Thanks to a combination of physical prowess, indomitable will, and sharp and unconventional powers of observation, Urijah The California Kid Faber has risen to the top of the mixed martial arts food chain. In "The Laws of the Ring", he draws from these strengths, providing a unique and deeply personal look at life in and outside the cage - lessons fans can use to shape their own worlds. Part self-help book, personal journey, and meditation on a well-lived life, "The Laws of the Ring" is filled with funny, provocative, and inspirational stories that provide a colorful glimpse into the rise of a young superstar and the philosophy behind his success. For Faber, fighting is a quest for self-awareness and an act of self-expression.
The "Laws of the Ring" offers his reflections on success and failure through his 10 Laws of Power and his Five Laws of Weakness. He speaks frankly about personal role models like Randy Couture, as well as human barnacles such as Internet Steve, one of the many hangers - on who have given Faber a unique look at the dark side of fame.
And he includes wisdom drawn from disparate realms including history, art, and sports that will guide readers on the path to getting, and living, the life they want. My way isn't for everyone, Faber says, but everyone can take something away from my experience.

Tenk om du fikk sjansen til å oppfinne deg selv på nytt. Hvem ville du da bli? Dagen med stor D, som skal være den beste i ens liv, ble ikke helt som Georgia hadde planlagt. I stedet for å skride oppover midtgangen i sin vakre brudekjole, sitter hun med tårevåte kinn og en tam Sex on the beach og lurer på hva i all verden det var som gikk galt.
Desillusjonert og med knust hjerte blir hun oppfordret av bestevenninnen til å skrive en liste over nye mål i livet.
Snart sitter Georgia, som aldri har reist noen steder alene, på et fly til Thailand med en rundreise i sørlige Asia foran seg. Men eventyret i Asia begynner alt annet enn bra. Merkelige steder, underlige lukter og mengder av turistfeller.
Georgia har aldri kjent seg mer ensom og utsatt. Men det positive med å bryte sammen er at man kan bygge opp igjen en helt ny versjon av seg selv. Og kanskje kan den nye Georgia endelig bli noen hun er stolt av. Destinasjon Thailand er en koselig og romantisk komedie om å våge å forlate alt og kaste seg ut i det ukjente, ta vare på livets muligheter og om å vokse som person.
