Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa. Are you telling me that you don’t know who Booker T is? Are you implying that the folks who read the Bookstravaganza blog are not exclusively fans of professional wrestling? That is a stunning revelation and I never would have expected it. You should watch this video and get yourself up to speed. Can you dig it, sucka?
Alrighty. For a book that was not about wrestling, this was a passable ghostwritten biography. Booker T’s early life was awful. Orphaned at thirteen, his siblings either abandoned him or exposed him to a life of drugs and prostitution. Imprisoned for a series of Wendy’s burglaries, he remade his life, earning his GED and joining the prison weightlifting team. It’s pretty inspirational, as these things go. And for a ghostwritten book, it’s got some pretty good sentences. It’s not a particularly challenging book to read, but not all books have to be.
