There are some interesting behind the scenes stories in here. If you read the dirtsheets regularly or watched the shoot interviews of the ECW guys then you probably know over half the stuff in here already. It has been an interesting book.
The biggest problem is with the editing. There are way too many spelling errors and punctuation errors. There seems to be some kind of error every two to three pages. One of the biggest is Ric Flair is always spelled as Rie Flair (with an "e"). Other names of wrestlers and companies are spelled wrong. Twice in the book the numbers 111 are use instead of the contraction "I'll". Such as "...because Fve been very public that 111 never work for Vince again,"... Yes that is right Fve instead of I've and 111 instead of I'll in the same sentence. One other word that may need an explanation is that "forewer" is supposed to be forever, as in the "Forever Hardcore Documentary DVD".
The two star rating is because of the things that this book is clearly lacking. It is a nice little story about ECW but there are some glaring mistakes. One of the first that comes to mind seems like a simple thing but it is one of those deals where if they cannot even get this one detail right, how can you be sure the rest of what they are saying is correct? They talk about Cactus Jack hitting Terry Funk with a chair that was on fire and claim that the flaming seat pad flew off of the chair and hit Funk. What really happened is that Cactus had taped a towel to the chair and lit it and the tape melted so the flaming towel came flying off of the chair. Again, small thing but it is SO widely known that it was a towel that came off of the chair one has to wonder how solid the rest of the information presented is going to be.
Add to that the incredible number of typos and you can understand why I gave the book two stars. For starers, throughout the ENTIRE BOOK, Ric Flair,...
Overall it's a pretty good read on the history of ECW. If you are a huge fan of the promotion you probably already know pretty much all the stuff in here but it's still nice to read and take a trip down memory lane. If you don't know much about the promotion it covers most of the highlights through the years. I would rate it higher but it is just flat out wrong in some places. Totally botches covering the first PPV Barely Legal by getting the opening match totally wrong saying not only were The Eliminators champs going in against the Dudleys but that Saturn was injured and only ran in at the end when he in truth was the highlight of the match. There are a few more errors like this and when they are wrong they are really wrong. Aside from stuff like that though it isn't too bad. There are at least 2 other ECW books out there that are better though.
