Exploring the steroid-fueled world of professional wrestling, this riveting chronicle lays bare the devastating events that led to the 2007 murder-suicide of Chris Benoit, his wife Nancy, and their seven-year-old son, Daniel. Benoit's performance-enhancing drug addiction - massive amounts of doctor-prescribed human growth hormone were found in Benoit’s home - and subsequent suicide proved to be the tipping point for the professional wrestling world, resulting in unprecedented scrutiny of the sport’s subpar health and safety standards. Using public records, dozen of interviews with those inside and outside of wrestling, and investigative results, this authoritative analysis provides an uncompromising look at the price athletes pay in this rough-and-tumble world.

No. Muchnick puts more effort into pointing fingers at the WWE rather than focusing on objectively describing the Benoit tragedy as a whole. Very disappointed.
Based on his biased handling of this subject, I can't trust his opinions.
The author's preamble was far too lengthy.
If you're looking for objective coverage of the Benoit story, this is not for you. The author spends endless time guessing what the WWE knew. You can get more unbiased details from Wikipedia.
