The skill these athlete's show is under appreciated. The author takes into the backgrounds of those who pave the way for today's 'sports entertainment' people. From Johnny Valentine who was acknowledged by Lou Thez in his auto 'biography' 'Hooker My Crazy Life in Professional Wrestling' for his toughness something he normally would not do because of his lack of respect for non-wrestlers, to the demons some wrestlers endured. The tragic demise of Owen Hart and the difficulties his father Stu Hart endured. The sadness of MS Elizabeth and her life behind the glitz and glamor of the business to the tragedy of a talented wrestler such as Terry Gordy who's excessive lifestyle lead to an early grave. For those was truly appreciated the history of this sport this is a must read.' -- jmworacle
