A must for UK Wrestling fans!
on 4 July 2013
I recently finished reading "Spandex, Screw Jobs and Cheap Pops" and found it informative, interesting and thoroughly entertaining throughout.
The book looks at all aspects of the UK wrestling scene, through the eyes of promoters, wrestlers, fans and other observers. I was enthralled by the stories people in the business told of their experiences and hopes for wrestling going forward. Wrestling in the UK is going through a real revival at the moment but at the same time there is a lot of work to be done to reach the hights that people with a love of wrestling would like to see. Carrie Dunn has managed to tease interesting and often openly frank responses from the many subjects that she interviewed and this helps to give a really good picture of the challenges faced to the current participants in UK wrestling.
I would thoroughly recommend this book, not just to committed fans, for who i think it is a "must buy", but those that have only had a passing interest before. Carrie Dunn's book is an excellent account of the blossoming UK wrestling scene. I wish her very well with this book and also her future literary efforts!
