You'd probably be better off hitting yourself in the head with two dictionaries and reading a half-finished crossword found in a public trash can, but that's just my opinion. Your lobotomy.

Sadly, my local libraries don't keep up with a lot of wrestler's biographies. I owned both Foley autos and the Rock's book, but I don't really want to shell out the money for any more. Bret's book sounds like the biggest story, and I just learned J. J. Dillon has one, but I also would love to read the Dusty Rhodes book.

On that note, Foley's fiction isn't bad either. Probably not the greatest read in the world, but I thoroughly enjoyed Scooter; reminded me a lot of Palahniuk with a good dose of Foley's humor.

Just read Jericho's book and Edge's book. Everyone's heard that Jericho's book is great, and it is. I've got nothing to add. It's a keeper.

Edge, meanwhile, was one of those guys who wrote his book way too early. He didn't have the lengthy pre-WWE career that Jericho did, so the book is half the size of Jericho's (which only covered Jericho's pre-WWE career), and the second half of Edge's book is mostly just a detailed rundown of all the storylines he was in. The first half, covering his childhood and his start in wrestling, was more interesting. I had no idea Edge had been a WCW Saturday Night jobber (though only for one set of tapings) before getting his WWE deal. Worth a read, but not worth buying.

I read a few, but Jericho's was the best. I finished it in two nights. It was tough to put down because it was such a page turner. I agree about Edge - the first part was good, the second part not so much.

I am really looking ofrward to Jericho's next book - especially if he gets into the HBK/HHH that we all THINK held Jericho down. I wonder if he will end his second book the same way the first one ended - with him getting ready to come on stage for his second run.

"Marriage is like that show ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’, but it’s not funny. All the problems are the same, but you know instead of all the funny, pithy dialogue, everybody is really pissed off and tense. Marriage is like a tense, unfunny version of 'Everybody Loves Raymond', only it doesn't last 22 minutes. It lasts forever."

I got the Hart book for Valentines and have gone about 100 pages in. So far its a pretty decent read. He admits to being mediocre early on, and hating half his family. SO, that's refreshing so far.

Has anybody read the Bill Watts book, "The Cowboy and the Cross"? I know he's born again, but I would love if his book detailed his promoter career. I can't imagine how many great stories he'd have.

I just moved and my cable is out (and will be out for a while, sadly.) I'm looking for a tape of last night's Raw. It seemed like a great show. I have a BOATLOAD of wrestling tapes and I'd be more than willing to trade 1 for 1.
