Well, I have been promised I'd be mentioned in the next book. So clearly I'm biased!
But no honestly, this was a wonderful read! I just absolutely loved it, and this was the reason I picked up kick boxing! Oh and also Michael, who decided he would be brave enough to teach Kiki with two left foot kick boxing!

Freaking Awesome

Best book that I have read in awhile. The author is a true talent, his writing takes you inside of his soul He is a Muay Thai boxer and his descriptions of how he trained for a fight and the mental aspects were fascinating But the best parts were when he was meeting new people, and going for adventures. And the parts where he talks about how he views materialism and how technology is pulling us all apart. Great book! Did not want it to end.

Interesting take on life and Muay Thai boxing

Exciting read on Muay Thai and the adventures of an Australian spending some quality time fighting in Chiang Mai. Thank you.

An interesting and inspiring read from an Australian martial artist who goes to Thailand for a month to have adventures and to fight in a professional muay thai fight against a local fighter. The book doesn't focus much on thai society or culture, but it focuses on the backpacking adventures and life philosophical thoughts of the author. And also it offers interesting insight to the spiritual side and instinctive sight of martial arts and fighting sports.

The book reminded of Paulo Coelho's

I enjoyed the book overall. Michael is a good storyteller and his insights about Muay Thai were great. Oftentimes though, it seemed like he just descended into deep, philosophical rambling, sometimes out of absolutely nowhere. Overall, I'd recommend it if you're interested in Thailand, traveling, or Muay Thai.

An absolutely fantastic read. Should be required reading for all young men. I hope the author writes more of the same
