Publisher's Summary

Three-time New York Times best-selling author and six-time WWE champion Chris Jericho shares 20 of his most valuable lessons for achieving your goals and living the life you want, jam-packed with fantastic stories and the classic off-the-wall, laugh-out-loud Jericho references he's famous for.

Chris Jericho has known what he wanted out of life since he was a teenager: to be a pro wrestler and to be in a rock 'n' roll band. Most of his high school friends felt that he lacked the tools necessary to get into either, but Chris believed in himself. With the wise words of Master Yoda echoing through his head ("Do or do not. There is no try."), he made it happen. As a result, Chris has spent a lifetime doing instead of merely trying, managing to achieve his dreams while learning dozens of invaluable lessons along the way.

No Is a Four-Letter Word distills more than two decades of showbiz wisdom and advice into 20 easy-to-listen-to chapters. From developing a strong work ethic, thanks to WWE chairman Vince McMahon, remembering to always look like a star from Gene Simmons of KISS, learning to let it go when the America's Funniest Home Videos hosting gig goes to his rival, adopting a sense of perpetual reinvention from the late David Bowie, making sure to sell himself like his NHL-legend father Ted Irvine taught him, or going the extra mile to meet Keith Richards (with an assist from Jimmy Fallon), Chris has learned countless lessons during his decades-long career. Now, in the hopes that those same principles might help and inspire his legions of fans, Chris has decided to share them while recounting the fantastic and hilarious stories that led to the birth of these rules. The result is a fun, entertaining, practical, and inspiring audiobook from the man with many scarves but only one drive: to be the best. After listening to No Is a Four-Letter Word, you'll discover that you might have what it takes to succeed as well.... You just need to get out there and do it. That's what Jericho would do.

GOAT is also a Four Letter Word

Even though this book picks up right after the famous chronicle called, The Best In The World At What I Have No Idea, this book still covers many of the earlier days of Jericho. Another must read from the GOAT.

It’s the episode of Talk is Jericho you always wanted, where Y2J is his guest.

Awesome read, awesome guy

Listened to this in one sitting while doing the dishes. I'm not much of a wrestling fan, mostly remember the WWF days, and I love music in a very general way, but I still enjoyed every page of stories and practical wisdom. What I like best of all is the fact you built a career from the ground up in two notoriously fickle and demanding industries. I don't care about wealth, but I have a lot of respect for this Jericho Work Ethic, you bust your ass but you're having a blast doing it, so hard work and pride come naturally. It's hard working your way up, and when you're faced with what seems like an insurmountable dilemma, successful people find a way because they have to. It's a very Viking-esque mentality, so in my book of Britishisms, Junior is a stone heavier than a head of lettuce.

If you aren’t a wrestling fan you likely aren’t buying

This is a book with a message I think everyone can stand to hear, unfortunately with so much awesome wrestling history as part of it, I am limited with who I can recommend it to.

I wish they would just “drink it in, man”
