I'm Next: The Strange Journey Of America's Most Unlikely Superhero by Bill Goldberg
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Browsing in the library for something on running, I started looking at the books about "professional wrestling" aka "sports entertainment." I decided to read Goldberg's autobiography, written with his brother. Much of the prose sounds like direct transcriptions of his reminiscences. What appealed to me was that, the blurb above about what kind of "machine" he is notwithstanding, Bill Goldberg is a thoughtful and hard-working man, and a compassionate human being who cares about people. What in other books might come across as name-dropping, in this case becomes a grateful tribute to many who have helped him have a wonderful life in a couple of painful and soul-threatening businesses. A tip of the yarmulke to Bill Goldberg and I'm Next.
