Chris Jericho is a New York Times bestselling author with his three memoirs released, and a fourth scheduled for February 2017.
Chris’s first memoir, was published in October 2007. In A Lion’s Tale: Around the World in Spandex, Chris documents his journey from the Hart Brothers Wrestling School in Canada, to travelling the globe before finally landing in WWE. Along the way, Chris gives readers an insight into what it is like for a young, prospective Canadian trying to make an name for himself and develop his soon-to-be legendary personality and in-ring craft in Mexico, Germany, and Japan before heading back to America to make his mark in ECW and WCW before being signed by Vince McMahon. This compelling book pulls no punches and is a must for wresting fans (especially Jerichoholics) worldwide.
Chris followed up in February 2011 with Undisputed: How to Become the World Champion in 1,372 Easy Steps. In this second memoir, Chris takes fans behind the curtain of wrestling’s premier promotion, World Wrestling Entertainment. Although he was able to become a champion and legend as a member of the WWE locker room, Undisputed makes it clear that Chris, among others, still had a surplus of obstacles to overcome in order to grab WWE’s infamous brass ring.
His most recent book The Best in the World: At What I Have No Idea was published in October 2014. In this most recent memoir, Chris picks up with his return to WWE after a sabbatical and chronicles his attempts to recreate himself into one of wrestling’s biggest villains and his award- winning feud with WWE Hall of Famer and personal idol Shawn Michaels.
Chris is now working on the fourth installment with No Is a Four-Letter Word: How I Failed Spelling but Succeeded in Life. Not much is known about this installment, but with his knack for getting himself into screwball situations, both in and out of the ring, it is destined to be yet another entertaining, insightful read.
