The material is readable but nothing new to wrestling fans who have read other books.
Don't buy this book.
The truth was quite the opposite. First off, I should have checked that the book 152 actual pages. That's ...nothing.
Second the content is sub-par, old overwritten--it's all available online. Further the content in this book is often inaccurate or at least needs to mention alternative conclusions and the reasons for or against those.
It's not worth a dime. In one word this book is: Wrestling Garbage. At best.
It was not. The stories were interesting, and the writing was good, but I was left wanting more details. It's essentially a collection of articles that Irv wrote for various publications. The very nature of an article would suggest that it's short, and I think he missed a golden opportunity to expand on the stories.
He's a talented writer, but this book felt lacking to me.
