The New York Times bestselling author, wrestler, metal rocker, and over-the-top media personality shares his latest wild and hilarious adventures
World Wrestling Entertainment has named Chris Jericho as one of the top ten wrestlers—and one of the top five talkers—of all time. Certainly, the past six years have been spectacular for Jericho. After a sluggish return from his 2005 sabbatical, Jericho found new inspiration in watching No Country for Old Men and completely reinvented his character—ultimately going on to capture three world WWE titles.
The Best in the World chronicles some of the incredible and often preposterous highlights of Jericho’s recent career, including:
  • How Mickey Rourke challenged Jericho to a match, then backed out
  • Jericho’s award-winning feud with Shawn Michaels, which culminated in Jericho knocking out Michael’s wife in the ring . . . for real
  • His escape from the 2010 Icelandic volcanoes in a broken-down, European rental-car shuttle
  • His encounters with Bob Barker, Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica, Al Sharpton, and Mike Tyson; and his on-again-off-again relationship with WWE chief Vince McMahon
Jericho has a one-of-a-kind comedic voice and a knack for getting himself into screwball situations—both in and out of the ring. See for yourself why he is the best in the world.


Praise for Undisputed

“Jericho could quickly become the ‘undisputed’ wrestling author champion of the world.”
—Bleacher Report
“It is here that Jericho shines and proves once again that, next to Mick Foley, he is an insightful and funny observer of pro wrestling’s absurd universe.”
Publishers Weekly

Praise for A Lion’s Tale

“Brash, compulsively readable . . . as bracing as a body slam.” 
Kirkus Reviews

“A cleverly told, fun-filled story. . . . But it’s really more than that. It’s the story of a man living out his dream.”

“The best book centered around a wrestler I’ve read.”
—Jerry Greene, Orlando Sentinel 

“Funny, earthy, and outrageous.” 
The Tampa Tribune
