This book is anything but interesting, in depth, or fun. It is TERRIBLY dry and the complete opposite of "interesting, in depth or fun". George Schire might be able to TALK about wrestling in a compelling way, but boy howdy he sure can't write in a compelling way. I don't care so much that he barely mentions the Omaha territory, because there is plenty of interesting history to cover. The problem is, Schire's account is anything but interesting.
"In 1967 Mad Dog beat Killer Kowalski." That's basically as much as you get. Just a bland, boring recount of the results of fictional fighting. No context. No analysis. No fun. Just boring, sterile factual recounting of predetermined events. In my opinion.
The only semi redeeming aspects are the (very limited) recreations of dirt rag articles, pictures, and match cards.
His heart was in the right place, but he sure can't write worth a darn. You will be sorely let down if you purchase this, especially for someone who is passionate and exhilarated by old school wrestling.
