It's a classic for a reason. I'd also recommend it as a business study as it analyses the numbers and the reasons for them very thoroughly. It's very well written, funny and always interesting. If you've read the original and wondering if it's worth buying this edition I'd recommend it as it has tons of new content.

A thorough blow by blow account of the mistakes and misjudgements (both behind and in front of the cameras) that took World Championship Wrestling out of business. It certainly covers everything and at times it makes for unbelievable reading, but it's let down by really poor writing, it feels more like reading a website than a novel (the phrase "don't ask" and variations of it appear so often it becomes like water torture, and every point made has to then be repeated with "Yes, they really did this" just to hammer it home). Even more so in this 10th anniversary edition the authors seem intent on, to use a wrestling term, "putting themselves over" rather than just telling the story. Yes well done Messrs Reynolds and Alvarez, you're very clever and funny and we're all laughing. There's definitely a great book in the demise of what was at one time the biggest wrestling company in the world, but this isn't it.

Awesome book with loads of extra content. I was a fan of the original book and enjoyed the 10 yr anniversary edition just as much. Funny throughout and the rise and fall of a major US wrestling promotion described in painstaking detail. Although I loved the humour in this book the story of WCW is so sad and it's hard to believe a company that had it all completely took a nose dive and lost THAT much money. If you're a fan of pro wrestling buy this book...also subscribe to Wrestling Observer online run by Bryan Alvarez while you're at it, great radio shows and newsletters with top notch journalism.

I have not laughed as much reading a book for a long time. Some of the story lines and angles described in this book had me roaring with laughter.
But this book also shed light on a lot of questions that I have long found puzzling. What was the exact relationship between NWA and WCW ? How could such a good situation such as WCW had in the mid 90's turn so sour ? How did WWE manage to buy their competition for such a small amount of money in the end ?
This book explained s these questions better than anything else I have read

An intriguing, thoroughly researched examination of the life and, ultimately (as the title suggests), death of the pro-wrestling superpower. What is refreshing is that this does not take the course of criticising 'storyline' alone, it looks at the correlations between what was going on on-screen, backstage, at the gate and in the ratings.

A great and accessible read for anyone curious about this company, whether from nostalgia or, for the younger fan, from hearing its name bandied about on the modern show.

The story of the rise and incredible fall is detailed here in all its glory. The book goes through the entire history of the company, with a combination of snippets of interviews with wrestlers and background figures in the middle of it all, and also a nice dose of humour. For even the most fairweather wrestling fan this is.a fascinating read, delving into the good, bad and downright baffling decisions which led to the downfall of wcw, alongside warning notes for tna to follow at the end of the book.

Good insight in to the other side of the industry that we very rarely see. As I write this I'm about a third of the way through and surprised already at how things were structured and how many bad decisions were made
