 - Vince Fahey

Outside of this book, my exposure to Jack Brisco and his career as a professional wrestler, has been extremely limited.  I've seen maybe two or three matches, all from the period when he and his brother Jerry were a heel tag team feuding with Rick Steamboat and Jay Youngblood in the Mid-Atlantic territory.

That said, his book, Brisco, certainly fills in a lot of blanks for me.  Because there is virtually no wrestling footage from the '70s, much of Brisco's career is lost in time.  What has survived is from the very early 80s, when Brisco's career was already winding down.  That's a shame since all I've ever heard about Brisco is that he was a very solid worker.

As with most auto-bios, this one starts out with Brisco's early years, paying close attention to his amateur career in high school and college.  As it continues to move through his early years in pro wrestling, and onto his reign as the NWA Heavyweight championship, we get a good glimpse of who Jack Brisco was.  

There's some good information within the book as Brisco leads us through his career... some interesting back story info that I hadn't heard before.  Overall, it's a good read and well worth obtaining for any old-school fan.  My only complaint, if it can be called a complaint, is that the events leading up to Black Saturday seem a bit... brief.  More in-depth detail on what happened would have made it more interesting.  Brisco was an important figure in this deal and surely more detail could have been relayed.... Ole certainly had a lot to say about the situation in his autobiography.

In any case, fans of the KM era of wrestling should get their hands on this book.  Definitely recommended.  It can be obtained here.
