    Beyond the Lion's Den (Paperback)
    by Ken Shamrock, Erich Krauss

    Just saw it at barnes & noble, must say I'm tempted to buy it. Part of the book is an instructional but as I saw a lot of it is biography and untold stories that weren't in inside the lion's den, the first book.
    And please if you have something meaningful to contribute do so, but don't bash the fighter (He sucks, his book sucks etc.)

    its hard to review books, especially instructional ones. because what people thinks works for someone, might not work for someone else. As apposed to the other info in the book, it could be boring as hell to one person, and exciting and fascinating to another.

    I dont know what to tell you *yawn*

    I think my instructor has that book but I'm not 100% positive. All I know is that he has one of them.

    I would buy it if it meant that he would stop making movies like Scarecrow Gone Wild. JK hahaha

    Actually, I would buy it just because of who he is and what he has seen in this sport. Eventhough I'm not a fan of his, I recognize that he truly is a legend in the game and has been in there with the best.

    I haven't seen Frank's movie yet, is that actually out?. It's got an all-star cast Don Frye, Gene LeBell, Randy Couture, Pam Anderson, Gary Busey, Bruce Buffer, and Tom Sizemore.

    I actually bought Scarecrow Gone Wild, pretty hilarious.

    I only have the first one, not the new one. Inside The Lion's Den was a pretty decent read, but he seems to think of himself in his own certain way. I might buy his new one soon.
