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"
"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."

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.
Indeed it was. I've since 'collected' all three of Chris Jericho's books, and all three are excellent. It's about a wrestler, but it's not exactly all about wrestling. It's about Chris Jericho, and it chronicles his rise from being a kid through today. This title is picks up where his previous book left off, as is his style. I highly recommend the three, read the first, you'll want to read the other two! His story is one that, you really don't get "to know" his story without reading it from the start.
I especially like that he doesn't gloss over the parts most people would sweep out of his spotlight. You get to read it all, even the parts of his history that he admits he's ashamed of that most people would gloss over. In short, it's an honest book which makes it fairly unique as autobiographical works go. It's an awesome read.
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!)
This one pretty much picks up right where Undisputed left off, and is filled with more fantastic Jericho stories that'll have you laughing out loud at all of the crazy antics and situations that Chris seems to get himself into. What I absolutely love is how open, honest, and candid he is during his stories - no matter how poorly a story may reflect on him, he shows how he has grown and developed as a person (the Drunkicho story in this one involving Shawn Michaels proves that he can admit when he's wrong and take that experience to learn and grow from.)
Get it, read it - you won't regret it.
