Chris Jericho is a modern-day Renaissance Man. He has been a highly decorated professional wrestler for over 25 years, a platinum-selling rock star with his metal band Fozzy, a television host of the game show Downfall, and a successful contestant on ABC's Dancing with the Stars. Even though this is Jericho's third memoir, he has no shortage of stories to tell. Readers will get a glimpse into the inner workings of the WWE's Vince McMahon and his media empire, life on the road of the heavy metal circuit, training for DWTS, and so much more. Jericho doesn't go easy on himself either, as he copes with his frequent drinking binges, time away from his family, and nearly being detained in Brazil after kicking the flag during a WWE show. Who knew that was a felony? ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll

Kurson's narrative is straightforward and exciting, as he tells of the search for the Golden Fleece, lost ship of the remarkable pirate, Joseph Bannister. Bannister quite suddenly and inexplicably gave up his life as a well-respected ship's captain to turn pirate. Although he could rightfully have taken a place alongside Blackbeard, his name has been lost to history. The search for Bannister's ship is fascinating, as are the characters conducting it. If you are an armchair adventurer, this is the book for you. Out in June. ~ Reviewed by Erik Barnum

The currently-undefeated UFC Women's Champion has quite a story to tell already. Having barely survived a traumatic birth, Rousey didn't speak until she was well into her toddler years. Her mother was a world judo champion, and her hard-working father was her hero. After a tragic accident, her father suffers an incredibly degenerative back injury, eventually committing suicide. Finding strength and resolve after her loss, Ronda follows in her mother's footsteps. Rousey becomes obsessed with judo, and eventually a 2-time Olympian.

After successfully transferring to MMA, she single-handedly convinces the UFC to start a Women's division. Written with very candid insights into her personal life, each chapter is a small, intense vignette that propels the reader forward. ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll

A real-life David vs. Goliath tale told through the prism of the wacky world of pro wrestling. Daniel Bryan is a 5 ft.-8 in. tall former vegan with a giant unkempt beard, an average build, and a heart 3 sizes too big. He is in no way your typical WWE wrestler. But through hard work, perseverance, and simply being a genuine person, he has become one of the icons of his generation. This memoir follows Bryan’s path from the Pacific Northwest, to Japan, to California, to finally the WWE, and everywhere in between. Humorous road stories, personal struggles, health concerns, relationship woes, and his eventual odds-defying win at Wrestlemania XXX are wonderfully told straight from the “goat’s” mouth. ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll
