This was a fantastic listen. I have been involved in the sport of wrestling for over 40 years and this is, by far, the best fictional piece on our sport I have ever read/heard (Yes, even better than Vision Quest!). The technical description of the matches and the preparation for the matches was dead on. Aside from the wrestling the interaction between the characters and the everyday struggles the boys endure are common themes that everyone will be interested in. This is a must read for every wrestling fan and fun for everyone else.

I bought this book for my son who is a seventeen year old high school wrestler. It is a great book for any kid who is a wrestler and who is going through normal teenage problems. It is a little too heavy on the drama and I wish that it had had more action descriptions of the matches but it was very good. The big problem with the book is the ending. It was a terrible ending and left me very disatisfied.
