Who knew 'Uncle Zeb' could be so entertaining?. I freely admit i am a wrestling mark, with 30+ biographies on my wrestling bookshelf. If there was ever a wrestling curriculum, this would be a recommended text, and would be one I would suggest to people to read first. The sheer variety of recollections and stories in this book read like a "Who's Who" of wrestling (or good old southern rassling, as todays WWE sports-entertainment product would say). The only negative thing I can say is it is a slightly disjointed read, flitting from organisations (and countries at times), and jumping around chronologically, but when the content is this interesting that can be forgiven. Have ordered "Tales from a dirt road" by the same author, and cannot wait!
