    I sat on the floor and perused it at B&N.
    It's all comedy. His section on various martial arts and the disrespect he shows to all arts besides wrestling was funny.

    I actually read this. It's pretty good motivational material. This is coming from a guy that hates chael.

    I read it. Pretty funny. It's mostly comedy with some serious stuff. It's like listening to Chael sell a fight but in a book format.

    I read it. Might be the only copy in Brazil, lol.
    Nothing relevant about it for me, other than when he talks about his father, but a nice read to kill some time.

    I like Shale and I like listening to him talk. But the book was only okay for me. It was never incredibly awesome... Never that one or two moments where you're just like I'm so glad I bought this. With hours and hours of footage of Chael speaking and saying basically the same things the book is almost unnecessary.
