Rip off. Wrestling fans Beware!!
on 2 September 2012
Since witing this review, I have noticed the people buying this on kindle have much higher apprication for the book. I can only put that down to the price difference , in Kindle it is under £5 which I would pay for this book. I bought the hardcover (it is an insult to call it that as the book is tiny) which is more then triple the price, which is in no way worth the content.
This book is a complete Rip off. It is ridiculous. It says the book is 336 pages. That is a lie the book is 211 pages including the acknowledgments. Even then the pages are so small the book could pass for a paperback! So that is 211 pages of wide margins. There is more white space on the page then actual words. That fact that they charged me £15.95 for a book worth £5.95 annoys me more than anything else. As for the wrestling aspect of the book let face it if you are buying this book then you are or were at some point a wrestling fan. The wrestling part of the book starts in the last 2 chapters. About 30 of these tiny pages. This book is a glorified introduction to Bookers second book he is planning! All wrestling fans should avoid this book. Unless you are the most die hard Booker T fan and must know every aspect of his childhood, teen and his early 20 which he spent in crime, in which case you might still be disappointed, because it say the story will be told in the narrative meaning many of the incidents are exaggerated or untrue. Brock got a lot of flack for the length of his book, Bookers is by comparison shorter and contains less about wrestling. This is a story about redemption but with this I feel Booker is still trying to hussel people.
