Great Stories and Straight Talk From a Legend

Terry Funk has risen in my estimation over the years to become my favorite wrestler all-time along with Roddy Piper. Funk holds the edge regarding in-ring performance while Piper holds the edge in promos. Both have participated in numerous outrageous antics that have kept me entertained for decades.

This book is a candid look at life as a professional wrestler. Funk doesn't refrain from revealing the less glamorous aspects of the business. Bad payoffs, long drives, and countless injuries are part of the game but it doesn't obscure his obvious reverence for his chosen profession.

Several parts of this book are laugh out loud funny. The stories contain lessons on life applicable to everyone.
