St. Pierre now NY Times Best Selling author


In addition to being perhaps the greatest welterweight champion of all-time, Georges St-Pierre can now add another accolade to his list: NY Times Best Selling Author. St-Pierre's new book 'The Way of the Fight' recently made the list:

St-Pierre’s recent book, The Way of the Fight, landed on the most recent New York Times Best Sellers list for Hardcover Nonfiction books at number 30.

Unlike many other mixed martial arts related tomes, The Way of the Fight is neither a step-by-step training manual nor a full-on autobiography, although it’s more of the latter than the former. The book has a strong philosophical bent to it.

He didn't write it, but he did contribute a lot to it, it's really is his thoughts that are in there. Many ghostwriters have or take a lot of liberties, or just write what amounts to a "Propaganda" piece. From the critics I've read, it's pretty deep into his thinking, which sounds interesting and different.

Right, like how he fights aliens at night without knowing he's fighting aliens at night.

Thats not afair comparison at all. No way Hemingway can write as well as GSP.

Did you seriously just compare GSP to Hemingway?

The headlines should be titled "St. Pierre's Ghost Writer now NY Times Best Selling Author". Anyone who has ever heard GSP try to form a proper sentence in English can probably deduce that he had help writing it. Stick to fighting Georges!

I just voted you up, as I was just coming here to paste my message from the MMA Weekly webpage on the article.  Since I went through the effort of copying it, I will post it anyhow.      "Fellow fighter, friend, and mentor Kristof Midoux; Brazilian jiu-jitsu coach John Danaher; head coach Firas Zahabi; and friend, manager, and training partner Rodolphe Beaulieu all add some interesting perspective on St-Pierre and his life."   No input from Greg Jackson? That is surprising, isn't it?

My version:"The publishers made a unanimous decision to hire a ghostwriter after learning Georges was unable to finish the book."
