Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for UNDISPUTED

"It is here that Jericho shines and proves once again that, next to Mick Foley, he is an insightful and funny observer of pro wrestling's absurd universe."

- Publisher's Weekly

"It’s honest, its entertaining and it’s insightful, I highly recommend it, and to Mick Foley I’d say watch out, Jericho could quickly become the 'undisputed' wrestling author champion of the world."

- Bleacher Report


Praise for A LION'S TALE

"Brash, compulsively readable...as bracing as a body slam." 
- Kirkus Reviews

"A cleverly told, fun-filled story...But it's really more than that. It's the story of a man living out his dream"
- ChicagoSports.com

"The best book centered around a wrestler I've read."
- Jerry Green, Orlando Sentinel 

"Funny, earthy, and outrageous." 
- Tampa Tribune



Praise for Undisputed:

"Jericho could quickly become the 'undisputed' wrestling author champion of the world."
—Bleacher Report

I enjoyed reading the book and enjoy the irreverent style of writing he does. However, it's not nearly as meaty as his first two books. Part of it, I blame on the relatively short timeline he was writing about. Stretching six years into 400 pages is a bit of a stretch. Another part of it is the relatively tame state of the WWE locker room.

His first book had a ton of stories about different locker rooms. His second book was insightful as it was a very interesting time in the WWF/WWE locker room and in his career. The third book has some entertaining anecdotes that will make the time fly but there really isn't anything with any punch behind it aside from when he covers his trip to Iraq and the portion of the book that encompasses the HBK feud.

And the lack of punch is where it goes from five stars to three. The locker room environment isn't as chaotic as it used to be. I understand that and don't really blame him for it. What I do take umbrage with is that he doesn't go into some more controversial stuff like him and Helms getting arrested or the rumored Kelly Kelly affair in which pictures are plastered all over the Internet; he seems hesitant to include anything that portrays him in a bad light other than stuff he can explain away easily. Even his rock n roll road stories are mild when compared to stories from rock bands of the 60's, 70's, and 80's.

If you enjoyed the first two books, you'll enjoy this one. Just don't expect it to be as good.

While slowly counting down the days until Chris Jericho's latest tome hit book shelves, I had a feeling in the back of my head that Jericho's third outing couldn't possibly live up to the quality of his first two books (A Lion's Tale and Undisputed). I received the book and debated if I should crack it open or let it sit until I had to fly back to my native Minnesota for vacation. Tough decision but I decided to read a chapter then save it for the airplane 3 weeks later. I started in on the first chapter finishing it in a few minutes. However, something strange hit me. Soon, I was at chapter four, then five, then six. Before I knew it, an hour passed since I started reading. He did it again...

Jericho's first two books had that rare ability to suck the reader in and not let them go until they have to. 'The Best in the World" was not an exception. The first chapter worried me as I briefly thought Jericho was going to venture into the way of politics. When I read a book, I want to get away from all that stuff. Doesn't matter the party or political views. This is what turned me off to Mick Foley's book after his third outing. Luckily, Chris stayed away from it and produced an intense chapter on his visit to an active war zone with the WWE. By far, probably Jericho's most dramatic/intense chapter in any of his three books.

Proceeding that, Chris gives a brief foreshadowing of his Royal Rumble return before jumping back into the main body of the book. I found myself having to go back to the end of Undisputed (book #2) and re-establish the timeline of Jericho's career as I was a bit confused after his numerous departures and returns. I wasn't quite sure if the main focus of the book was his Rumble return or his "2nd coming" return.

Wrestling Biographies are a sweet little adiction that I have fostered ever since Mick Foley's Have a Nice Day sprang up the charts all those years ago! The genre is unlike any other genre I have found. I love sports entertainment but I admit to loving tradition sports a little more. However -For the Most part Wrestling books are so much more fun than those other sports books. The honesty (brutal in many cases), road life (shocking in many cases), background stories of important matches grip the reader in a way other sports genre's usually are afraid too or simply are unable to due to a less sensational environment.

I have enjoyed most of the wrestling books I have read including even the self serving ones from Dusty Rhodes or the Nature Boy Ric Flair! I was able to get through the somewhat annoying one from the Rock whose ghost writer for some reason decided to write the whole book like a in character promo from the Brahma Bull! Only Chris Jericho has been able to be in the rarefied air of that of Mick Foley. Undisputed was a nice book, but it wasn't as crisp as that of A lion's tale. I like his Fozzy stories but they just didn't fit as well with the wrestling stuff. Unlike Foley, Jericho's 3rd book is not just as good as the first two, I believe it is even better! It is mostly chronological, but it is nicely structured around a key topic in each chapter. Every once in a while there is a nice little chapter that kind of gives the reader a nice little break and we deal with lighter fare like a list of the entrance songs he has had (which is also a smart way or marrying his two worlds of WWE and music!)

In my opinion there are only two good autobiographies that have come out of the WWE, Mick Foley & Chris Jericho. I look forward to Jericho books (Mick has taken a long sabbatical). He has had such a diverse and storied career in wrestling, music, and other media, so it's interesting to catch up with his crazy life every few years or so. If you enjoyed his other two books, you are sure to love this one. Follow Chris as he returns to the WWE (again), climbs the heavy metal hierarchy with Fozzy, competes on dancing with the Stars, tours Iraq, hosts a short lived game show, and introduces you to his favorite drink, the "Yeah Boy."
