Despite it being short,(I like big books)"To be the man" is an entertaining and interesting read.Covering his early NWA days right up to the date this book was written. He goes into detail about his dealings with Hulk Hogan The Crocketts, Eric Bischoff and others.You also get bits of commentary from other wrestlers involved with Ric at the time. I would give it five stars if it wasn't for the authors slightly ridiculous claims about certain wrestlers (eg. That Bret Hart "didn't draw money outside Canada")
So if your an old or even new school wrestling fan you can do a lot worse (Hulk Hogans book)than this.
As an avid movie fan from the tender age of three years old, I was, as I imagine were many of you, exposed to the Bond phenomenon from the comfort of a cozy couch, with milkshake in hand. Even since the advent of DVD, I could never have hoped for such a luxury which was, upon it's opening, of purely Bondian standards. The films were excellent enough, never mind the scale of special features to which I have never been accustomed. This would be the perfect starter kit for the Bond fan, even though there are now updated versions of this set, I won't bother with another until the franchise screeches to a defiant, and definitive halt!
I rented this DVD off amazon having watched a couple of episodes when it went out on the BBC I have to say it is the best historical drama i have ever seen. The performances are strong especially Michael Sheen as the maniacal Nero and David Threlfall (best known in the TV series Shameless) as Constantine
buy this DVD if you have an interest in Roman history its great!
I you want to read an informative retrospective and interesting Biography of one of the worlds worst dictators do not buy this ridiculous book. Jung Chang's hatred for the subject is apparent throughout She lets her anger get in the way of telling the story. Yes, Mao was a bad man but he was human. Jung Chang writes as if he was a monster. Read Mao: A Life its much better.
