I learned a lot about Butcher Vachon and his career that I was not aware of prior to reading the book. I'd recommend for any wrestling fan.

I thought this book would have included more of his stints in the WWF. His wife's input was not really necessary in this book. He mentions other books that he wrote which contain other stories, but I am unaware of any other books. The book did not live up to my expectations. There was also repetition with his getting started in the wrestling business.
