From Publishers Weekly
An entertaining follow-up to their popular book A Lion's Tale, international wresting superstar Jericho and co-writer Fornatale continue their chronicle of Jericho's wild ride through the wacky world of professional wrestling. This book picks up where the earlier book ended—with Jericho in 1999 joining Vince McMahon's World Wrestling Enterprise, the most important venue in wresting—and ends with Jericho's return to the ring in 2007 after a two-year retirement. Jericho hilariously details these key years as WWE's resident bad guy. His feuds with WWE's colorful (and colorfully profane) cast, including the likes of X-Pac, Ken Shamrock, Chyna, Kurt Angle, Chris Benoit, and Christian, are solidly recounted, although most of this will be old news to hardcore WWE fans. But the most interesting stories involve his battles on- and off-stage with such better-known stars as Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and Goldberg—whom Jericho once had run over by a limousine during an episode of WWE's Raw series. 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. (Feb.)

'Simply put, you MUST own this book... If his acclaimed bestseller "A Lions Tale" set a standard for wrestling tomes, his long-awaited follow-up "Undisputed" has raised the bar again Jericho is now the proud scribe of two out of the top three wrestling books of all time.' DAILY STAR 'If Jericho had never made it as a wrestler or a rock star he could have easily found a suitable career as a writer. His style of writing anc consistent wityy sense of humour makes the book very addictive... Just like the first book, this sequel belongs on the bookshelf of any wrestling fan past or present.'

While most people will buy this with his wrestling career in mind, the book also serves as a reminder of how harsh the music industry is, as Chris covers his time in Fozzy from playing to empty clubs to playing huge festivals. There is a also a really cool story about Axl Rose randomly appearing and hanging with Jericho and crew one night that was very interesting.
Something I like about Chris' writing is he's not afraid to call things as they happened, and isn't afraid of crushing egg shells with people, and isn't worried about painting a pretty picture of everyone to keep a job. I appreciated his honesty in describing moments with McMahon that had favorable and unfavorable outcomes.
One of things I did pick up is the book has a tone to it when describing Chris Benoit, which he has a whole chapter dedicated to, Chris acknowledges the incident, but at the same time wants to remind the readers of all his friend accomplished, and not let Benoit's entire life be summed up by the murder/suicide. It's a great reminder that aside from the end, Benoit did have a lot of heart for wrestling.
Great book, I recommend it for anyone who's a wrestling or metal fan
If you are a wrestling fan, this is one book that is not to be missed.
That said, this is not a book exclusively about his wrestling career. As most Jericho fans will know, he is part of a group called Fozzy and much of the book focuses on the growth of his heavy metal band and his exposure to the business. We're exposed to Jericho's honesty about his life, his habits, and his mistakes which makes him appear more human. While I personally found the entire book compelling, wrestling fans may not care too much about the Fozzy sections.
Overall, a good read, albeit a quick one. Worth it a discounted price.
