Short and forgettable like a jobber match

More of a podcast interview, Lombardi is humble, funny, but this is chaotic and abbreviated.

My first Audio Book

I'm a massive wrestling fan and heard about this book during a podcast the Brawler did with Jim Ross. I don't have time to read and really wanted to hear his Story. It was fantastic and definitely worth getting. Now what's next :)

Heartfelt

As a guy who has been fortunate to have travelled the world I like to listen to other peoples road stories. I have great respect for wrestlers as they perform at a level and grind unparalleled and frequently listen to their podcasts. The Brooklyn Brawler has been around since my childhood and this audio book encapsulates the real life story of dedication and humbleness. The crowning point being the native accent of Mr Lombardi which adds a layer of depth.

Good insight into the WWF era

Heartfelt story from a guy who overcame hardships to achieve his dream. Brooklyn Brawler Steve Lombardi is someone who always worked hard, entertained millions all across the world, and always made everyone else look great. I grew up watching the Brawler every week on TV, and saw him on some international tours, and what a character!

In this audio book, you won't be able to stop listening until the end, as Brawler holds nothing back in terms of his family highs and lows, as well as being a young fan who respected the business so much, and that comes across when you hear him tell his story, as you'll find yourself rooting for him to succeed. You won't get backstage dirt here, but you WILL find inspiration from a very likeable guy.

Fun and engaging

Very glad that I heard Brawler/Lombardi plug this short audiobook on the Ross Report Podcast, it's well worth the reasonable price. While it clocks in at only an hour and a half, you get a succinct, engaging, heartfelt tale of a fascinating life. From growing up in Brooklyn to the incredible against the odds way that the author broke into the business, to several great stories of life in the vaudeville carnival circus of pro wrestling, this was a fun listen. Anyone who loves a good story will love this book. Whoever advised Brawler, with his heavy NY accent, to read this himself and release it as an audio book gave brilliant advice, Lombardi's reading really puts this over. It's a great breeze of a listen, so you humanoids won't strain your external occipital protuberances, but you will enjoy it. Hope theres another one down the road.

Steve has seen it all through many WWE eras

What a story. He has wrestled with the greats before they were great. Of course only Steve can provide the voice for the audio book. Looking forward to more stories from Steve.
