Publisher's Summary

Exploring the steroid-fueled world of professional wrestling, this riveting chronicle lays bare the devastating events that led to the 2007 murder-suicide of Chris Benoit, his wife Nancy, and their seven-year-old son, Daniel. Benoit's performance-enhancing drug addiction - massive amounts of doctor-prescribed human growth hormone were found in Benoit’s home - and subsequent suicide proved to be the tipping point for the professional wrestling world, resulting in unprecedented scrutiny of the sport’s subpar health and safety standards. Using public records, dozen of interviews with those inside and outside of wrestling, and investigative results, this authoritative analysis provides an uncompromising look at the price athletes pay in this rough-and-tumble world.

The author has an axe to grind.

Would you try another book from Irvin Muchnick and/or Richard Tatum?

No. Muchnick puts more effort into pointing fingers at the WWE rather than focusing on objectively describing the Benoit tragedy as a whole. Very disappointed.

Would you ever listen to anything by Irvin Muchnick again?

Based on his biased handling of this subject, I can't trust his opinions.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Chris & Nancy?

The author's preamble was far too lengthy.

Any additional comments?

If you're looking for objective coverage of the Benoit story, this is not for you. The author spends endless time guessing what the WWE knew. You can get more unbiased details from Wikipedia.

Too little for one book?

If you could sum up Chris & Nancy in three words, what would they be?

Interesting, repetitive unsatisfying

Would you be willing to try another book from Irvin Muchnick? Why or why not?


Which character – as performed by Richard Tatum – was your favourite?


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not Really

Any additional comments?

A chance for a dig at the WWE (which to be fair is merited) and well researched, but very repetitive.

Eye opener!!

It was a hard listen, both in following the story and the sad content. If you have the time then give it a go!!
