* Reviews *Series Review: MMA: Mixed Martial Arts
"It isn't often that a series 'jumps off the cart', but this Mixed Martial Arts series from Rosen dispels the 'boring nonfiction' stigma ... Each slim volume provides basic information and profiles stars of the sport. Here's the cool part: step-by-step photographs guide readers through basic moves, many with such intriguing names as: 'guillotine', and 'monk choke'. The back matter includes a glossary, more information, further reading, and an index. This is a book that begs to be experienced!"
