Wrestlecrap: anyone else have this book?

As a wrestling fan, and someone who loves to follow the website, (www.wrestlecrap.com , for those interested) this is a must own.
R.D. Reynolds, the author and man who runs the website, manages to write the book in a style which makes it enjoyable to both fans and non-fans alike. If you aren't a fan and are unfamiliar with the terms, he spends the first few pages explaining the business and how it works.
He opens the book with the story of the infamous "Gobbledy-Gooker" from Survivor Series 1990, and continues to dish out the laughs from that point. Probably the most important point the book makes is that no matter how dumb something seems, whether in the world of wrestling, movies, or music, someone, somewhere, thought it would make money.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who not only is interested in wrestling, but the stories behind why some business ideas go bust.
