Is it possible to give this 0 stars? It's another salacious look at the wrestling industry, as told by an outsider without any affection for the art form. The only bright spot was a re-printing of the excellent 1988 Penthouse article on the Von Erich family decline. Unfortunately, this sums up this book perfectly: a re-printing of several articles designed to portray pro wrestling in the worst possible light.

I do love my guilty pleasures and this was the guiltiest of them all. It has to be the most facintating reads I gone through. For guys only??? I guess. But, if you're feeling adventurous. I do recomend it.
