excellent listen

Brilliant as expected, every single sentence hits home, every philosophy on the fighters mindset, or even if you are trying to get ahead in life in any other way is just correct!

Find quotes from Cus instead and avoid this book.

The book was mediocre up until the end, where I have one question. Why the hell does Conor McGregor have a chapter in a Cus D'Amato book? The fact that this author dedicated the end to McGregor to talk about how great he is, is pathetic. The final chapter of this toilet paper on tape, is a slap to the face of Cus D'Amato.

Basically an empty book

There aren't even stories in this, it's literally just a 40 minute long motivational speech from a guy that occasionally quotes Cus.

Quotes Wikipedia in the first 10 min as source

I was already feeling very skeptical About the quality of this audiobook and then the author quoted Wikipedia in the first 10 min. At that point I turned it off. Seems like the author had the best intentions but it is just not well written.

A hand picked book of information

Not what you think it is. This book is just a hand picked selection of information from Cus D’amato that is semi flushed out. The book ends with UFC references and mind set to tie everything together.

I would give this book 10 stars if I could

I love books that get right to the point. This one is full of just what you need to know. It was inspirational and useful for me in everyday life and in martial arts. The narrator was perfect.
