Chael Sonnen's Book Is Out! - Controversial UFC Fighter Pens Self-Help - 'The Voice of Reason: A V.I.P. Pass to Enlightenment'

Current UFC middleweight number one contender and pound-for-pound king of trash-talkers Chael Sonnen is set to unleash his wacky histrionics upon the world in written form for the first time. Sonnen, a staunch conservative, is the author of a new self-help book titled The Voice of Reason: A V.I.P. Pass to Enlightenment.

Chael Sonnen in the epitome of a love-him-or-hate-him fighter with his pro wrestling-style approach to MMA fight promotion. But as the saying goes, one man's insanity is another man's genius. And from this book description, it appears that we're about to get the ultimate Chael Sonnen manifesto.
Presence. Tenacity. Insight. Omniscience. No need to look these words up. They are defined by yours truly. Who am I? I'm the one who needs no introduction, the walking thesaurus, the UFC's most infamous and feared destroyer of men. I am Chael P. Sonnen, and you want to be just like me.

It's your lucky day. What you are holding in your hands is nothing short of a V.I.P pass to enlightenment. In the coming pages my humor and tales of heroic adventure will baptize you in superhuman greatness. Allow me to carry you like a frail damsel as I make a nightmarish decent into the bowels of Sao Paulo. Sit before me as a student as I teach you about my plans of creating a Chaelocracy, which translates to "A Better Earth." Shower me with praise as I take you into my manly mitts like a lump of seemingly worthless clay and craft you into something far better than yourself—me.

Like all great men of myth and legend, I strive for the betterment of the human race. Prometheus brought us fire; Dana White brought us the modern day gladiator; and I bring you a step-by-step guide to being just like me. Do you have what it takes? Is there truly a chance that one day you will be able to walk in my shoes? Purchase this book and find out. There is no better day to stop being you and start trying to be me.

You're welcome civilization.

Not convinced? Here is some addition information you will glean from The Voice of Reason:
  • Why Dance Dance Revolution is the national fighting style of Brazil.
  • How vegans are ruining themselves and the world.
  • Why you should never feed carrots to a school bus.
  • Why you don’t need an athlete to be your hero.
  • How fighters and fashion models have the exact same job.
  • Why republicans are more compassionate, pioneering, rebellious, and generally cooler than any liberal.
Inside this book I offer you my knowledge of physics, politics, linguistics, history, and physiology. Unless you are currently standing in the checkout line or speeding home, wanting to save my brilliance for when you are curled up in a recliner sipping on some tea, you have already failed at becoming something similar to me. Chael P. Sonnen knows what he wants and buys it. He doesn't need a dust jacket to tell him a book is good. He can feel it.
"The Voice of Reason" will be released in hardcover on May 15, 2012, but you can pre-order now at Amazon. Currently 40% off the cover price!

Chael Sonnen will be fighting next at UFC 148: Silva vs Sonnen 2 in an EPIC rematch with UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva in Brazil. After all of the disparaging remarks Sonnen has made about Brazil and its people, the fact that he is willing to go there to fight proves that he truly has balls the size of grapefruits. Sonnen not only talks the talk, but he's willing to walk the walk. Straight into hell. Against the best fighter of all time, in front of what is sure to be a bloodthirsty Brazilian crowd.
