Other than the history of Vince McMahon Sr and Jr, theres nothing new here. The introduction and first chapters discussing the NWA is some great information that most of the know-it-alls probably didn't know. There are some obvious mistakes in facts such as Bret Hart's "4 year reign as world champion". If you look pass the obvious mistakes, it is not a bad book. I wouldn't buy it for more than $10 though.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

It was ok
The book was o.k. The intro gives you kind of a weird feeling in your stomach which gets you into the book. Then all of a sudden it skips to short history of prowrestling which is necessary to understand the book. That is one thing I'll give the author. He'll mention somebody and give you a good insight into who they are. A lot of the stories are more for the casual wrestling fan. There are not that many juicy insider stories, although the few there are-are interesting, and it's more about wrestling in general as opposed to a biography of Vince McMahon. If you're a casual fan you should buy it, but if you're a hardcore fan you can skip it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

A quick read
The book fills in the details somewhat for a story most 'smarks' should know by now. However, the book is a quick, enjoyable look at Vinnie Mac and his wrestling empire as culled from various sources. I just wish the approach would've been a bit more orderly as the author frequently skips back and forth between various time periods.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
