I downloaded this because I really enjoy the authors blog and twitter posts but I'm sorry but I was a little disappointed in the content. It's pretty short and although has a few humorous anecdotes I wouldn't say it something that is much needed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy 15 May 2011
By Riverfenix - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I bought this book after reading the first "review" which is obviously written by the author of the book.

I'll sum up this guide in a few sentences. If you choose to buy after reading my review, you deserve what you get.

- takes about 5 minutes to read. I'm not kidding. I am also a slow reader.
- if you have been in bjj for more than a month you know all these "tricks"
- the guide reads like a Maxim article, you know the ones, "5 easy ways to pick up chicks" or "get a six-pack over night"
- completely useless information

Thanks for taking my $2.99!

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Zen-ish low key approach to grappling- the way it should be 16 Jun. 2013
By Tony Jaguar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Read this on a 2 hour plane ride. Perfect light reading that gave me answers to why I almost passed out after my first sparring match and how to prevent that in the future. That's worth the three bucks in my opinion. In fact I'm open to this sort of investment rather than getting a free e-book but then having to pay all sorts of money for weird diets and video subscriptions that are out there.

Well written with a good sense of humor. So far what I've learned about BJJ is to be calm. Most of the good instructors will joke around a bit and all have a good sense of humor which I think is a good approach to life on and off the matt.

Looking forward to reading his other books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Humorous Look At Grappling 19 May 2011
By K. Akil - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Lazy Mans Guide to Grappling is a humorous look at grappling. The author relates his experiences and observations about grappling over the years. He exposes some of the tricks that grappling slackers use to get around some of the more tedious aspects of grappling. Over all it's a fun read, and worth reading if you are interested in Grappling, and MMA.

This book is a good read and so true about jiu jitsu. Every word, I really enjoyed it. I read the entire book in three days.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm Guilty... 10 Sept. 2011
By Caleb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I'm guilty.

I have done a lot of the things described in this book. It's weird when you read something like this because you realize all of the sneaky things you thought no one would notice is actually noticed by quite a few people. It was also cool to read something like this because there aren't many books about BJJ that aren't instructionals.

I hope the author keeps writing books like this one. It was funny, easy to read and is about a sport that I absolutely love. Money well spent and I was well entertained for a few hours.
