The two-time bestselling author, wrestler and metal rocker returns with another insightful and hilarious memoir.
Inspired by Anton Chigurh, Javier Bardem's character in No Country for Old Men, Chris Jericho decided to put down his guitar, ease off on the red-carpet appearances in Hollywood and return to ring. What followed were the best three years of his wrestling career.
A trilogy that began with A Lion's Tale and was followed by the bestselling Undisputed now concludes with a behind-the-scenes account of Jericho becoming WON WRESTLER OF THE YEAR for two consecutive years in 2008 and 2009. The book also features the final word on Jericho's feuds with Shawn Michaels and Rey Mysterio, his run-in with Mickey Rourke, life hanging out with the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, Mike Tyson and Lars Ulrich, and the resurrection of his band Fozzy, which saw them play to huge audiences in the UK and Europe and support Metallica.

This book is a masterpiece. One of the best books I've ever read. Whilst I don't read that much, I have read quite a few books over my years and I have to say I enjoyed this a disgusting amount. It's an honest recollection of Y2J's experiences over the years 2000 to about 2014. He is genuine and humble and doesn't only tell you about the good times. He will tell you about embarrassing mistakes he's made or rude things he's done to fellow wrestlers that he feels guilty about or learned from. This book was clearly written just as much for himself as it was for us and it really shows.
I highly recommend this fantastic book.
