Publisher's Summary

World Wrestling Entertainment has named Chris Jericho one of the top 10 wrestlers - and one of the top five talkers - of all time. Certainly, the past six years have been spectacular for Jericho. After a sluggish return from his 2005 sabbatical, Jericho found new inspiration in watching No Country for Old Men. and completely reinvented his character - ultimately going on to capture three world WWE titles.

The Best in the World chronicles some of the incredible and often preposterous highlights of Jericho's recent career, including how Mickey Rourke challenged Jericho to a match then backed out; his escape from the 2010 Icelandic volcanoes in a broken-down, European rental-car shuttle; his encounters with Bob Barker, Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica, Al Sharpton, and Mike Tyson; and his on-again, off-again relationship with WWE chief Vince McMahon.

Good book -- Jericho is a bit of a jerk -- but good read

Good book for the wrestling fan. Lots of good stuff from one of the greatest ever. But some of the routine out-of-the-ring antics of "The Best in the World at What He Does" really shines a light on why he makes such a great on-camera villain.

Among the Best Wrestling Autobiographies

Would you consider the audio edition of The Best in the World to be better than the print version?

Yes because I only had to listen.

What other book might you compare The Best in the World to and why?

Mick Foley's books. They are very similar in humor and story telling.

Which character – as performed by Roger Wayne – was your favorite?

Chris Jericho of course.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did listen in one sitting and enjoyed it immensely.

Any additional comments?

Drinking orange juice while listening to tales of a wrestler's trunks coming off mid-match can be painful to your sinuses.

Great book and well narrated.

There are scant few wrestler autobiographies available in audiobook format and fewer still where the subject doesn't rely completely on a ghostwriter, making it that much more of a treat this one exists to give a listen. It's on par with Jericho's previous books and although not narrated by Chris, Roger Wayne does a great job with the narration. A few very minor mispronunciations aside you'll enjoy listening to him for 12 hours. I even scoped out what else he narrated because I enjoyed his style. So, YEAH BOY, this goes on my short list of must own wrestling audiobooks.

Y2J does it again

Jericho proves once again that he is a master story teller. He seems to really take you there when he tells the story. The Way he writes andthe expressions that he uses to describe stories is very unique. The only problem I have with this book is that Chris Jericho himself isn’t the narrator. With that being said, the narrator does a fantastic job in conveying Jericho‘s message and emotion and doing the voices of the people that Jericho encounters. There were long stretches of the book where I forgot that it wasn’t Chris Jericho himself narrating it because the narrator does such a good job. Can’t wait for the next book.

I feel like I know Chris Jericho now!

I loved this book! it's funny, entertaining, informative and gives you a fly on the wall perspective into the going on behind some of the best wrestling moments! you can't help but to have appreciation and respect for wrestlers and entertainers for some of the crazy things they do just to give us a good show. And with all Jerchio has accomplished it gave me a sense of confidence that one could really attempt to be the best in the world at whatever they want to do. Read it, if for the comedy alone!

Best in the world

Is there anything Y2J cant do? Great book. Jericho goes in depth sharing some great stories from one of his runs in WWE. Just a great book that any wrestling fan would love to listen to. Full time Wrestler, podcast host, Author, Has his own band. Jericho just makes it look so easy. With so many self help books out there Io think Jericho is actually the true meaning of inspiring. You can do anything you put your mind to. Anything.
