[H]e provides more details and more insights that ultimately increase frustrations, but at the same time, must be examined if you choose, like myself, to claim to be an informed fan of an industry that had its blissful ignorance torn to shreds." Wrestling Observer
"Incredible retelling of the tragic story . . . Highly recommended." Georgia Wrestling Online

It's unfortunate that in my tenure as a wrestling fan that a whole bunch of my favorite wrestlers have died while still young including such greats as David Smith aka 'The British Bulldog', Curt Hennig aka 'Mr Perfect' and more recently Eddie Guerrero. What's even more unfortunate is that the passing of these lives occurred without much scrutiny from the media in general. All that changed with the Benoit tragedy.
If you're not familiar with Chris Benoit, or somehow missed the media explosion following the murder-suicide, he was regarded as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of his era. He was a former WWE champion and looked upon as being a role model to fans and younger wrestlers learning their craft.

Whether you're a fan of professional wrestling, true crime, or just a good story, this book doesn't let you down.
Since I was also a bookworm growing up, I eagerly sought out and consumed any book I could find on wrestling. Most of them were terrible, with bad writing and shoddy structures. Not so with this book. Not only is the story compelling, but Muchnick writes it like a true writer with a firm command of language and knowledge of his subject. By far the best book I've ever read on wrestling, and I'd recommend it to anyone who's interested in wrestling, crime stories, or just good writing.
