This is a book for everyone with an interest in professional wrestling. It contains pages and pages of new material — stories, anecdotes, and 215 classic photos — none of which has been published in any previous edition and all in the voice of one of the legendary figures of the game. Every sentence has been thoroughly combed over and vetted in order to answer any questions previously asked by readers, or to correct and/or re-order the “facts” as Lou recalled them, and each chapter now has detailed endnotes to further supplement the text. Combine all those ingredients with all-new, spellbinding forewords by Charlie Thesz and Kit Bauman (comprising 26 pages), an extensive 32-page “addendum” in Lou’s own words, and a comprehensive name-and-subject index, and you have the definitive tome devoted to wrestling’s golden era.

  This is “no holds barred” material — far more open and truthful than anything ever written about professional wrestling.
