As a fan, I purchased this book over a year ago looking forward to an inside perspective and only just recently managed to finish it. The reason it took so long is certainly not the quantity of material (it's a very quick read start to finish) but rather how no part of the material really managed to keep my interest. Recently I decided to push through and finally made it to the end.

The writing style is very basic and most chapters hold very little narrative unity, often spilling over into rambling. My first thought was that this is understandable as, though I consider the skill involved in quality sports entertainment to be sublime, it certainly does not require one to also have a developed literary voice. But, upon reaching the acknowledgements section of the book, the author states that these stores were taken from oral interviews. To me, this meant two things: 1) We were robbed of the opportunity to hear these stories told directly from the source but were instead given rewritten versions by the author and 2) When they were rewritten, no effort (or no successful effort) was taken to effectively translate a spoken into a written narrative. Both of these, in my view, severely reduce the justification for this books existence much beyond it's initial conceptual appeal.

To speak to the positive side, this book is not without a few bits of rewarding insight and post match commentary from the participants themselves, as advertised. I particularly enjoyed the information about a performers state of mind going in to a particular confrontation (such as Shawn Michaels's nerves going in to Wrestlemania XXVI) which we, as fans, don't normally have access to.

Give it a shot if you'd like. My comments notwithstanding, you may still find something enjoyable to take away from it just, perhaps, not as much as you would have liked.

The tradition in our family for Easter is to fill the kids baskets with lots of books and art or stationary type stuff (markers, pencils, stickers, etc.) ...along with chocolate of course.
Our new foster son isn't much of a reader, but I didn't want to break from tradition, and I'm hoping he'll grow more fond of reading. Since he's obsessed with WWE I was hoping he would enjoy this book and another WWE reading book I found. When he saw the book he said it looked cool...now hopefully he'll read it!

This is a pretty interesting book about wrestler's and their favorite matches. I enjoyed hearing the wrestler's take on why they particularly picked that match to be their favorite. Each wrestler had their own criteria on why they picked their match and that made the book have a wide variety of different stories. One down side was, I felt was the book was too short. I would of loved for them to have about 20-25 more wrestlers stories. Overall a very quick and good read.

My son actually enjoyed reading this book and anyone with a teenage boy knows it is hard to find books that they enjoy.
