Former NFL player Ben Utecht's memory is riddled with gaping holes caused by countless blows to the head. He finds solace in faith and family, yet cannot renounce the game that gave him a Super Bowl ring, and without his full recollection, sacked him in the end zone. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare

I couldn't put this book down! Not only is dogsledding, Arctic-living, and fiercely independent Blair Braverman a total badass, but she's a wonderful writer, too. In Braverman's autobiography, she grapples with issues of self-preservation, heritage, and gender as she attempts to navigate a male-dominated society. As she confronts her personal trajectory head-on, she constructs a portrait of the relationship between notions of "patriarchy" and "feminism" that helps to situate her experiences and decisions in a fully-realized coming-of-age arc. ~ Reviewed by Aubrey Restifo

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
