This was the first recent(ish) YA novel that got me excited to write about teens, because it made me think I was reading about, well . . . me.
is the undisputed Light Heavyweight Champion of All-Things-Wrestling-In-The-Library. This is his Book / Fight Club List: Ten best for teen boys about things in the ring.
There are many UFC biographies out, so it's who you like. I'm an old guy; I like the old guy.
A novel about a teen breaking into wrestling while wrestling with some problems of his own. The author is a Ric Flair fan (whooo!).
There's a lot of wrestling biographies out there, but Y2J's is probably best of the newer ones probably because he takes himself the least serious of all the squared circle scribes.
Filled with photos of these masked Mexican wrestlers, this is a must to understand the history and scope of pro wrestling.
Nothing but photos of UFC fighters through all stages of their careers. From the founders like Ken Shamrock to the modern kings of eight-sided cage, a wonderful way to browse the history of UFC.
The book follows the author's journey to become a MMA fighter. He thought training for the Army was hard work. Welcome to the cage.
The 4th novel of a series that started in the 1960s still punches hard with hard punches and harder choices.
A quick little read about a young man trying to earn money, and respect, by winning a boxing tournament.
The gritty covers lets you know the story inside is a tough one about a young man searching for himself, one fight at a time.
You get photos, lists, more photos, and more lists. As JR would say, "Business is about to pick up."
The gold standard of comic strips. Fun for everyone; except Charlie Brown, who seems a little down on his luck.
Lessons learned include: just because you've got a best friend doesn't mean you have to pour pea soup in your shoes. I try to re-read this before I start making new book.
When Hobbes is wise, Calvin is a stinker. When Hobbes is hungry, Calvin is in trouble.
A dog party in a tree? Wait for me, I’ve got to get my hat!
The best comic strip you've never heard of. Alice and her family walk in the footsteps of Peanuts and Calvin and Hobbes, only sideways.
My favorite Everest book; my favorite adventure book.
is, most famously, the author of A Series of Unfortunate Events. He also plays a mean accordian.
This book contains fierce battles, a magic wand, illegal gambling, a sea serpent, many ghosts and a werewolf, although the werewolf in the book doesn't really appear in the book. This has been my favorite book since I was a tiny brat, and now that I am larger I try to make everyone read it.
This is another lifelong favorite of mine, about a poltergeist, which is either an invisible ghost throwing things around or somebody pretending to be an invisible ghost throwing things around.
Everybody knows Roald Dahl, but you might not know this book, which is not only a great suspense story but teaches you several methods of hunting pheasant illegally, which your parents have probably not taught you. Another thing you might not know about Roald Dahl is that if you go online you can take a virtual tour of the disgusting hut in which he wrote his books.
This starts out as a pleasant summer story about spending time with one’s cousins and then suddenly gets pretty scary.
This book is even scarier. It might be too scary for you. It is about some nasty, nasty children. I don't really like to think about this book, which is probably why I've read it three times.
OK, this book isn't nearly as scary. It's just about a young girl who gets murdered while bobbing for apples. Agatha Christie is fun to read because there's always a mystery, and often there's a list of characters in the front in case you start getting confused.
