    Mr King has written a deep and engrossing book on what it really takes to perform at your best both in the world of martial arts and, more importantly, in everyday life. The ideas and techniques presented within this book are the sort that can be implemented immediately to great effect, yet will still see you make new discoveries an improvements for years to come. There have been books written before that claim to relate the truths of martial arts to everyday life and everyday challenges. Though some of these provide entertaining and interesting personal reflections, the majority seek to take the phrases and maxims of greats, such as Mushashi and Sun Tzu, and look at how these would apply to your day-to-day life. While this is certainly an interesting pursuit, the reader of these titles is often left with another list of well-meaning principles without any real practical ideas for implementing them, or any real boost in their performance in their chosen field. Thankfully, this is not... More > one of those books! The real strength of this book is that, rather than rely on the says of the past, Mr King draws deeply on two very important areas: (1) his own personal experience of growing both his own martial arts ability and his global businesses; and, (2) his extensive research into the interplay of mind and body, and its role in achieving peak performance both within martial arts training and outside in the everyday world of jobs, relationships, and life. The meeting of these two areas is what provides the real gold in this book - a clear, practical way to approach any challenge or endeavour life may throw your way, and a way to live in harmony with your natural way of being. If you are after a light, feel-good book of quotes and simple interpretations, this is not the book for you. However, if you want to discover a repeatable, rewarding and fascinating method for peak performance in any area of your life, you will not only enjoy this book but keep returning to it for years to come.< Less

    A great read, and so much to come back to time and time again. This book should be read by everyone! Rodney King, my coach and Crazy Monkey Defense Founder, writes with so much passion and understanding, that the principles in this book can, and should, change your perspective on life, and start your journey to experiencing "Full Contact Living".

    It is safe to say that if you are looking for better performance or increasing your quality of life, this is one of the better suited books out there. King has managed to take some pretty advanced concepts and boil them down to easy-to-use guidelines to get going on the Full Contact lifestyle. As a trainer in the Crazy Monkey Defense Program, I have been exposed to several of the ideas before, but the way it is outlined in this book is some of Rodney King's best work. And I can attest to that the concepts I have worked on in my Martial Arts training have definitely helped me on and off the mats, and I am thrilled for the possibility of a lot more people getting access to these ideas. I will definitely re-read the book in the near future. Even though it can seem that the book is geared toward Martial Artists, what King writes is suited for anyone, and it is about how to live your life and improve performance in any circumstance and situation, and is a fantastic book to read. The... More > artwork is also beautiful, and really suits the theme of the book. I would recommend this book everyone, and if it were up to me, it would be obligatory reading for everyone training Martial Arts.< Less
