Cheating Death, Stealing Life
by Michael Krugman & Eddie Guerrero
Description: If there is one Wrestling book that every fan must own this is
I recently decided I wanted some of the best Wrestling books on the market,
So I purchased Eddie Guerrero (Cheating Death Stealing Life from
Amazon.co.uk), Mick Foley (Have a Nice Day also from Amazon.co.uk) and Ric
Flair (To be the man from ROHWrestling.com). I realised that by purchasing
and reading this book it would be a bitter sweet experience (As Eddie's
death Hit me like a brick to the head, after a tremendous day of Wrestling
on the Saturday before), but after following Eddie's career for the last 9
years (From WCW - WWE) I thought I owe it to myself to buy this book.
The one thing that is missing in a lot of Wrestling books, is honesty. Well
do not worry as in this book that is not a factor at all. This is a truly
honest (brutally at times) account of Eddie Guerrero's life. There are items
that are addressed that Wrestling fans might be aware of the Fight with
Michael Hegstrand (aka Road Warrior Hawk) in Japan, you get to hear Eddie's
extremely honest account of the incident. Up and including the backstage
incident in WWE with Charlie Hass, Eddie gives another honest account of
There are things which we as Wrestling fans are were not aware of, why after
a successful tour of Japan Eddie could not get booked in Mexico, the
incredibly brutal recall of WCW backstage politics, the almost fatal car
crash in December 1998, Eddie's trials and tribulations with drug and
alcohol addiction to redemption in Winning WWE Title at WWE No Way Out '04.
Those are just a few things covered in this book, but anything and
everything is covered in great detail with an honesty that can't be matched
in any other book.
The most honest (sometimes brutal) account of a person's life I have ever
read, any question about Eddie you ever wanted answered is so in this book.
This book makes you believe that you knew the 'Real' Eddie Guerrero, even
though I will never unfortunately get to meet the man. This book also makes
you understand why the following days after Eddie's death why there were
over 150,000 e-mails and messages of Condolences sent to his family. If you
are an Eddie fan or a Wrestling fan you owe it to yourself to purchase this
book, personally this is the best £12 I have ever spent.
Rating: Eddie Guerrero 'Cheating Death Stealing Life' gets a 10/10 it is that Good! Buy this book now, you will not regret it!! THANK YOU EDDIE!
