Chris Jericho: A Lion’s Tale (book review)

This is the first in a series of books by wrestler/rocker/funnyman Chris Jericho. The second book is Undisputed and the third one is The Best in the World (which i reviewed a few weeks back)

This book cover Jericho’s life up to 2000. Chris Jericho takes you on a journey from Canada, Mexico, Germany, Japan, and the US. Its a heartfelt story to see how he never gave up and the things he had to go through in life to be a better wrestler and person.

Each part of the book covers a different country Jericho traveled to. Its full of hilarious stories and Y2J’s sense of humor is a unique one. If you get his humor then you will definately enjoy this book.

I highly recommend reading this book before getting into Undisputed (which i will review next) and The Best in the World. I made the mistake of reading The Best in the World first and even though the books are not really in chronological order, i still wish i wouldve started with this one.

Anyways, get this book and you wont be dissapointed with the hilarity of Jericho’s story tellling.

Chuck Pfarrer: Seal Target Geronimo (book review)

Chuck Pfarrer writes an awesome book about the inside story of Seal Team Six and how they killed Osama. But this book is much more than just the Geronimo story.

Pfarrer goes deep intk the training that is required to be a Seal. All of which is some highly classified information off where they prepare to go into battle and all the training required before even being considered for a Seal Six member. Training takes at least 2 years to complete.

There has been a number of books and movies about this story but this one is the complete package. There is a lot of preparation that goes on behind the scenes before a mission and a lot of that is discussed here. Including some of the codes that Seals use for communication, the meetings that go on underground in sound proof chambers and a lot lot more.

Pfarrer wraps the book up with every single detail about the raid on Osama’s compound and what happened afterward. Some of the Seal Team Six members were exposed, which was something that was never meant to happen.

Very interesting book if you are into all that military and secret weapons stuff.
