I ordered this a couple days ago, and even though it was clearly priced (and worth) $9.99, the end sale price was $1.99.
Hooker by Lou Thesz, eBook for the Kindle app.
I am enjoying it tremendously.

I got an autographed copy of that book many years ago direct from his website(although "book" is putting it loosely because the version I have is more like a binder).  You have to take some of Thesz's biases with a grain of salt obviously, but aside from that it's a tremendous read for anyone interested in the early days of wrestling and the various political games and shoot/work scenarios of the day.  It was really good.  I might have to read it again soon.

Reading the lengthy introduction by Charlie Thesz, it seems she gave the go-ahead a handful of years ago for the book to be edited for blatant errors while not clouding the spirit of what Lou wanted to get across, as well as be re-published in a proper format (Crowbar Press).

I'll be spending 19 hours on airplanes tomorrow.  I'm bringing with me Jordan Peterson's 12 Rules For Life.

That sounds interesting.  I've always wondered why KC, of all places, was such a powerful hub for the mob.

The Russian Five by Keith Gave

It's about how he helped convince Sergei Fedorov and Vladimir Konstantinov to defect from Russia and join the Red Wings. I'm only half way through chapter 1, but my Dad and brother-in-law said it's awesome.

I just picked up the Pillman book and the dynamite kid book. I picked up the kid book years ago back before Feinstein had his issues and RF had a kiosk at the Ontario mills mall but I lost it somewhere along the way. I don’t really have plans to read either anytime soon but I was in a buying mood the other night on amazon and got them both.
