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.

Although this was an interesting read there was very little substance to it. Most conjecture and articles, so Americanised that at time it was nearly impossible to understand what the writer was alluding to. (I suppose what should I expect!). Still, at time (but not often) an insight worth raeding appeared. Pretty disappointintg tbh.

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.
