Okay, this might seem totally out of left field for me, but I loved this book. Stories about professional wrestling fascinate me, and this biography of Jim Ross is a wild ride from start to finish. There is a moment in this book when Jim Ross recounts his first meeting with Duane “The Rock” Johnson, and it is completely unforgettable. If you love professional wrestling, you’ll love this book. If you don’t know anything about professional wrestling but are curious about whether people are actually being slammed with metal folding chairs, you’ll love this book.
