Fast and fairly priced

Books came faster than I expected. I gave this as a gift and he enjoyed it.

An Outstanding History....

I grew up with St. Louis wrestling in the 50's and 60's. This was an excellent history which provided a behind the scenes look into wrestling as a business.

NWA Forever

one of the greatest/best wrestling books of all-time. THE must-have for any true wrestling fan!

Phenominal!

This is easily the best wrestling book on the market and I've read them all. Hornbaker's ability to trace the complex lineage of the NWA--it's formation and ability to universalize the World Championship--is amazing. In many ways this book is the "History of Pro Wrestling in the U.S."--without the NWA there is no wrestling as it has become. That the author has been able to seemlessly and imformatively link the vast NWA terrioritoy system together for the reader to understand is an accomplishment in its own right.
