Paperback
This is quite simply Geoff Thompsons best work to date. Nothing else he has produced comes close to this. Geoff has reached a new level with his writing and if the reader absorbs the knowledge contained within its pages, and then goes off and applies that knowledge in their daily life, the possibilities are endless. I run a martial arts group and I have recommended that all my students buy this book because the message contained within is so important.
Good advice is seldom what we want to hear!

5.0 out of 5 stars Be all you can be... 18 July 2013
By OO.
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm tempted to leave this space blank in accordance with the power of silence that speaks ever so loudly, positively and fearlessly (when you read it you'll understand) but I won't for the simple fact that this book is a great book and you need to know it is. Do you really want to be all you can be? Then read this wonderful book and "practice" every day in every way all its teachings; LOVE everything. Thank-you Mr Thompson!

Awesome Book.

A real call to arms as to how you should / could live your life with a warrior's mindset... I read this a year or so ago and still quote some of the lines...

"There are no queues to the squat rack" - Well there certainly are in my gym!!!
