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.

A book written about YouTube videos

Just watch the YouTube videos. I was honestly waiting for a Joe Rogan portion, lame.

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.

Wonderful audible book

Amazing book about the power of consistency and intentionality for life. The mind is the 🔑 to not only achieving goals but sticking to them. This book is a manual of self control over acting off of emotions, truly a keeper, thanks Cus 🙌 your will to change and mold the mind to do anything is unmatched even in your passing your still "Breathing" on us all to push and never QUIT💪

huh?

it didn't make sense why the last chapter was spent praising Conor McGregor chapters were only a minute long maybe one of them was 6 minutes long but I'm not complaining for 2 bucks.

You get what you pay for

If you love Cus like I do, it's a pretty decent listen considering the price and length. If you want to learn about Cus, there aren't cheaper ways aside from Wikipedia. So... yeah, check it out.

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!

D'Amato tells us nothing new

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Yes More depth and scope is needed on the person in question. Some actual tips on training and preparation for fights would have been handy.

What could R. Shaw have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Get some viable information on D' Amato 's training tips, his early life and boyhood. How did he get into boxing training and why did he enjoy training boxers?

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Jim D. Johnston?

Mike Tyson.

If this book were a film would you go see it?

Never.
