Revue de presse

“Like St-Pierre, this book is part philosophical, part scientific, part business-tutorial and even part self-help, with carefully selected pieces of the fighter’s personal story interwoven throughout. It’s all fascinating, coming from one of the most evolved fighting minds the sport has ever produced.” (SportsIllustrated.com )

“The Way of the Fight delivers a great deal . . . part biography, part self-help, part philosophy. It is a book that, read in the right manner, teaches more than it tells.” (Bleacher Report )

“An interesting view into the psyche of an athlete . . . the most insightful view to date of a fighter and person that has not only dominated his sport, but has been one of the foundational figures bridging the gap between MMA’s community and the greater mainstream sports audience.” (Sherdog )

Présentation de l'éditeur

UFC fighter, Georges “Rush” St. Pierre, shares the lessons he learned on his way to the top, in The Way of the Fight, revealing how he overcame bullying and injury to become an internationally celebrated athlete and champion.

The reigning UFC welterweight champion, St. Pierre seemed untouchable until injury derailed him and jeopardized his title and his career. Determined to make his comeback, he embarked on a careful regimen of physical therapy. He also used this healing period to assess his life, where he's been, what he's achieved, where he wants to go, and and lessons that helped shape who he is.

In The Way of the Fight, Canadian championship fighter St. Pierre invites fans into the circle of his life, sharing his most closely guarded memories. A compelling memoir that offers an intimate, gritty look at a fighter’s journey, told through inspiring vignettes, GSP is a moving account of commitment and power, achievement and pain, dedication and conviction from one of the world's greatest champions.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Part biography,Part Self-Help, Part Philosophy 23 avril 2013
Par Trent Reinsmith - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
In the introduction to his first book, The Way of the Fight, UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre proclaims: "My goal here is to write the greatest book ever written."

This is a very ambitious goal for any first-time author. If those words came from another professional fighter--hell, if it came from any other writer, it would be almost laughably overambitious. Coming from St-Pierre, the statement seems like it is something obtainable.

St-Pierre is, after all, a fighter who got to the top of the heap by outworking his opposition, by overcoming obstacles, by setting ambitious goals and then going out and achieving them.

It would have been easy for St-Pierre to sit down and write a book filled with fluff, with nothing but tales of glory of St-Pierre the conquering hero. That angle's been taken by many athletes before him, and it is an angle that works well. If the focus of the writer is to move units, that is the path to take.

I do not get the feeling that St-Pierre's goal was to fleece his fans in that manner. There's much more to this book than a straight-line narrative about how St-Pierre went from birth to UFC champion.

St-Pierre took some heat in the days leading up to UFC 158, when he revealed that he does not man his own twitter account. There is no doubt that some will doubt that he wrote The Way of the Fight on his own. He did not.

St-Pierre readily admits that fact early in the book. St-Pierre had help in writing this book, just like he has help when he trains for his fights and deals with any aspect of his life. St-Pierre says he hires to his weaknesses, hoping to learn from the experts with which he surrounds himself. Those experts include Firas Zahabi, John Danaher and Kristof Midoux.

I mention these three individuals specifically because they are not only a huge part of St-Pierre's life, but also of The Way of the Fight. The book is broken down into five specific sections. Those sections are: "Mother," "Mentor," "Master," "Maven" and "Conscience."

Each of these sections focuses on a specific piece of Georges St-Pierre's story. Interspersed throughout the sections are recollections from the important individuals who shaped that portion of his St-Pierre's life.

"Mother" looks at a young St-Pierre, a "reject" who was bullied, a young man who learns to win through losing. The highlight of this section is when St-Pierre reveals why he is so interested in dinosaurs and then segues to comparing Royce Gracie's early UFC performance to that of a cockroach. It is an odd analogy, but it works.

The second section of the book, "Mentor," focuses on the man who began to shape St-Pierre into a mixed martial artist, Kristof Midoux. The story of how the two met and the progression of their relationship is interesting and definitely not your everyday tale of mentoring, as it takes the phrase "tough love" to another level.

What really becomes clear in this section is just how badly St-Pierre wanted to grow and be the best, and how his journey toward that goal began.

The next step on that journey was working with the man he writes about in the "Maven" section, John Danaher. If you have seen a St-Pierre fight, odds are you have seen Danaher. He is the serious-looking gentlemen who always seems to be clad in a rash guard.

Danaher is also recognized as one of the best minds in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Early in the section, Danaher reflects on how there was nothing remarkable about St-Pierre when he first arrived to train at Renzo Gracie's in New York City.

This may be the most revealing section. Danaher is blunt in his assessment of St-Pierre, proclaiming him to be a "good, but not great athlete" and then going on to detail exactly what it is that does make St-Pierre great.

The fourth section, "Maven" focuses on the man who most people associate with St-Pierre, trainer Firas Zihabi. Zihabi offers a different take on St-Pierre, and it is a comparison I've never heard anyone use: Zihabi compares the man who many feel is the best welterweight to ever fight in the UFC to an ant.

Zihabi writes about ants/St-Pierre, "They thrive in every ecosystem, they can modify almost any habitat and adjust it to their ultimate goal, they can tap into any resources they can find and they can definitely defend themselves." It is strange, but also somehow perfect.

The final section, "Conscience," focuses more on a behind-the-scenes look at the life of St-Pierre and is based around his manager and friend Rodolphe Beaulieu. This section was written between the Carlos Condit and Nick Diaz fights and takes a look at the life that St-Pierre lives as one of the most well-known fighters in the game.

Yes, there are tales from St-Pierre's fights included in The Way of the Fight and there are many pieces of biographical information that give some insight into one of the most media-savvy fighters in the game today, but if you are looking for a straight autobiography or profile piece, this is not that book.

In case you are confused by that: That is a good thing. The Way of the Fight delivers a great deal more than a book written in that manner could. It is part biography, part self-help, part philosophy. It is a book that, read in the right manner, teaches more than it tells.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An honest look inside a champion's mind and a MUST READ for anyone journeying the path of SELF invention and REinvention. 23 avril 2013
Par Raghee Horner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I do train MMA but that's not why I order GSP's book. I am a woman, a currency trader, and an author. This book is a revealing look into an elite athlete who admits to not having the best genetics, the advantage of money early on, or exceptional natural ability on his side - it's all the more interesting how GSP BUILT HIMSELF into the best MMA fighter and athlete in the UFC, arguably ever.

I think people do not appreciate the routine & sacrifices; they are not willing to pay the PRICE and that's partly what I came away with: Do the work, day after day, and then success is no accident. Tried and true.

I may not be the typical reader for this book but I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys biographies. TO limit this read to the fight fan is really not doing this book any justice.

Of course fans of MMA will enjoy this book as it also plays out like a history of GSP's fights and growth - and that's entertaining for sure.

It's an enjoyable read. The way GSP has organized the book is amazing (he breaks his story in five major parts/people that have shaped him) and it begs the reader in many ways to consider doing the same as GSP shares his self-examination after his knee injury.

Too many athletes don't get specific about their routines, mental game, and team and offer only fluff and generalities of their success. THIS is not the case with "The Way of the Fight". I am recommending it to my trader/students in the same way I recommend the "Art of War" to gain an edge in the psychology of winning and the introspection and strategy that's required.

GSP also dives into specific events that shaped him - again - finding ways for even the difficulties to make him better. It's the "inner questions" that GSP shares that make this book remarkable.

This book could easily be a self-help best-seller for athletes, business people, MMA, and Crossfit.

Highly recommended, great book. Part philosophy, part instruction, part fight game, all GSP.

From bullied child to fighting machine, this is a fascinating chronicle of the life and philosophy of our Canadian UFC champion! This book offered a glimpse into the pain and triumph and gruelling physical and mental demands of staying at the pinnacle of this brutal sport.

Fans will love it and competitive athletes will identify with it; but it's also an excellent and inspiring read for anyone who wants to develop mental toughness and excel in any area of life. Highly recommend.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Enjoyable and Insightful Read 16 septembre 2013
Par SilvaSurfa - Publié sur Amazon.com

That GSP is a great fighter and champion is indisputable, and so I expected the solid insight about training and fighting. But it was also very cool to read about the "life lessons", too...kind of unexpected and in retrospect, I think that's going to be the biggest takeaway for me. The different perspectives from those close to him (family, teachers/coaches, etc.) was also unique. MMA -- and professional athletics in general for that matter -- could use ALOT more athletes and champions who bring humility, respect and responsibility to the sport, and this book is a great example of that with GSP. I respect him now more than ever, not only as the best fighter in his class, but because he's truly a "champion" outside the cage as well. Great book.

I try to read as many good books as possible, there are some that are so good that you cannot put them down. And then there are other books that you force yourself to put down so that you do not finish them too fast! The Way of the Fight is that kind of book. From cover to cover this book is solid and will drive you to re-discover the passion and edge that turned you from a fearful bystander as a youth to the leader that you are (or think you are) today. If, with the passing years, you have lost touch with energy and desire that used to get you up at 4:30am to practice shooting drills in high school, this book will help you find it..... trust me. This book is bigger than GSP,the world champ, and that was his objective. Mission Accomplished!
