Summary: A good read but not too fancy
Comment: This book is written well and instruction is laid out simply, however it is lacking a little in visual aid. Photos are black and white and feature two young brothers that look pretty identical. It can be difficult to see who is doing the described move in some areas of the book.
Other than that, the author has a well-expressed voice, offers a little of Muay Thai history (but not too much), and provides adequate instruction for all of the moves NEEDED to get into a Muay Thai pit.
*Be informed that this book focuses on technique and is somewhat short on drills and training exercises.

Summary: Krauss a great teacher
Comment: Comparing both Krauss's JiuJitsu Unleashed to this book is like comparing apples and oranges. There is no correlation as they are altogether different disciplines. This was the first martial arts instructional book I have read on the art of striking, and I found it to be very edifying. The art of Mui Thai is a lot more versatile and practical than any other striking combat discipline, so I found Krauss's approach and exposition on the tradition of Mui Thai to be greatly detailed and refreshing. He gives a rich background of every day Mui Thai fighter in Thailand and the rigorous training they're subjected to. He covers all facets of training, even giving recommendations on which equiptment to use, such as pads and such that will enhance your experience. This book acquaints us to the basics of Mui Thai, foot movements and stances. Overall a great book.

Summary: Krauss Does It Again!
Comment: Erich Krauss has got to be the best author of martial arts instructionals going today. This is clearly the definitive book on Muay Thai kickboxing, and I think it's even better than his outstanding book on jiu-jitsu, Jiu-Jitsu Unleashed (w/ Eddie Bravo). If you are someone who wants to learn everything there is to know about this exciting sport, look no further than this book!
