Book Description

May 15 2012
The book that you are considering buying is nothing short of a VIP Pass to Enlightenment, written by the UFC's most infamous and feared destroyer of men—Chael P. Sonnen.

Backwoodsmen and unlearned folk call him the Walking Thesaurus. His contemporaries have bestowed upon him the title Sir Sonnen. And those dwelling in the forgotten, forlorn jungles south of the equator reverently refer to him as filho da puta, a term Sonnen personally deciphered using his mastery of linguistics. It means, simply, "the Great and Humble Bearer of Knowledge."

In the coming pages, Sonnen's commentary and tales of heroic adventure will initiate you into the world of superhuman greatness. Allow him to carry you like a frail damsel through the world of professional mixed martial arts as he cuts weight, deals with moronic cornermen, expresses his disdain for focus mitts and punching in general, gets his face rearranged, and finds support and encouragement from fans. Permit him to cleanse your mind's palate and teach you the truth about history, politics, endangered species, cinema, terrorists, music, particle accelerators, and his plans for creating a Chaelocracy, which translates as "a Better Earth." Shower him with praise as he takes you into his manly mitts like a lump of clay and reshapes you in his own likeness.

Like all men of myth and legend, Sonnen strives for the betterment of the human race. Prometheus brought us fire; Dana White brought us the modern-day gladiator; and Chael P. Sonnen now brings us the step-by-step guide to being a great human being and patriot.

Purchase this book; learn how the world really works from the perspective of a man who has been face-to-face with presidents, wardens, dignitaries, judges, kings and queens, and athletic commissions; and find out if you have what it takes to awaken from your progressive nightmare.

There is no better day to stop being you and start trying to be Chael P. Sonnen. The time has come for The Voice of Reason.

Chael Sonnen is the best trash-talker in all of sports.

I've never seen anything like it. He's the best thing since Muhammad Ali

"Over the course of the last few years Chael Sonnen has become one of the most divisive figures in mixed martial arts. The outspoken middleweight is beloved by some and reviled by others, to find an MMA fan without an opinion on Sonnen is virtually impossible…For those that are already fans of Sonnen this book will be a must read. For those that, shall we say, are less than enamored by Mr. Sonnen, this book will provide a glimpse below the surface, exposing the reader to a man that is much more than the one he presents when he is standing in front of a camera with a microphone in his hand."—BleacherReport.com

About the Author

CHAEL SONNEN is a mixed martial arts superstar, a compassionate Republican, a volunteer coach, and a former politician. He's a sociology graduate from the University of Oregon, where his relentless fighting style earned him numerous wrestling awards. Sonnen's brilliant, incisive, and unique viewpoints have made him a favorite of fans, fellow athletes, and lazy journalists. In his spare time, Sonnen tinkers with the particle accelerator he built in his basement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome. June 21 2012
By Stinger
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I finished this book in 2days. I thought it would be another fighter biography. It was not. There are maybe two chapters about Chael in mma and growing up, they are epic, but from what Chael says there is not much to tell. I have been waiting for a real pro fighter of this caliber to finally come out and say this. He fights because he is an athlete and there is not much else to do. Finally a fighter without daddy issues or "grew up in the wrong part of town". Some hate Sonnen, some love him, but one thing is for sure, his views are what everyone is thinking and are just too damn scared to say. Chael is a mastermind and a brilliant author. I stumbled on this book looking for the fighter bio. It was not what I expected but even better than what I was looking for. You will not be disappointed by this book. It is an easy read (for Chaels uneducated fans) and tackles more pop culture and political views than anything else. The only thing I have to disagree with is his chapter about the Godfather movies. Come on Chael, read the book, it will poke holes in all your theories! Other than that great book, buy it you won't be disappointed.

Other than just being very funny, Chael is very intelligent and entertaining. If you are a fan get this book, probably not for people who are not fans of Chael or MMA.

Mr. Sonnen articulates his opinions in a clear and concise manner and backs them up. If you need speaking notes to deal with the leftist progressive ivory tower crowd, this book is invaluable. Also an entertaining read. Well done!
