I used to love wrestling in the 80's. Roddy Piper was one of the major stars of the then WWF. I came to this book expecting an over view of his WWF and then WCW days. It doesn't quite get to the WCW part but that doesn't matter. The tale Piper tells if of the world he grew up in. From his early begginings in very dodgy ring attire, to being a top draw in WWF.
It's similar in vain to Tom "Dynamite Kids" Billingtons book. The thing with this book is you don't want to put this down. I hope that there's going to be a 2nd volume. I'd reccomend this to anyone with even a passing interest in wrestling. If you've seen any films with Piper, in get it as well. He exposes a lot about the promoters and how they deal with wrestlers. If you enjoyed watching Beyond the Mat, get this book. BTW, I liked Hell Comes to Frog Town, even if Piper didn't.
