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 outJericho’s award-winning feud with Shawn Michaels, which culminated in Jericho knocking out Michael’s wife in the ring . . . for realHis escape from the 2010 Icelandic volcanoes in a broken-down, European rental-car shuttleHis encounters with Bob Barker, Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica, Al Sharpton, and Mike Tyson; and his on-again-off-again relationship with WWE chief Vince McMahonJericho 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.

  • Jericho's Trilogy

    From Willthethrill71
    I'm not a current wrestling fan and have only heard a few Fozzy songs (although Sandpaper will be downloaded from Itunes when i post this) I was a strength athlete in the early 90's and while competing in Winnipeg I was told a few times that i should try wrestling as a couple WPG guys had a buddy (who's Dad had played in the NHL-Ted Irvine) who was off chasing his dream, fortune and girls. They said he was living in squalor those lean years and thought about that often over the years and cool to find out it was Jericho/Irvin! Love his Pop Culture references that i get at same age as Jericho but the youngest kids are going "panama? Does Panama make a sound? Hehe yeh it does on fav Van Halen tune! Great book with many stories of a very driven man not scared to try something new Great Job Chris on all 3 but i laughed myself silly in "Undisputed" so thats my fav.... Hope you keep going Fan from Ontario
  • Absolutely wonderful

    From Tbbucs
    This is one of the best wrestling books I have ever read, bar none. In fact, it is one of the best books I've ever read. Chris has an uncanny writing style that just gives you the sense of the stories he is trying to tell in a way that actually makes you feel like you are there with him as he recalls his memories. The transition from a Lion's Tale to Undisputed to The Best in the World shows not only the transition of Jericho the wrestler, but as an author and story teller. He treats the reader with intelligence and draws you closer in a way that makes you feel like he is letting you in on the backstage stuff you always wondered about. I've very rarely read a book where I truly felt as though I understood the author more AND like I had been let in to the world he lives in. I laughed out loud a lot while reading this and so appreciate the work and insight of Chris Jericho. Thank you for another tremendous read.
