5.0 out of 5 stars A great, candid and hugely entertaining read, 26 Jun. 2014

This review is from: When We Were Bouncers: Famous Actors, Athletes and Others Tell Insane Stories of Their Days Behind the Velvet Rope (Kindle Edition)
This book is highly recommended for anyone who enjoys a great, entertaining biography full of wild characters and memorable stories. Although "When We Were Bouncers" is not a 'biography' or 'autobiography' in the obvious sense, the candid, honest and, at times, totally insane stories featured here are very raw and revealing. If you're a fan of any of the actors or pro fighters featured in the book, you will almost certainly read some anecdotes you never knew about.

Author Paul Lazenby, who is well known as a stuntman and actor himself, has done an excellent job essentially writing up conversations with his friends and peers and has turned them into a compelling e-book. These are the types of stories you'd hear in the bar or over a coffee, and not the journalist-friendly stuff you'd often encounter. This makes the book all the more special and gives the feeling you're getting the inside track from these guys. So prepare to be entertained and, occasionally, a little shocked!

I very much hope there's a follow-up down the road. Be sure to pick this up now! Highly recommended.

An easy read filled with some very funny stories. Not a book for intellectuals but an enjoyable read none the less.

OK, but not as many stories from MMA fighters as I was hoping for,
