Once again these guys have managed to write a wonderfully entertaining, opinionated and informative book reviewing a period of time in WWE history. As usual they work their way through tape after tape, sticking to the catalogue order, and provide a wonderful reference point and review of each tape they are given.
This book specifically deals with the years 1999 – 2002 or as these guys label it 'the death of the WWF'. Everything from the Austin heel turn, the failed invasion angle and the last tape/PPV released under the old WWF name is covered and explained.
Once again the writing style and fun laid back approach has created a book that i finished in just two sittings. Highly recommended to all Wrestling fans however same as last time make sure you have YouTube close by whilst reading as the temptation to look some of the matches and angles described up is often very high.

Volume 5 of this series and another classic encyclopaedic history look at WWE without the rose tinted glasses of the official publications, a healthy dose of realism and lot of spot on humour.
The next volume is the one a lot of us are waiting for, as many of 'my' generation skipped the Attitude era and didn't get back into WWE until 2002, which is where this volume finishes, however as someone who was bored of the Attitude era concentrating on the McMahon family at the expense of all else, this book was a great catch up, and I imagine fans of this era will be even more delighted.
My only complaint is that this series doesn't come out often enough - we're still waiting the third 'wrestler' volume after Ultimate Warrior and Hart Foundation, and the next volume of the Raw Series.
Continued fantastic work and I always buy the hard copy as well as Kindle editions .:)
