Like all of his books, Jericho pokes a lot of fun at himself while shamelessly plugging his previous installments â€œUndisputedâ€ and â€œA Lionâ€™s Taleâ€ while continuing to chronicle his every endeavor, no matter how absurd. â€œBest in the Worldâ€ focuses on Jerichoâ€™s heavily built up 2008 return (featuring his top feuds with Shawn Michaels, Edge, Rey Mysterio and C.M. Punk), other television projects (â€œDancing With the Starsâ€, â€œDownfallâ€), and the budding career his band â€œFozzyâ€ continues to build. Some of the best parts are when Jericho discusses original ideas for storylines that were eventually shot down (tattooing his initials on Punk after a beatdown, The Nexus defeating John Cena).
While â€œBest in the Worldâ€ has many great moments, there are not very many struggles that Jericho recounts in his latest offering compared to his two previous books. While â€œUndisputedâ€ and â€œA Lionâ€™s Taleâ€ were both uphill battles, â€œBest in the Worldâ€ is more about Jericho having fun and going with the flow. Thereâ€™s nothing wrong with enjoying life, but the proverbial boat does not rock as much as it once did. At times â€œBest in the Worldâ€ can come off as Jericho bragging.
Regardless, Jericho continues to make people laugh, cry and groan after an obscure reference. The man is a living legend and a walking VH1 special. Jericholics and people who have enjoyed Jerichoâ€™s career or other books will also get a kick out of â€œBest in the Worldâ€ (available at your local reading emporium) even if there isnâ€™t as much gravy on the meat and potatoes.
