5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Jason S. Walters on August 24, 2006
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a visually stunning, warmly heartfelt, and emotionally powerful pictorial history of Lucha Libre compiled by the genre's most talented and prolific photographer. Ms. Grobet can only be thought of as the high priestess of the "theater of headbutt theology," as she so amusingly puts it. Lucha Libre shows a side of wrestling life unavailable anywhere else. There are luchadoras feeding their babies, enmascarados helping their wives with the dishes, and space giants hanging out with their Ewoks -- to name but a few images.

Lucha Libre is also a surprisingly large and thick book. Although it has a "softback" cover, it is in every way a coffee table book suitable for impressing a houseguest... assuming that he can be impressed by a full color pictorial history of masked wrestling. It has captions in both Spanish as well as glorious, unpretentious Spanglish that are a genuine pleasure to read. It's only flaws are that it isn't indexed (a pet peeve of mine) and that it's binding is a bit weak. Still, for the price this book is an absolute steal.

You would have to be a no-account Rudo not to buy this book.

Format: Paperback
I purchased this book for research and I was not dissapointed. First of all the book is large, and at over 300 pages there's plenty of eye candy. A lot of the pictures have a photo journalist feel to them bringing you deeper into the world that is Mexican Wrestling. This book is worth every penny. Do purchase.
