I bought this book because I wanted to learn what makes Anderson so great. The book is a fantastic buy if you are into MMA striking techniques or an Anderson Silva fan. The book has a great introduction detailing his rise through small circuits to becoming the Middle Weight Champion. He teaches you, with fantastic pictures that details the movements and easy to understand instructions on what to do. He covers everything with a learning curve that goes from basic (e.g. movement) to complex (e.g. movements + strikes). This is a great instruction manual.
