Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

This funny, insightful and compulsively readable autobiography by professional wrestling superstar Lion Heart Jericho matches fellow wrestler Mick Foley's bestselling Have a Nice Day! Jericho reached international stardom after joining the media juggernaut World Wrestling Entertainment (formerly WWF) in 1999, but this book neglects his many accomplishments since then, such as his legendary same-night defeat of wrestling powerhouses the Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin to become the WWE's first undisputed heavyweight champion. Instead, Jericho recounts the fascinating story of his early years—in effect, a short history of world wrestling trends since 1960—from his brutal early training in his native Canada through finally being invited to join the WWE. Jericho ignores or glosses over controversial topics like steroid use, preferring to keep things light and cheery. His hilarious and detailed descriptions of his many bouts, especially his 1995 calling card match in Japan before 10,000 fans, will leave readers hoping for a sequel. (Oct. 25)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book about one of the best in the business April 29 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This autobiography focuses on Jericho's beginnings, from the cold gyms of Manitoba to his debut interrupting The Rock on Monday Night Raw. Great anecdotes about his time in Mexico, Japan, ECW and WCW, and even though the book had a "ghost writer", the Jericoholics will appreciate the author's wit and honesty., akin to the character he portrays in the ring.

5.0 out of 5 stars Y2J, A True Man of Letters! Nov. 16 2007
A very compelling read!! Jericho's book is very entertaining, and a delight to own.
Intrigue and hilarity abound throughout as Chris Jericho -- the Ayatollah of Rock and Rollah!! -- tells his life story as only he could, in true Y2J fashion; absolutely hilarious prose, and profound insights into the human conditio...er, um...frankly shocking, mostly unseen and nearly inexplicable aspects of his life-experience as a burgeoning-to-mega-superstar in big-time pro wrestling.
Get this book!!
