    One thought on “Death Clutch: My Story of Determination, Domination, and Survival”

    1. I'm sure Heath Herring doesn't like me, either after all, I broke his face.I've read a lot of biographies written by professional wrestlers. They all talk about the passion it takes to be the best, the crowning achievements of their careers, their most memorable feuds and experiences. Lesnar, who spent 2 years at the top of the WWE mountain, spoke of how it was just "a job" that helped him pay off his student loans and make some money. That blew me away! He spoke to the fact that most guys spen [...]

    2. I swear to Odin, this is the very first time I felt cheated out of my money after reading a "book".Now I am going to be a bitter little troll in this review, so proceed at your own risk and feel free to tear me a new asshole if you disagree.First of all, when I got the book via mail, I thought I might have gotten a book sample or some kind of a pamphlet for the real book, because this tiny little thing couldn't be the autobiography of an accomplished NCAA, WWE and UFC champion. Oh, how wrong was [...]

    3. The book Death Clutch is about Brock Lesnar and his lifes jerney to be the best at anything he does. His life was full of road blocks. He went from having nothing as a child that lives on a farm to having everything and being the UFC world champion. What struck me the best about the book was how if he really wanted something he got it no matter how hard it was he got it. This book is not a part in a series so I cant read more of them. The lesson I learned from this book was that no matter how ha [...]

    4. If you are a big fan of Brock Lesnar, read this book. But, I'd be surprised if you finish it being a bigger fan of his. The ego and sense of entitlement that Lesnar has pretty much shown throughout his life is mind boggling. It especially comes out in his description of his time in WWE. He acts like because he was making big money for himself and the WWE, that he was entitled to be the champion at all times. Hey Brock, it's worked sports entertainment. The only reason you're on top is because th [...]

    5. Good read, although it made me wish he had written more about his WWE career. His thoughts and personal relations with certain names in the business. But Brock gives good reasoning as to why he doesn't. He didn't grow up loving WWE or dream of being the next Hulk Hogan. He was recruited into the business and was offered more money than he could refuse. It was what he was commited to at the time and he always strives to be that best at whatever he does. His WWE career was short and meteoric and h [...]

    6. My brother and his wife gave me this book for my birthday because I've been a huge Brock Lesnar fan for a long time and almost got them in trouble with their downstairs neighbor once during the Shane Carwin fight by jumping up and down when Brock survived the first round of the fight. There is literally nothing exciting about how I finished this book, though.For the longest time, I could honestly say that my favorite fighter is Brock Lesnar. I vividly remember hearing the stories of the 300 poun [...]

    7. I read the book Death Clutch by Brock Lesnar which is his Autobiography that he wrote. He wrote this to set the record straight about his life. Brock Lesnar was a former NCAA Champion in Division I wrestling, a WWE Superstar, and a UFC fighter. Brock grew up in South Dakota on a farm. He was a decent wrestler, never had a chance to get a scholarship to a DI school, so he went to community college. He won the Junior College National Championship in 1998, after that he went to Minnesota to wrestle [...]

    8. When people say,"Brock lesnar is the baddest dude alive" they aren't lying. In this book, he talks about all the sacrifices he made to become a national heavyweight champion, and the determination and hard work he had to put in in order to be the baddest "dude" on the planet. He starts off talking about his child hood and why he started wrestling, he talks about his high school career and his achievements through out that time. After that Brock goes into talking about the life of being a WWE sup [...]

    9. Being a wrestling fan, I'm always interested in finding out more about those I like, and even those I don't like. Brock Lesnar isn't one of my favorites. I find him a far too dangerous guy to be in a ring with, whether that means WWE or UFC. However, I heard a few things about him, and decided I give this a look to see what was fact and what his thoughts were on a great many things. Let me be clear, Brock Lesnar can come across as one of the biggest a-holes in the business. In his case though, I [...]

    10. What do you expect from a man who is protective of his life and family. This book is basically the only information he's willing to share, to anyone, about his life and all the crap he went through to get where he is today. I for one love him so it's not hard to believe that I enjoyed getting more information on his life But honestly, he's a meathead, what do you expect from someone who takes a beating to their body every day for money Not a lot of intellect there but a good resource for insight [...]

    11. This is an amazing bookif u r a fan of Brock Lesnar! Some ppl might find it gud me ppl not.If u looking for something particular then you might be disappointed. But despite that.s an amazing book.You can't expect much e it's not a fiction,Its an auto-biography.Some thing might excite you.me things don't.And read this oner things you don't knw about brock.d also WWE.

    12. Brock Lesnar is my idol and he has proven himself to be one of the best. He may not be a crossfitter, but he is a great power lifter and lots of people could learn a thing or two from him. He is a motivational man who puts his heart and soul into everything he does. Brock Lesnar is a freakishly strong athlete who stops at nothing. The key to success is working hard and to rise up above others. Brock proved that when he became the first NCAA Division 1 Heavyweight champion.

    13. As though you might find the attitude and words used in this book a bit cocky and arrogant on Brock Lesnar's behalf, it shows the determination, hardwork, discipline and commitment to perusing his dreamse book uses easy and understandable language for all and is a must for all WWE, wrestling or The Beast Incarnate Brock Lesnar himself.

    14. Lesnar is awesome wrestler and a Godly Man He is Christian and write this wonderful book which is for everyone.when he destroyed taker at WM 30 HE Become the first man in history to beat him at wm He is loving and gentle person

    15. The back cover and dust jacket cover warns you: Enjoy this book while it lasts. This is the one and only time that Brock Lesnar is going to share anything, no matter how basic on a personal level, with you. He also reiterates in both these few pages and in his recent ESPN interviews that Brock Lesnar is all about one thing: business. He is all about making the money and spending as much time with his family (whether in Minnesota or Canada) as possible. Lesnar has been a prize fighter since he wo [...]

    16. Memoir by a wrestler/MMA fighter? Better book than I expected. The most interesting parts focus on Lesner's rise through the legit wrestling ranks as an amateur. What exactly does a collegiate wrestler do after his competitive days are over? Lesner, unfortunately, comes off as a bit of an egotist, no doubt continuing in the WWE tradition of "shooting" (bragging and calling out his opponents/enemies).

    17. A few years out of date now, but this is a quick read and gives an over view of Brock's upbringing, college and professional endeavors.

    18. I was really looking forward Brock's book. I couple of days before it came out I saw the reviews, on how short or bad the book is. The book is shorter but does get to the point. The main thing about Brock is that he pretty much says what is on his mind in any interview he does. So if you are looking for new material about Brock you are not really going to find it in the book because he has already said it on an interview or on th internet. For WWE fans this book might be very disappointing becau [...]

    19. Not the best autobiography by a wrestler but certainly better than the hordes of badly-written, cheesy and pathetic WWE autobiographies around. What's different is that this is not just a WWE autobiography. It is the autobiography of a man who is, simply put, a professional fighter. WWE's immoral practices to fuck around comes into light and the Japan Pro Wrestling part was fun. The UFC part, I just skimmed over. Lesnar comes across as a straight-forward, no-nonsense man who is a consummate prof [...]

    20. I had a lot of respect for this man before I read this book. I don't know what I was looking for when I started reading it but I didn't really find anything either. A lot of the stories in this book are what you would have heard from a documentary or an interview on YouTube. I did enjoy learning more about his amateur wrestling career and finding out what he went through when he almost died as the UFC Champion. There is a lot of WWE hate in this book. I don't think it's on Ric Flairs coffee tabl [...]

    21. All autobiographies are biased. Expecting Lesnar's to be not, will be idiotic. That being said this is a story of a man who went after what he wanted with lot of grit and determination. Lot of people say he got everything on a platter (as far as his wwe is concerned). But the truth is he worked his ass off against all odds. He didn't get it on the platter, he earned it on the platter. He refused to compromise and settle down for something he thought he didn't deserve. I guess that's what makes h [...]

    22. This book is written in a sparse matter-of-fact fashion that fits Brock Lesnar's persona. Like a lot of celebrity biographies, this is incredibly light reading, but I have to say I enjoyed what was present in this brief book. We learn about Brock's time in the WWE, UFC, NCAA, as well as the fact that Brock is a bit of a romantic. Nothing earth shattering, but there are some interesting nuggets here and there. What I didn't expect was for the book to be motivational. This isn't a self-help book, [...]

    23. This book is not bad at all as athletic biographies go. It's much of what you might expect from this type of book, although Lesnar's point of view on certain people is different than what is often depicted in similar books, such as his distaste for Vince McMahon. His personality comes through quite clearly, and if you saw TUF on Spike TV, it's much the same. I can't say that I found him to be very likeable, but I imagine he would take that as a compliment. Nothing spectacular here, but I've defi [...]

    24. Over the past 3 years I have become an avid UFC fan. It is pretty much the only sport I follow on a regular basis. Brock Lesnar is one of the most interesting fighters because there is not much known about his personal life. I enjoyed reading about his amateur wrestling career along with the brief chapters about the UFC and his fight with diverticulitis. It is an easy read, it took me only a couple of hours to read it.

    25. I only read this because my good friend lent it to me, and I was searching for a shread of respect for this guy. I read it in a matter of hours. This may be the worst book. ever. Nothing about this meathead surprised me, including the poor grammar and cliches, and complete lack of any depth. Sorry Lesnar, you have irritated me since college. Please stick with being a big dumb sideshow and stay away from writing.

    26. Well, this is a timely read (since Lesnar's back in the WWE and all).I think what surprised me the most while reading this is how Lesnar viewed being a pro wrestler. That being a pro wrestler was simply a job (which is different fromlet's say, Chris Jericho).Also, for the record, Lesnar really does come across as huge asshole. Although I have to admit, I love how he is such a family guy.

    27. The fact that I knew most of his story before reading this kind of took some of the excitement away. But it was nice to have him recall his backstage story and some parts of his traveling days. Other than that, it's a nice look into what made him join and then leave the WWE. Then what inspired him to try other ventures afterward. I've been a fan of his since his WWE debut so it was nice to take a trip down memory lane.

    28. Deathclutch is a book about Brock Lesnar and his triumph through injury, illness, and all around pressure from everyone around him. He talks about his path to the NCAA Div. 1 national title, the pressure that WWE put on him to be excellent, and his time in the UFC. All and all this book was very inspirational and helped me push through some rough times. I would recommend this book to anyone who is trying to be successful in any of the before mentioned areas.

    29. I never cared for Brock Lesnar, and this book didn't change my opinion of him at all. I admire the fact that he came back from a life threatening disease to become champion of the UFC for the second time. While he admits that when he lost the title to Velasquez that Velasquez was the better fighter that night, he sets up excuses on why that happened.I was impressed by his love for his family.
