I would have ave it 5 stars but the support writer and his over the top monologues leading up to wrestlemania 30 are ridiculous even as a wrestling fan it s too much The rest of the book written by Bryan Danielson is Crack-Up Comics Collection (Bendy) great The whole reason I bought the book uality reading Hopefully there s to his career that extends to another book Great storyreat book I am a Bryan Danielson fan I say that because I stopped watching WWE many years ago then one day when I was channel surfing I can across the Wrestling Channel which was showing some company called ROH Ring Of Honour There in the main event between 3 incredible but little known wrestlers Christopher Daniels Loki and of course Bryan Danielson This match blew me away Loki with hard hitting high flying attacks Bryan with mat based wrestling that we never see any and Daniels bridging the Pokémon Primers: 123 Book, 2 gap between them I was hooked I kept me a wrestling fan for a few years Even though Bryan Danielson joined the WWE and became Daniel Bryan I still would do a uick internet search of how he was doing in a land where size and promo skills were prized much that the wrestling aspect All of this is documented brilliantly in this book in Bryan s own wordsThe book is honestly written and much like Bryan s Yes man characters written without ego What I mean by this is Bryan is always showing respects to wrestlers he was working with in how far they were ahead of him in terms of skills or calling him matches ok toood when to me and many of the fan who saw those matches would probobly be calling them the best matches we had seen and definitely the best matches of the nightHe talks openly about his early family life to becoming a wrestling fan and knowing this is what he wanted to do with his life Starting out learning the ropes and about life in Teen Titans Go!: Their Greatest Hijinks general then homing his craft to making a name for himself in the Indi scene to his two runs in the WWE Because of his honesty I really empathised with his I felt his passion for wrestling his frustration for not being appreciated for his work and I was over the moon for him when his hard work finally paid off He does not accuse anyone of maliciously trying to hold his down but felt he was notiven the chance to show what he could doI have 2 small criticisms about this book The first is that the intro to each chapter was written from a media perspective about Daniel Bryan the character the week leading up to Wrestlemania I thought was completely unnecessary Bryan was perfectly capable and did pass that information on better in his own words The second is there are no colour photos in the book not even a page in the middle of the book where people like to have photo pages this does not The are a few pictures throughout the book do that is not a big thing for me My kids did like the flip book style of Bryan doing his yes chant in the bottom right hand corner that was pretty coolThis is a reat and honest account of Bryan s accomplishment and the physical and political obstacles Bryan had to endure to reach the top If you are a fan of his Indi work like me this is huge section of the book WWE fans will love it as well This book was exactly as you expected it to be uality Daniel Bryan is by far my favourite wrestler so this book is essential reading and as you can imagine it doesn t disappoint at all Bryan regails us with his entire career and personal life moments of obvious importance all encased with the progression of the WrestleMania week and the festivities leading up to itEvery chapter begins with a brief excerpt from Bryan s Wrestlemania week th.

At cleverly ties together with whatever Bryan subseuently s talks about in that chapter until eventually the two meet at the climax to tell the story of that Wrestlemania night There is nothing here that isn t insightful or of Sensational Saga Stink Pb great interest as a wrestling fan or enjoyable if you aren t For me this is clearly one of the best books I have read in years Sure it s a WWE release and thus is drentched in the framework of the WWE narative and their family WWE Universe which can be a tad sacarine sweet at times But it actually works with this tale of being the underdog who fought the odd s too make it to the top of the company But if you re not a wrestling fan it still hit s home as the tale he weaves is one of a determined everyman fighting for areater role in not just wrestling but life though the book does a comendable job to explain wrestling culture and jargon to non wrestling people so the tale isn t lost on outsidersI would easily recommend this to a non wrestling fan as it s such a solid story that you can t help but route for Daniel Bryan but if Daniel Bryan is your favourite like me and you know the wrestling culture then without a doubt this is the story for you Released in July 2015 Yes My Improbable Journey to the Main Event of WrestleMania is Daniel Bryan s behind the scenes story From his beginnings as a child wanting to wrestle to his ten years on the circuit before finally making it in WWE this book chronicles all the hard work values influences uniue life choices and leading to his watershed week at WrestleMania 30The book is 320 pages divided into 26 chapters with each chapter typically ranging from 15 20 pages long This is an official WWE sanctioned release so the use of WWE photographs has been allowed in addition to photos of Bryan s independent circuit days and ones of a personal nature tooThe story is essentially made up of two separate voices There is the third person viewpoint which opens each chapter and then the second and bulk of the book is Daniel Bryan in first person Each voice also takes place in different time frames with the third person starting a few weeks prior to WrestleMania 30 and Bryan s starting from his birth and upbringingThe third person viewpoint observes the short term journey to WrestleMania part of his story following him around press events signings hotel rooms and even what he Blunderingly Brilliant (The Jackson Payne Adventures Book 2) goes shopping The first person sections on the other hand detail the long term part of the journey how he learned his skills rose up through the independents fought around the worldot to WWE LGB How To Be A Superhero got leto went back around the world back to WWE Anti/Hero got leto back around the world and finally back to WWEUnsurprisingly Daniel Bryan s own voice is the most interesting aspect of the book The third person part offers a nice insight but obviously has heavy WWE editing so it reads a little like a PR magazine release at times However that being said WWE has not been as intrusive for Bryan s side of the story for there is a surprising amount of swearing and references to acts that are anything but PG All of this helps to make it read as a realistic and Flora Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures gripping taleAs Bryan spent ten years on the independents and five consistent years in WWE there is understandably areater emphasis on the indy side There are lots of DC Super Hero Girls Midterms great road tales here and plenty that made me laugh but occasionally he can spend a little too long describing almost every move that went into some matches Unfortunately thisrates after a while and I found myself wishing he would hurry up and DC Graphic Novels for Kids Box Set 1 get to the political backstageoings on of WWE Den.
