I would highly recommend this book to any wrestling fans, it manages to be both informative and entertaining. It includes some useful background to the matches which helped me to appreciate them in context. I like the rating system they use as it is a handy guide for comparison and reflection on the overall quality of the matches and ppv's.
I cannot praise this series and these authors enough. The volumes are more than the video guide they profess to be - they in fact provide a near chronological walk through WWF / WWE history via PPVs, video events and so on. With each match and event reviewed in detail, with an honest look without any any rose tinted glasses and some killer humour. My only criticism is that there is such a gap between release dates!
Cannot wait for the next volume - hours and hours of enjoyment reading these volumes. Well done guys.
Having read a few of these books the standard is always very high with well written and insightful reviews given to a years worth of WWF videos.
Volume three covers the WWF during the years 1993-1996 as the new generation featuring the likes of Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels and Diesel replace the old guard many of whom have jumped ship to the big spending competition WCW.
As said before the standard of these books is very, very high and they make for good value. One slight complaint would be they do tend to be slightly on the negative however to be fair to the guys I don't have to watch some of the dross they review so fair play to them.
This book covers the least commercially successful period in the WWF's history, but also probably my favourite period as a fan. The detail in every segment of every video is fantastic and brought back fantastic memories.
