    1. As a wrestling fan who grew up in Memphis, TN watching Saturday morning wrestling on TV and going to the Mid South Coliseum to watch wrestling matches in which Jerry Lawler was almost always in the main event, I bought "It's Good to Be the KingSometimes when it hit the shelves. I was disappointed. Reading the book was like going down memory lane. I remembered most of the wrestling angles Jerry Lawler spoke about during his reign in the Memphis area. Watching him wrestle for many years, I didn't [...]


    2. It was a fun read but not as good as other stars' books. King jumps around quite a bit which can be off putting at times. Still has his humor and great history of wrestling in the South. I think this is a book for hardcore wrestling fans.


    3. DecentA lot of good stories for those who love wrestling history. But it jumps around a lot and lacks a cohesive story.


    4. One of the best thing about the relatively recent dissolution of WCW and the WWE breaking some of the rules of kayfabe was the glut of books that suddenly appeared.There were a couple of those books that intrigued me. Ric Flair's, of course, which I highly recommend to the wrestling fans. Lawler's probably was the next most intriguing, and I think wrestling fans will enjoy it.What makes you love or hate Lawler comes out in his writing- great one-liners, the history, the smugness. Jerry's recount [...]


    5. The WWE released autobiography of Jerry Lawler is a good read that is enjoyable but suffers the same fate as the Flair book by trying to cover a 40 year career in 375 pages. As a fan of the Memphis wrestling scene I was looking forward to a lot of great stories but it ends up lacking at times. No fault of Lawler as his career could cover several books instead of one. The book ends on a sad note with the discussion of his marriage ending to Stacy Carter that was still not resolved at the time the [...]


    6. It's hard to slam a book written by one of your all time heroes, so I won't do that. I will say--I enjoyed this book about "The King" breaking into the wrestling business, his early fame, becoming a major star in Memphis and then his success in WWE. I just wish there had been more detail about his famous angles in Memphis and even in WWE. It was a good summary of what happened, but real hardcore fans know that stuff--I wanted more details and insight. However, the stories that did get details, s [...]


    7. Being a huge Pro Wrestling fan, I have read a lot of Autobiographies and Non Fiction about wrestling. Having said that, I was a little disappointed in Jerry Lawlers book. The good parts of the novel were his upbringing and most of his wrestling career. The bad parts had to be the couple parts that I found to be chronologically incorrect and his infatuation with younger women. It's hard to feel sorry for him when he's constantly whining about being lonely and the way he deals with it is to jump r [...]


    8. I'm partial to The King, as I grew up in Louisville, KY and some of my earliest memories are of Tuesday night trips to the Louisville Gardens to see USWA Wrestling. (7:30 belltime!) As one of my long-time favorites, hearing about the life and times of the King of Memphis was thoroughly entertaining, and when Lawler reminisces about his time with Andy Kaufman it becomes downright moving. Recommended for wrestling fans - particularly those who remember the "good old days."


    9. This man's waters don't run very deep, but I guess mine don't either since I read this. This book is very good if you loved Memphis Wrestling and want to hear its history recounted by a glib, sometimes funny and always shallow ex-wrestler.


    10. Good but no great bookt enough insight into his own motivations nor what wrestling is really like behind the scenes. More like a biography and recounting of his life without the insider analysis that would have been more interesting.


    11. One of my favorite wrestlers, but not one of the best books the WWE has put out. This book is ok, but I would get it from the library and not worry about purchase unless you get it reduced on ebay or something.


    12. It had some good stories, but Lawler spends a lot of time whining about his ex. Really dragged the book down for me.


    13. I like Jerry Lawler and I liked this book, not loved it, but liked it a fair amount. For Wrestling fans it's good, otherwise, maybe take a pass.


    14. Jerry "the King" Lawler was my favorite professional wrestler. Then I read this book. My opinion of him dropped significantly. Still, I enjoyed all the stories of old-school Memphis wrestling.


    15. Horribly written, lacking direction, misogynistic, self-absorbed, all of those things describe this book and its author.


    16. Not the worst book on the wrestling lifestyle. The chapter on Sputnik ________ was enlightening. I'd want to read more on him.



    17. Stopped reading this one about a third of the way in. I don't know if it was because the prior book was so good, if this book was that bad, or if I'm just tired of reading, but I couldn't go on.
