Product Description

Review

"[Holly] shoots straight from the hip with sharp thoughts that cut to the chase. For those who know of Holly's personality in and out of the ring, it provides an endearing, personal style that gives an apt representation of the author." —www.slam.canoe.ca

One of the better wrestling related books to date. Bob Holly offers a great perspective of the view from the middle of the card and pulls no punches on his perspective from there.

This is one of the best wrestling bios out there, right up there with Mick Foley 's, chris Jericho's and Bret hart's books.

I loved this book it has some language that is very Hardcore but it is a real honest look at wrestling from a guy who came though 3 area's in wrestling and was very truthful in how he felt the product was going. I would say if you like the Attitude Area or WWE from 90 to 2006 this is a must read and after ready over 15 of these wrestling Autobiography style books this is just under Mick Foley's first book as my favorite read.

Format: Paperback
I've read pretty much every wrestling book out there (Jericho, Hart, Flair, Billy Robinson, Bishoff, etc.), and this is truly one of the most entertaining ones.

The good:
- Bob Holly gives his honest and uncensored opinion. He doesn't hold ANYTHING back. He name drops a lot and doesn't care about hurting feelings. This is as straight forward as it can get.
- He talks about the Ins and Outs of the business, from his bar fighting days up to the end of his WWE career. That covers a lot!
- Many, many road stories. This book is 98% wrestling and the pages on his race car driving days are still very entertaining.
- The author, Ross Williams, wrote a very nice book that flows easily.

The bad:
- Absolutely nothing bad about this book. Seriously.

Final verdict: 5 out of 5

It is now one of my favorite books along with Jericho, Foley and Bret Hart. This is a MUST READ for any fan that liked the 90's and 00's era of the WWF. "How do you like me now?" I like you a lot more Bob!
