No Is a Four-Letter Word: How I Failed Spelling but Succeeded in Life

Chris Jericho

Da Capo Press

 

The basics: Chris Jericho portrays himself as a bit of a Renaissance Man wearing the hats of a bestselling author and  juggling a veritable wrestling career. The book compiles his wisdom in twenty lessons that helped him establish himself in the position he is in today, peppered with what he refers to as “Jericho-isms”, his trademark witty remarks that frame his elaborations.

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.

It is not further wondrous that Jericho encountered adversity during his career and his ability to achieve what he set out to was questioned. What sets him apart is that he believed in his vision and did not allow himself to be lead astray by naysayers.

In essence, No Is a Four-Letter Word is a compilation of Jericho’s show business wisdom, which can be inspiring and is entertaining: From shedding light on how his work ethic evolved to pages he took from the books of established great showmen he encountered, e.g. Gene Simmons of KISS via David Bowie to Keith Richard.

The result is a funny, entertaining, and at times 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.
