Authors Reynolds and Alvarez do a great job describing the tumultuous history of World Championship Wrestling in this quick read. As a fan of outrageously stupid wrestling gimmicks, I enjoyed the parts of the book that detailed horrendous storylines and characters from WCW. It's also a good cautionary tale for some current wrestling promotions on how to avoid alienating your fanbase. At times the narrative is slowed by an influx of ratings and grosses and buyrates but for the most part it flows well. A must read for anyone interested in how WCW blew up real good.
