CHRIS & NANCY — A Guide for the Perplexed

CHRIS & NANCY: The True Story of the Benoit Murder-Suicide and Pro Wrestling’s Cocktail of Death is a book that everyone is talking about – and exactly five writers have reviewed. Listen to all the gossip. Then read the reviews for yourself:

 

Randy Shaw, Beyond Chron

http://www.beyondchron.org/articles/_Book_Exposes_Pro_Wrestling_s_Cocktail_of_Death_7522.html

“Muchnick provides a great public service in exposing what he describes as the WWE’s ‘Cocktail of Death.’ Now it’s up to wrestling fans to demand action, or else continue seeing their heroes die early from avoidable deaths, often ending up destitute after enriching the McMahons.”

“Incredible retelling of the tragic story, with all its odd twists and bizarre turns. The actions of no one are spared…. Highly recommended for anyone willing to relive the horrific events to find out what was overlooked during the official investigation and see who is or who isn’t talking anymore.”

David Bixenspan, SLAM! Wrestling

“The good parts are absolutely fascinating, and the bad parts were at least expected for the most part. The fact that the flaws largely come from exploiting holes in the official story and searching for the truth make them more tolerable than they would be otherwise…. [I]ncredibly well researched and … an incredibly valuable resource about the subject.”

“an immensely interesting and readable book, not just for steroid users but anyone who thought that something was rotten in Denmark when they heard about Chris Benoit murdering his family and killing himself…. [I]f you’re interested in professional wrestling or anabolic steroids, this book should be high on your list of must reads.”

Joe Babinsack, Wrestling Observer website

“[H]ow did the WWE handle the big picture and help to ensure that this was one more footnote in the dustbin of the history of untimely deaths of athletes associated with the professional wrestling industry?… We should all at least be trying to make better sense of it all, not pretending it never happened.”
