Chyna is, by far, the most incredible woman to ever enter the squared circle of the world of professional wrestling. She has a wonderful story to tell. Unfortunately, Scott Edelman is not the person to do it. This book never really scratched the surface of Chyna's story. I know a little bit of her own personal story, and, to be honest, I really didn't learn that much more with this book. Edelman is a fabulous writer in his magazine, but this book left too much to be desired. He took most of his information from old articles and video interviews. There wasn't any real in-depth reporting in this book. In essence, it was nothing more than an extended magazine article. Unfortunately, the best part of the book was the small Chyna trivia section at the end of the book.
I love wrestling and and love to see women like myself who have the same passion, who feel there are no boudaries in this manly world. I think this book proves that women have the same right as any man.
