A country boy from Alabama, Ken Stabler became the leader of the renegade Oakland Raiders of the 1970s: partier, womanizer, and cool, Super Bowl winning quarterback. Upon retirement from football, Stabler came to renounce and regret his partying days, devoting himself to his daughters and grandchildren while suffering, perhaps for decades, from CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy). ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare

Published: ECW Press - October 14th, 2014

Required reading for fans of professional wrestling and pop culture. Written by two of the sport's most trusted journalists, follow the rise of Ted Turner's World Championship Wrestling from the late 1980s to their spectacular demise in the early 2000s.
Just how did a company with billionaire Ted at the helm crumble? It turns out the scripted drama happening in front of the cameras often has nothing on what's going on behind the scenes. Political maneuvering, ego clashes, and rampant drug and alcohol abuse make the body slams look like child's play. ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll

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
