This book of Knowledge is fantastic. It's really well thought out with all types of moves and holds being put in their own sections (eg. Armbars, Triangles, Arm Triangles, Omoplatas, Sweeps). It really is very thorough and teaches you how to use the Closed Guard very offensively. Just recently I was starting to lose love for the closed guard thinking it ties you to your opponent to much but this book really has altered that perception. The sheer depth of holds and subs on offer here and the detail BJ goes into to describe them is brilliant. The pictures are all colour with the two demonstrators (BJ and Dave Camarillo) wearing different colour Gi's for ease of visualisation. All in all and great book to help enhance your guard game. I personally hope he does another Book of Knowledge for Top Control.
