World Wrestling Entertainment has named Chris Jericho one of the top 10 wrestlers - and one of the top five talkers - of all time. Certainly, the past six years have been spectacular for Jericho. After a sluggish return from his 2005 sabbatical, Jericho found new inspiration in watching No Country for Old Men. and completely reinvented his character - ultimately going on to capture three world WWE titles.
The Best in the World chronicles some of the incredible and often preposterous highlights of Jericho's recent career, including how Mickey Rourke challenged Jericho to a match then backed out; his escape from the 2010 Icelandic volcanoes in a broken-down, European rental-car shuttle; his encounters with Bob Barker, Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica, Al Sharpton, and Mike Tyson; and his on-again, off-again relationship with WWE chief Vince McMahon.

Good book for the wrestling fan. Lots of good stuff from one of the greatest ever. But some of the routine out-of-the-ring antics of "The Best in the World at What He Does" really shines a light on why he makes such a great on-camera villain.
the narrator is brillisnt. after the 1st chapter you don't miss Jericho voicr. well written highly entertaining. a must for wwe fans
Yes because I only had to listen.
Mick Foley's books. They are very similar in humor and story telling.
Chris Jericho of course.
I did listen in one sitting and enjoyed it immensely.
Drinking orange juice while listening to tales of a wrestler's trunks coming off mid-match can be painful to your sinuses.
It was a great experience listening to Jericho's stories. He's one of my heroes and I enjoyed every minute of it....and was sad when it was over. I wanted to hear more. thank you
This book was amazing for any Chris Jericho fan. It touched on his wrestling, music and personal life. I think it would have been better if he was the narrator for this book. Roger Wayne didn't do a bad job. You could just tell he wasn't a wrestling fan as he butchered names of superstars, wrestling moves, referee names and Famous Jericho Phrases
I am not much of a Chris Jericho fan. But gave his book a chance. I'm glad I did. It was very entertaining and interesting. The narrator did a good job as well. we'll worth the money!
Listened to over 200 books and none have been this entertaining or captivating. Great work on the narration. Simply put "Best period".
