The inspirational memoir from the world's most dominant athlete
Winner of Cross Sports Book Awards International Autobiography of the Year 2016.
"The fact is, Ronda Rousey could punch you in the face any time she wanted, and she has completely created her own life and she's having an incredible career that most of us could only dream of and she doesn't give a s**t what you think. And that point of view is really, really threatening to certain people, especially when it comes in the form of a woman, because to a man, a woman not caring what you think means that all your power is gone. You can't control her anymore." Lena Dunham "The kick ass hero we've been waiting for. Whether you're into sports or not, you need to know about Ronda Rousey" Elle "The world's most dominant athlete" Sports Illustrated "Ronda Rousey might kick my ass" -- Mike Tyson "[Ronda Rousey's] fights, 3 amateur and 11 pro, with not a single loss among them, tend to end in less than 60 seconds. At the age of 28, she has in 4 years become the most dominant mixed-martial-arts fighter in the sport's history and was recently named "the most dominant athlete alive," beating out names like LeBron and Mayweather. On the fight scene, there's never, ever really been anyone quite like her" Rolling Stone
