Summary: Not so Ultimate Muay Thai
Comment: This book was too low on detail. Gives very little instruction on HOW to perform moves and the photos are no help at all. While it does give a good background on muay thai history and gives an excellent vocabulary for the moves, I just felt that it was not very helpful for touching up my technique or learning from. If you're looking to learn HOW to do muay thai, I recommend NOT buying this book - you'll be as disappointed as I was.

Summary: easy to understand
Comment: I have previous experience in thai boxing but this book taught me quite a few things to better my performance. It teaches all of the basics such as boxing,elbows,knees,and kicking. When you get right down to it ..its the basics that win the fight not the flashy stuff. The best part about this book is that it comes with a 3 month training regime that if fllowed exactly as it says will make you a dangerous person. The only thing that i felt was incomplete was the "self protection" chapter..not that it was fake or anything its just that it emphasizes that you do not finish off your opponent ......but other than that the chapter is still amazing. Just remember that there is no room for mercy or sportsmanship on the street.

Summary: EXCELLENT BOOK !
Comment: Having read more than my fair share of books on Muay Thai over the years I can honestly say this is one of the best. At last someone who knows what he is talking about! There's even a chapter on clinchwork. Finally a breath of fresh air hits the Thai Boxing scene. The book is only 160 pages but every page is filled with modern up to date techniques.
