Top critical review
Reviewed in the United States on August 21, 2009
Let's start with the obvious: the title is very misleading. This book is NOT about dirty boxing. It is a wrestling manual, with only a few pages dedicated to striking. The material presented is decent: control positions, set ups, and takedowns (most of them being single and double legs). No ground game and little striking. In many ways, it is similar to Randy Couture's book, but not quite as good. The photo and writing quality is on par with other Victory Belt books. One difference is that unlike other titles, this one does not open with a biographical section--perhaps because Lindland has few fans and popular curiosity about his life is next to none. Overall, it's ok, but not nearly as original or as informative as other Victory Belt books.
