Ronda Rousey, the Olympic medalist in judo, reigning UFC women's bantamweight champion, and new Hollywood action hero, charts her difficult path to glory. Rousey's account of the toughest fights of her life -- in and outside the Octagon -- reveals the painful loss of her father when she was eight years old, the intensity of her judo training, her battles with love, her meteoric rise to fame, the secret behind her undefeated UFC record, and what it takes to become the toughest woman on Earth. Rousey shares hard-won lessons on how to be the best at what you do, including how to find fulfillment in the sacrifices, how to turn limitations into opportunities, and how to be the best on your worst day.

She is an inspiration. I could not relate to ALL her experiences, but she sets a good example for those that have been "beaten up" in life and need a reason to go on.

Interesting to learn the details of her childhood, training routine, things that go on in the octagon (other fighters cheating), her long standing feud with Miesha Tate, bad boyfriends, etc.

If you are a fan of Rousey or want to know about the dedication necessary to be the best in the world at what you do, this is at the very least an inside look at the life of a woman who almost literally stops at nothing to be the best while still retaining her youthfulness. I enjoyed reading it. It reminded me a lot of the Daniel Bryan book that I finished earlier this year; not particularly groundbreaking in its delivery but very insightful in regards to its subject.

I remember the first time I saw Ronda Rousey fight. She seemed to walk around with her nose in the air and I instantly hated her. However, after watching her consistently dominate the cage, I couldn't help but be a fan. She is an AMAZING fighter, revolutionizing Judo in MMA. This autobiography cemented my belief that she's earned everything that she's gotten following her success. She's not being pompous or arrogant, she's just proud of herself. More than anything, she's extremely determined to keep looking forward and keep pushing herself, and to focus only on the wins-to-come and not her past wins. This book was incredibly inspirational to me and has a wonderful message of perseverance. You don't have to know much at all about fighting to enjoy this book.

Wow. This girl is on fire. An amazing story. She has a ton of experience in just a short time. Her sports/life analogies are spot on and important for all of us especially in this day and age. Perhaps a book to read by every girl in high school? rating - 9 out of 10 - I wish there were more photos of her family, and some of her judo days as a teenager. Hope she steers clear of Hope Solo type controversy - we love to kick people when they are down. Question - was her mom a villain or a tough love life coach for a future champion? Those yanks have that "bully to win" type culture. Ronda rocks!

I had a lot of respect for Ronda Rousey before I read this book.

All she does is talk about what tragedies occured in her life from being a baby to adult relationships.

What a fell sorry me book & a waste of paper this was!

Fighting is not my thing at all. Curious about people who fight, she seemed like a pretty straightforward person to read about and I'm glad I did! What an interesting & intriguing memoir into the life of a true champion. She forever describes her drive, which quite frankly was exhausting, but exhilarating at the same time. I know, knew, nothing about the sport before. Not sure how one who is into fighting would take this but I thought it was GREAT and I recommend reading it if you're a curious sort or need some motivation. She's an amazing woman and human being.
