Book Description

4 May 2005
John Lister is one of Britain's most respected wrestling journalists. Mixing travelogue, humour, fiction, history and opinion, this collection brings together the best of his work from the past fourteen years. The first section of this book features three epic accounts of voyages to see wrestling in the United States, from the ECW Arena to the Dallas Sportatorium by way of WWF pay-per-views and Memphis television. The second section comprises more than 40 articles, some previously unpublished, including histories of British and American wrestling, the statistics behind WCW's collapse, and a disgraceful allegation about Tommy Rich.

Product Description

Review

Intelligent, but completely accessible style... a perfect example of why he was, and still is, regarded in such high acclaim. -- Northern Lights Wrestling (www.northernlightswrestling.tk)

Its mix of passion, enthusiasm, hope, humour, cynicism and frustration encompasses all the emotions we all experience as wrestling fans. -- Wrestling Observer (www.wrestlingobserver.com)

Part travelogue, part history lesson, part opinion, it's a hell of a read. -- Two Sheds Review (www.twoshedsreview.com)
