the two books on the right of the page

"BJ Penn's book of MMA" and "the Tao of Jeet Kune Do"
These two books are by far my two favorite mixed martial arts 'textbooks.'
Here are their descriptions:

the Tao of Jeet Kune Do
by Bruce Lee

One of the earliest and best known books in the field of MMA, it is an international bestseller with over 300,000 copies sold. This is bruce lee's philosophic conception of the art of Jeet Kune Do, mostly in the original words, drawings and thoughts of the late master himself, compiled after his death.
If you don't know about this book, then you desperately need to get yourself to a bookstore or order it online via the amazon link on my page immediately. It is definitely my favorite reference in terms of the mindset and theory of the counter-attack.

BJ Penn's 'Mixed Martial Arts: Book of Knowledge'

BJ Penn, MMA welterweight and lightweight world champion, is the only non-brazilian to win the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world championships and is a fighter in the UFC. This book holds its own against any Gracie book or Muay Thai book combined. Very well written with detailed pictures, it holds just about everything you need to get started, or brush up on certain aspects of mixed martial arts. It is one of the few books out there that guides you through how to formulate strategies, and that just adds even more value to this great book. Once again, bookstore or amazon link. NOW.
