Default Thoughts on Got Fight by Forrest Griffin

Just finished reading Forrest's book and have to admit I was pretty disappointed. I have read just about every other fighters book and found them at least somewhat interesting. Forrest's was basically mindless drivel. I know he was intentionally trying to write a book different than other fighters MMA biographical stories but this was ridiculous. I think it would have been a whole lot better if he had just stayed with the story of his MMA career. Anyone else read it yet?

I read "Got Fight" and thought it was great. It was a bunch of smaller stories and whatever seemed to be on his mind, but it was pretty hilarious to me. Maybe I'm just into a different type of entertainment. I like the mindless, simple humor.

well some days i just love mindless drivel while other days i appreciate a more poignant literary masterpiece that gives you insight into the authors brilliance...well i thoroughly enjoyed half the book and was repulsed by the other half only because it took me two days to read the thing.
