It's really the only reference book of its kind, but there are enough inaccuracies to fill a two-ring battle royal. Granted information on the business was much harder to come by when this book was written, and factual information was often well nigh impossible to gather. There's not much here that one couldn't get from message boards like Kayfabe Memories and Wrestling Classics, which are crawling with learned wrestling historians. That said, I'm glad it's on my bookshelf.
