*****Pulled over from the blog (bookwormcoalition.wordpress.com) written by my fellow coalitioner, Jennifer (you can find her on BookLikes too, http://bookwormcoalitionjen.booklikes.com) and myself, of course!*****
What a pleasant little surprise this book was! I don’t quite know what I was expecting when I started Bound by Duty, but it wasn’t the level of originality that I ultimately got! This was a pretty great start to what appears to be a very promising series! This was a unique, intriguing story that pulled me in right away and dragged me along constantly wanting more.
The Lost Art of Tag Team Wrestling is a very brief history of tag team wrestling.
This is the twenty-first book in my Kindle Unlimited Experiment. For the 30 day trial, I'm only reading books that are part of the program and keeping track what the total cost of the books would have been.
This was a mediocre wrestling book. First, I'll briefly go over the parts I actually enjoyed.
The Lost Art of Tag Team Wrestling gives a brief overview and history of tag team wrestling, explores the psychology behind tag team wrestling matches, and then profiles a few of the great tag teams of the 1980's. The psychology was by far the most interesting part of the book. The profiles were decent but nothing earth-shattering.
My issues with this book are two-fold.
1. The length. It's supposed to be 229 pages long but that's due to the photos and the ginormagantuan font. There's maybe 75 pages of text here.
2. The length. I realize the length is the #1 issue but it's such a big issue that I'm listing it again. How about including more tag teams? Or some quotes from wrestlers? Or anything else to justify calling this a book and not an overly long magazine article?
It wasn't completely without merit but this one would go on the completely unnecessary pile if I had such a thing. Two stars.
