Looking for a new wrestling autobiography to read I stumbled across Adrian Street's set of four books and thought I would give the first one a go. Ive been a wrestling fan since I was 7 years old, in 1984. British wrestling didn't really grab my attention, I was aware of it on World Of Sport on Saturday afternoons and thought it was interesting but that was as far as my interest went. That was until the advent of cable TV in the UK and a visit to my grandad's house to find him riveted to the TV. He was watching World Wide Wrestling presented by the NWA and it blew my mind. I had never seen anything like it, the characters, the drama and the razamataz was incedible. One of those colourful characters was Exotic Adrian Street, skipping around the ring in glittered make up with blonde pig tails he looked like anything but a wrestler, until he wrestled that is and he was all man.

I thought I would check this book out to read how his career began and his start around the UK. As you can imagine, with this being the first installment of his autobiography it has little mention of wrestling until the end, instead it focuses on his childhood in Wales up to the age of 16, focuing heavily on his relationship with his family. The positive about this book is the detail he goes into with regards to how his life was developing and the characters who shaped him. The negative I would say about the book is that there is quite a bit of information that is irrelevant to the arc of the story, this is probably due to the fact that the book is self written and published with no edit to refine the story and keep it moving along at a steady pace.

I have been a fan a professional wrestling since watching World of Sport in the early 1980's and have read a lot of wrestling autobiographies since Mick Foley's first volume. Adrian Street's books are among the best.
The book is reminiscent of David Nobbs 'Life and Times of Henry Pratt' and Michael Green's 'The Boy who Shot Down an Airship', it covers Adrian's early life in Brynmawr during and after WW2 until he leaves for London when he's 16. It probably won't be of much interest to casual wrestling fans but people who would find it enjoyable would be put of by the title and cover and because it's a wrestlers autobiography.
I had a personal interest in the book as my grandfather was born in Brynmawr (his cousin was married to Adrian's aunt) and also left to go to London, although about 25 years before Adrian did.
My mother (70) and great-aunt (93) also both enjoyed the book.

This isn't a wrestlign book. Lets make that clear now. This is the autobiography of Adrian Street part 1. Something so many wrestlers autobiography books lack is any detail about their lives. While that might not be a 'seller', a person's life isn't just about their work.

This is a great book on pre and post war Wales, and a little boy growing up. A little boy with a very vivid imagination, and a thurst for adventure.

I will agree that the tales of Adrian's father are rather long, but I feel they deserve a place, not just in this book but in history.

It's difficult to say who I would reccomend this book to, as I would say there is something here for everybody.

I really loved this book and finished it really quickly as I could not put it down once I had started it. I had been a fan of Adrian Street back in the 60's and 70's and it was interesting to read this story as back in the day not so much information was available on your favourite stars like it is now. It needs to be noted that if you are only interested in reading about the wrestling, most of this book takes place before Adrian really gets started wrestling but it would be a shame to miss out on reading about his early life as he is a natural storyteller and it is a very good read.

Lovely book. Remarkably well written and in parts very funny.
Would certainly suit anyone who knows the areas that Adrian Street is talking about.
Very nostalgic for me.
