review 1: An absolutely fantastic read. It helps that I'm a pro wrestling fan of course, but really I don't think you have to like wrestling to appreciate this book. Shoemaker clearly did a lot of research into the history of pro wrestling and the history of the lives of these guys. Just an informative book on a subject Shoemaker clearly loves. You can't ask for much more out of a book. I just would have liked more about Macho Man, but at the same time you could right a whole book about the subject.
review 2: Started really well, tons of good history about the early days of wrestling and a good bios of wrestlers that i did't even know about. Newer stuff seems like they were too short or missing important bits and some cases just referencing Wikipedia entrys. I was es
... morepecially disappointment in the Ludvig Borga chapter, as he was a Finnish wrestler, i was looking forward to read about him more than others, but chapter was just short snippet without any real information. Anyway, early parts of the book makes this 3 ½ stars book and it's still hard to read anything about Eddie Guerrero or Chris Benoit, they were my favorite wrestlers back in the day. less

Incredibly great for wrestling fans, pretty great for anyone who is literate.
A lot of information I already knew about, but worth a listen.
Great read on my first "sports" love, pro wrestling.
Great book on an industry that is still so guarded.
