4.0 von 5 Sternen Useful Background Piece
This book is divided into two sections. The first is a biography of Ken Shamrock, focusing primarily on his fighting career. Its tone is somewhat odd; on the one hand, it frequently reads as a very hero-worshippy accounting of Shamrock's accomplishments. On the other, the book is very honest about Shamrock's personal and professional shortcomings, including his often...

3.0 von 5 Sternen Shamrock is good - Gracie is better
I feel that this book serves it purpose quite well- it examines the mans life, and then serves as an instruction manual on Submission fighting. However, Shamrock is not that good!! He is not a proven fighter, and his style is severely lacking in depth and grace. For grace, look to the Gracies.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Useful Background Piece, 15. Mai 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Inside the Lion's Den: The Life and Submission Fighting System of Ken Shamrock (Taschenbuch)
This book is divided into two sections. The first is a biography of Ken Shamrock, focusing primarily on his fighting career. Its tone is somewhat odd; on the one hand, it frequently reads as a very hero-worshippy accounting of Shamrock's accomplishments. On the other, the book is very honest about Shamrock's personal and professional shortcomings, including his often delinquent childhood and his struggle to control a violent temper. The second section is a submission-primer. I believe this section is really only useful to those with some martial arts background already; novices will be lost as there is little information on transitions and other details needed to make the techniques work. However, it is a somewhat useful introduction. For those with the background, this section gives a glimpse at how the Lion's Den fighters train, and helps explain their success. Overall, this book is of value to anyone who is a fan of the UFC or Ken Shamrock.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Incredibly well-done book, 29. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Inside the Lion's Den: The Life and Submission Fighting System of Ken Shamrock (Taschenbuch)
I've been a long time fan of Ken Shamrock even from his first UFC apperances, and I only recently picked up this book. Being Ghost Written, I figured it would be a bit of a let-down, however I gave it a shot anyway, and all I can say..is wow. This is an incredible book. The first part, that covers Shamrock's life, from his beginnings and troubled youth, to his professional career as an Ultimate Fighting Champion, is incredibly well done. The second part, a guide to the use of several submission moves and the world of submission fighting, is a great indepth look at the fighting meathod. I am *really* suprised at this, it was much more then I expected. It's not one to pass up.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Inside the Lion's Den: The Life and Submission Fighting System of Ken Shamrock (Taschenbuch)
This book is a fast read and pretty interesting for NHB fans. It describes how Shamrock grew up, worked as a bouncer at 19, won 2 or 3 toughman contests and went on to be a submissions and NHB champion. The second part of the book is better, which describes the training the Lion's Den fighters must go through.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Inside the Lion's Den: The Life and Submission Fighting System of Ken Shamrock (Taschenbuch)
One cannot fathom exactly how horrifying it must be just before you enter the octagon, and still fewer can actually judge what goes on in the ring. Except those who were in the fight. Anyone who for a moment questions Shamrock's decision, and says he isn't qualified to make that claim, I recommend they first check their qualification. Many people tell me this book was merely for Shamrock to point out how he was cheated, I think this book is great and first hand recollection of the actual events in the UFC.
It must be pointed out that Shamrock does tell an accurate and fair story about his opponents. Take for example Oleg Taktarov, who Ken openly compliments in his description of him. And few can say that they had Gracie even near defeat, save Kino and Shamrock. Perhaps Detroit laws did prevent Shamrock from dessimating Severn, perhaps they did not; nevertheless Shamrock is NOT a whiner, and his book is NOT a collection of Shamrock's own subjective commentaries, rather the book is an informative guide to the life of Shamrock, and the amazingly effective shootfighting tactics he explains in the latter portion of the book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Shamrock: The Fighter, The Man, The Author, 24. März 2000

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Inside the Lion's Den: The Life and Submission Fighting System of Ken Shamrock (Taschenbuch)
As a recent fan of the fighting world, I was not sure what I expect from this book. What I discovered was a well-written book that told a wonderful true life story. The format is delightful--one half about Shamrock's private life with his family that few seem to know existed and a second half that details and explains Shamrock's unique fighting style. A must read for the new fan or one who is learning about this style of combat and I believe one that would be highly enhoyable to anyone who has ever enjoyed a Super fight match. You gotta get it...

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Inside the Lion's Den: The Life and Submission Fighting System of Ken Shamrock (Taschenbuch)
While I enjoy true stories and respect and admire what Ken Shamrock has accomplished in his life and career, he should have chosen a more neutral person to write his story. While there is no question Shamrock is one of the greatest fighters in the world today, the author paints an unfair picture of some of the opponents Ken has faced. Bottom line: Royce Gracie beat Shamrock once and Shamrock never defeated Royce. They did fight to a draw in their second bout, but Shamrock never won a match against Gracie. Yet the author describes Gracie as going to great lengths to avoid facing Ken. Remember, Gracie was 178 lbs and Shamrock was around 215-220. The author also unfairly badmouths Dan Severn. I saw the second superfight between the two, and anyone who says Severn unfairly won, is kidding themselves. Severn escaped the mount and reversed positions which is rarely done in a real fight. The author complains that Detroit laws prevented Shamrock from going all out, and Severn violated the laws to win. FALSE! Ken shamrock NEVER won a UFC tournament and Severn won 2. Shamrock won Superfights but never won a 3 fight tournament. I think this author is a whiner, and reading this book, one gets the impression Shamrock whines also. I hope that is not the case. Too bad such an inspiring story was written by such a louse. Get this book and ignore the authors implicit tones. Enjoy Shamrock's story as it truly is inspiring.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful Insight Into The Man Personally & Professionally, 11. Februar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Inside the Lion's Den: The Life and Submission Fighting System of Ken Shamrock (Taschenbuch)
This book will not only intrigue fans of all types of fighting styles that Ken Shamrock has competed in, it will also serve as a source of motivation and inspiration for all.
The book is creatively and effectively divided into two parts. The first half is ghost written, or at least co-authored, and chronicles Ken's life. It is a brief, yet very thorough and captivating life story.
The second half is a nuts and bolts introduction to all aspects of competing in mixed martial arts - from eating to strength training to technique.
"Inside The Lion's Den" is more than just a book about a tough guy who won some fighting contests and became a pro wrestler. "Inside The Lion's Den" delves deep into the trials and tribulations that chronicle Ken's awkward upbringing. His childhood was far from, "The Cosby Show" yet it is explained in a way that is quite unlike most biographies of high profile stars that claim of such horrible childhood life.
Too often are we subjected to a "Where Are They Now" documentary by some celebrity telling us that they were mentally abused, or how their horribly painful past forced them into a drug plagued life. Ken Shamrock doesn't mirror this all to common pattern. He simply tells about his life - and it doesn't appear to be one that most of us would have wanted at times.
The second half of the book can, and will, put any reader who isn't a professional athlete or combatant into shape. One will be surprised at the amount of inside information that Shamrock shares. I've met many mixed martial artists and several of them couldn't complete the training regimen that is covered here.
Some have belittled Shamrock for having the book co-authored, but that is a very unfair criticism. Ken Shamrock is a master fighter - an athlete - a competitor. He has a great story to share with us. Does any of that make him qualified to transfer that to paper and deliver it in a manner that is entertaining and interesting? No.
That is no disrespect to Ken. He is a master at what he does. And he is very smart for having a co-author. I would assume that Ken, and most of you, have an accountant prepare your taxes. We all bring in experts to handle tasks for us. There is no shame in that.
Professional wrestlers have amazing stories to tell and they are finally being shared with us all.
I am proud to say that I have been given the opportunity to work with wrestling legend, Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka on his biography and a documentary. I hope that when the book is available through Amazon.com, many of you will come and review it. And in the interim, while it is being written, let me know what you would like covered in the book that is tentatively being titled, "Tales From The Top Of The Cage."

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book, 14. Januar 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Inside the Lion's Den: The Life and Submission Fighting System of Ken Shamrock (Taschenbuch)
I just wanted to say that I think this is a great book and a must buy for both Ken Shamrock and mixed martial arts fans. Please do not believe the hype from some of the other reviews stating that the book is unduly biased. That simply is not true. Mr. Shamrock openly reveals his mistakes in his losses and does not ridicule or down grade any opponent, ie: he speaks well of the Gracies, explains what caused the personal frictions between him and Dan Severn. Many times people confuse confidence with cockiness, as the great Muhammad Ali used to say, "It ain't braggin if you can do it!" Being the first King of Pancrase, and the first Superfight Champion, Ken Shamrock was the best mixed martial artist in the world; he has definitely proven that he can do what he says. Yes Ken Shamrock is confident, but he is not arrogant. Many interesting insights you'll learn about his personal life, the politics of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, his fighting style, and the Lion's Den. Buy it if you're a fan of Ken Shamrock!

I highly recommend this book to any UFC, Pancrase, or Wrestling fans. This book gives an insightful look into Ken Shamrock's troubled past. He tells about the way he overcame adversity to become the best No-Holds-Barred fighter in the world. Well written and very interesting.
