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).
