Has anybody had the chance to read this book yet? I'm just getting started on it and I have to say, given that Bischoff was pushing it as a much "fairer" look at the rise and fall of WCW than Death of WCW, and that I really didn't think there was much left to say about the subject, it's really good so far. The author looks heavily at Turner and the business side of WCW, as well as all the booking bullshit we all already know about, so there's actually a fresh take here.

Has anyone read it? Any thoughts? I recommend it to anybody looking for a new wrestling book to read.

Here's the author talking to John Pollock about the book.

Nope. I don't see how its going to uncover anything that the millions of documentaries and personal accounts don't say already.

Those 'millions' of other projects don't have a heavy focus on interviewing executives and production staff from Turner/WCW at the time. It's a totally different animal.
