No Is a Four-Letter Word: How I Failed Spelling but Succeeded in Life
Da Capo Press
The basics: Three-time New York Times bestselling author and six-time WWE champion Chris Jericho shares 20 of his most valuable lessons for achieving your goals and living the life he wants, packed with stories from his career and the classic off-the-wall Jericho-isms and references he's known for for, with a foreword by Paul Stanley.
Chris Jericho gets shit done: Pro wrestler, lead singer or a touring and established rock 'n' roll band, heading his own widely successful podcast with his signature style and a range of interesting guests. Most of his high school friends felt that he lacked the tools necessary to get into either, but Chris believed in himself. He made it happen by doing instead of merely trying, managing to achieve his dreams while learning dozens of invaluable lessons along the way.
No Is a Four-Letter Word distills more than two decades of Jericho’s showbiz wisdom and advice into twenty easy-to-carry chapters. From developing a strong work ethic thanks to WWE chairman Vince McMahon, remembering to always look like a star from Gene Simmons of KISS, learning to let it go when the America's Funniest Home Videos hosting gig goes to his rival, adopting a sense of perpetual reinvention from the late David Bowie, making sure to sell himself like his NHL-legend father Ted Irvine taught him, or going the extra mile to meet Keith Richards (with an assist from Jimmy Fallon).
In the hopes that those same principles might help and inspire his readers, Chris has decided to share them while recounting the stories that led to the birth of these rules. The result is a fun, entertaining, practical, and inspiring book – Jericho’s fourth, which compared to the previous three sees him take the switch from a classic autobiography to more of a self help manual based on his past experiences.
