MEDIA REVIEWS
"There have been a lot of books written about combat sports by journalists and just as many written by fighters. Christopher Olech's The Fighter Within is the rare book by an author who is both, and you will gain more insight on the fight game and those in it from this book than anything I've read in a long time. I recommend this book to anyone wishing to learn what it truly takes to fight-in the ring, Octagon, or life." -Thomas Gerbasi, Editorial Director for the UFC
"Start reading it...don't wait!" -Jason Kelly, Rear Naked Choke Radio
"A wonderful ride that encompasses the true essence of martial arts. Olech beautifully relates the common man with the teachings and spirit of many of the sport's masters." -Joe Ferraro, host of UFC Central radio
"To make this 189-page book, author Chris Olech trained, traveled the world and interacted with loads of top-notch MMA fighters, including Rashad Evans, Fedor Emelianenko, Rick Franklin, and tons of others. This is an account of his journey - with a foreword by Bas Rutten." -Black Belt Magazine
"If you are fascinated by the MMA lifestyle and want to find out what makes good fighters tick, then read this book!" -Donovan Craig, Founding editor of Fight! magazine
"Chris has gone all over, trained with so many different fighters and he's documented all of his experiences...he has a great perspective." -The MMA Report podcast
"Chris has had a chance to talk to the most brilliant minds in combat sports." -John Ramdeen, The Fight Network
