"An absolute must-read for professional wrestling fans interested in learning what a life devoted to this thrilling sport is truly like.” (Midwest Book Review)
Honestly I didn't know a ton about Terry Funk, I obviously knew he was a legend but my exposure to him was a limited number of ECW matches and a little of the time he had with Foley in the late 90s.
With that said I really enjoyed the book. Everything struck me as completely believable and the book reads as if he was speaking to you. Parts of the book are very funny and it's always interesting. Basically if you have even a small amount of interest in the book I believe you'll enjoy this - just keep your expections in check. This isn't Have a Nice Day but it's much better than some of the other audiobooks avaialble on the subject.
The reader does a good job -- not sure if he's a fan of wrestling or not but he seems to hit the right tone for pretty much everything and even does an acceptable Dusty Rhodes, which is much more than I can say for Dusty's own book.
