"Professional wrestler Al Snow delivers highlights from his onscreen antics and never-before-heard tales from the road in this high-flying memoir spanning 30 years in the ring In the late 90s, wrestling journeyman Al Snow looked in the mirror and saw a man who needed help. A man whose reputation within the wrestling industry was excellent but whose career was going nowhere. Channeling his frustration into the gimmick for which he would become best known, Al began talking to (and through) a mannequin head. With Extreme Championship Wrestling, Al reinvented himself as an unhinged neurotic and became one of the hottest acts in the most cutting-edge promotion in America when wrestling's popularity was at its peak. This led to a journey back to the industry's main stage, World Wrestling Entertainment, during the wildly popular Attitude Era, and in the central role as a trainer and father figure on the MTV reality show, Tough Enough. Now, after 35 years in the industry, Al Snow tells the stories of the unbelievable yet true events that formed his career, from his in-ring recollections to out-of-ring escapades, including drunken midnight journeys with a vanfull of little people, overuse of Tasers at autograph signings, and continual attempts on his life by assorted members of the animal kingdom. Self Help is Al Snow at his best, delivering what everybody wants and needs."--… (lisätietoja)

If you want to read a good book about professional wrestling, I would read books written by Chris Jericho, Mick Foley and now Al Snow. There are a large number of interesting stories and anecdotes by Al from his wrestling career. (Frankly, some of them are pretty gross– –especially some of the “ribs” that wrestlers pull on each other.)

Al wrestled for the WWE, WCW and ECW as well as many independent wrestling organizations. Al also has some interesting stories and observations about various superstars including The Undertaker, Ric Flair, Vince McMahon, The Rock, Hulk Hogan, Eric Bischoff, Dixie Carter, CM Punk etc. If Al did not like a particular wrestler or wrestling owner, Al does not pull any punches.

The book is an excellent guide for anyone considering a career in professional wrestling. Al was a mentor in the Tough Enough wrestling series and he has some interesting stories about that experience.

Well written, Humorous in parts. Very candid.

As an old-school wrestling fan I enjoyed the hell out of this book. Al has a wealth of stories from his decades holding multiple jobs in the business. At times I think he's a bit hard on himself--there's a difference between holding yourself responsible for your own mistakes and feeling as if you're responsible for the entire world--but his honesty about his own choices makes for fascinating reading. I heartily recommend this. ( )
