For countless fans of professional wrestling and mixed martial arts, Brock Lesnar has long been known for his freakish athleticism, mind-blowing speed, and meteoric rise to the top.

I loved the narration in this book. It's a very easy listen. It's written for the common man. It gives great incite into Brock's way of thinking. I'll recommend it to any Brock Lesnar or wrestling fan.

Originally published in 1973, the groundbreaking, uninhibited story of Isadora Wing and her desire to fly free caused a national sensation. In The New York Times, Henry Miller compared it to his own classic, Tropic of Cancer and predicted that "this book will make literary history..." It has sold more than 12-million copies. Now, after 30 years, the revolutionary novel known as Fear of Flying still stands as a timeless tale of self-discovery, liberation, and womanhood.

The book was very well written. The narrator did an excellent job. At no point did her portrayals feel robotic or inauthentic. But the story itself is lackluster. It's nothing but the author complaining and whining for hundreds of pages. Nothing really happens. There are no interesting characters and there's nothing controversial about the sex. The narrator is an obvious feminist but her actions are in complete contrast. There's direction here. I could only make it to the halfway mark and I struggled to get that far.
