Reviewer: Biswa (Wilmington, Deleware)

This is a very good collection of quotes that can motivate and inspire. It looks like a lot of research and fact finding have gone into creating this master piece. Enjoyed reading it. This can be read at anytime by opening a random page.

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Must have book for serious martial artist!
Reviewer: Andrew Z. (Rumson, New Jersey)

Warrior Wisdom is the book I've been waiting for. It contains in a nutshell the wisdom of the greatest quotes from the greatest warriors. Martial Arts is not just about physical activity. The intellectual or spiritual part is critical as well. The book Warrior Wisdom can help fill that intellectual void in the martial arts. This makes one a complete martial artist.

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Warrior ethos
Reviewer: James H. (Carencro, Louisiana)

If you're like me and have always appreciated military history and studying warrior ethos in general, this book is a "must have". Even though I already own editions with many of the quotes in them (original sources), it's nice to have them collected in one volume. In addition, Sammy Franco has organized them into different sections such as "Courage & Fear" and (my favorite) "Wisdom, Faith & Belief". If you're a novice at this type of wisdom you'll be overwhelmed with the sheer amount of text that Franco has collected. Well worth the money.

Mr. Franco has collected the words of history's most brave and inspiring leaders from across time.

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 The book that keeps on giving!
Reviewer: Jason Richards (Pensacola, Florida)

I have purchased books from all different styles. I don't hold back punches and believe that one of the strengths of amazon is the review section! Having said that, this is one of my favorite books! This is a book that you will be able to read in many different moods and for many different reasons. It is a great read for those days when you need motivation to train, a little pick me up, some words to put life in perspective, or just to learn from warriors who have been there and done that! It is also a book that you will be able to get great quotes from when giving presentations, talking to people at the bar, or when writing papers of your own! Sammy has done the leg work to get all of this stuff organized, categorized, and centralized for your reading pleasure! I'm stoked to have this book and you will be too!

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 The Title Says It All!
Reviewer: everett sparks (Chesterfiled, Virginia)

Warrior Wisdom is about being inspired from Warriors, not run of the mill average people. Not only a nice reference book but, a book that is priceless to fellow warriors and those inspiring to be warriors. A book I will read over and over again.

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Timeless advice for today's martial artists and leaders
Reviewer: Kevin H. (Battle Creek, Michigan)

This book should be on the shelf of every true martial artist, leader or manager. In today's society, we are often bombarded with little quips and soundbites that have no real meaning. This book is filled with quotes and ideas from various great leaders throughout history. The substance of these quotes is such that you should spend time going over the true meaning of what was said and how it applies to you and your life.

Reviewer: Ken (Niagara Falls, New York)

Each week I post one of the quotes in this book at my workout area. It helps me workout harder and stay focused. An Excellent book of Wisdom to live by for any modern day warrior.

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 The Warriors way of thinking
Reviewer: Steven Michael Smith (Salem, Oregon)

For the past 4 years, when I want to know about REAL street defense for today's world of violence, I go to Franco! He surprised me with this book because most so called "self defense" instructors don't write about anything else besides ME ME ME. This book is something that you would expect from a person with a military career. Again, Mr. Franco, Thank You!

 

5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 This book is fantastic. Another home-run from CFA.
Reviewer: Zeker (Bay Area, California)

It can take years to a lifetime, to sum up an idea and/or concept in a simple sentence or phrase; Ones that cover combat and warrior-ship… I have not come across a book that contains them. Until now. Warrior Wisdom has quotes from people that I have never known about, and most likely would of never come across. Their wisdom would of been lost to me. I'm so glad I got this book. To say this book is great, would be an understatement. It's one of those books you can either read from cover to cover, or randomly flip to different pages. The kind of quotes you can ponder it for some time. It also gives great discussion topics to bring up with your Self Defense training buddies. You can just keep going back to these kind of quotes and find new understandings of them, new applications with them. Views into a world that you have not spent a lifetime to understand, like the people that authored them have. And there are a plethora of these jewels waiting in this book. Man, this book is awesome.

Reviewer: Alexandre Ceccato (villeurbanne rhone alpes, France)

I have found inspiration in every page of this book, its really a must have, and the first book who show what the mental component of the CFA, particularly philosophy, is. This made Contemporary Fighting Arts a very complete system.

Reviewer: Harry Dunton (Mt. Airy, Maryland)

After spending 4 hours shipping this book out on Friday, I got home and got to read my own copy. I just have to say I love this book. Unlike Sammy's other books, this is a book that you can just sit down and enjoy. No hard workouts, just great information. It is amazing at all the great quotes that he found. The thought provoking quotes are enough to get one thinking for days. Some are profound, some are intriguing, and others just make you go wow. To look into the mind of some of the greatest warriors and leaders in history is truly a wonderful experience. I love this book and can't wait to keep reading.
