Brody: The Triumph and Tragedy of Wrestling's Rebel - Larry Matysik, Barbara Goodish After the success of his book about Wrestling at the Chase, Larry Matysik narrows his focus to telling the story of Bruiser (aka King Kong) Brody, from his early days to his unsuccessful stints in pro football and as a sports writer, to his metamorphosis into chain-swinging wildman, to his murder in Puerto Rico in 1988.

Brody is in my top three or four pro wrestling books, right up there with Pure Dynamite and the Terry Funk book. Lots of good road stories.
