The genius in this book (and the author, Billy Robinson) lies NOT in the way he communicates to the reader (there are many context errors, self-congratulatory comments and blatant misspellings), it lies in a story of a man telling his story, unflinchingly, and the story of concept (catch as catch can) that many men (some of the more prominent catch wrestlers are mentioned) and their styles, attitudes and dispositions are described in a crude (meaning as in writing style), but honest, and very real, manner.
This book is written for pro wrestling or MMA geeks like me. But anyone who enjoys reading about post WWII history and the sacrifice a person (or a group of people) is willing to endure to chase a far off dream will enjoy this book, warts and all.
