Publisher's Summary

From beloved WWE champion AJ Mendez Brooks comes a raw and inspirational memoir about how her greatest weakness became the very means for her success, in the ring and in life.

Recently retired WWE superstar AJ Brooks is a powerhouse - strong, quirky, and totally confident. But that wasn't always the case. Growing up, AJ was a quiet girl trying to act "normal" when she felt anything but. As her family struggled with drug addiction, poverty, and mental illness, she found escape through comic books and video games, inspired by the tough and unconventional female characters. It wasn't until she discovered the WWE that she learned superheroes could be real.

Determined to become the superhero she'd always needed, AJ trained and sacrificed for years to finally achieve her dream. Yet she quickly faced industry pressure to play the role of the damsel in distress and dress more provocatively to cater to male fans. But she fought back and created an ass-kicking alter ego that was a genuine representation of herself: nerdy, enthusiastic, and a little bit crazy.

With humor and tremendous heart, AJ opens up for the first time about her harrowing struggle to understand her demons and gain control over her life. What most people view as a hardship, AJ embraced as inspiration for her superhero persona.

Charting her journey from a scrappy girl in an unstable home to empowered WWE champion, Crazy Is My Superpower is an unflinchingly honest and bravely confessional story about the long road to self-acceptance.

    "not what I expected"

    I was expecting a book about wrestling and life on the road... I ended up getting a story of one persons life long internal struggle and how they turned their negative life into one positive after another. this book came away inspiring me.

    this book is about overcoming stereotypes and being who you are... if I ever have a daughter, I would want her to listen to this book.

    Story
    "Changed My Life!"
    What did you love best about Crazy Is My Superpower?

    I love the inspirational stories of overcoming obstacles in your life. I was also homeless and have mental illness so I really felt like someone else was telling MY life story. I love how she put her heart and soul into this book and I enjoyed the realness of it. There are many amazing lessons you can take away from this book and I encourage everyone to go out and buy it!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    AJ because she reminds me a lot of myself. She had the same personal struggles that I've dealt with in my life. I'm glad that she was strong enough to overcome those obstacles and even joke about a lot of things.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I honestly enjoyed the book as a whole. There wasn't a moment where I wasn't inspired.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    How to turn your pain into art

    "The best audio book I've ever listened to...."

    Touching, raw, uninhibited, hilarious, loveable and overall amazing book and narrator......for someone as myself who grew up in a similar fashion with Hispanic parents, this book touched me in places and emotions I haven't felt in years. I'm man enough to say I teared up hearing her life story and the struggles one had to go through to get as far as she did. Kudos to you AJ for making such an amazing book.

    "Excellent. So glad I listened."

    Great book. Fascinating detail and brutally honest. What an amazing woman. I liked how she gave a full picture of the many obstacles in her life and an open assessment of how she tried to deal with each hurdle. She unflinchingly shows her mistakes as well as triumphs. A woman to relate to on every level.
