School Library Journal Review for Wrestling's Tough Guys
Beginning with curiosity-piquing openers, these flashy biographies will grab and hold readers’ attention. Writing with classic, dramatic sports jargon, Sandler covers the subjects’ childhoods to present careers and includes information about their schooling and other accomplishments. The captioned color photos are clear, action-filled, and eye-catching. The layout is well balanced, with additional interesting factoids or definitions included in text boxes. Words in bold type are defined in the glossaries. However, there is no mention of the staging involved in professional wrestling, leading readers to believe that the sport is all about physical skill. The violence inherent in the sport is depicted and described. Stats and “Fun Facts” are listed.
