    One thought on “I Was a Teenage Professional Wrestler”

    1. Excellent book on the Lewin brothers, written and illustrated by Ted Lewin, the artist of the family. While clearly aimed at a middle school audience, it is still a very straightforward, and intelligently written wrestling autobiography. Ted details his experiences, first as a wrestling fan, and then as a young wrestler, working his way through art school in the 1950s. His art instruction definitely paid off as the sketches and paintings of various wrestlers are outstanding.

    2. This book was really good because it shows how he went through a life of a pro wrestler. I would recommend this book to kids that have a dream and want to learn how to get through life of sports.

    3. Intended for young adult readers, this is a light but well-written and engaging insider's account of professional wrestling from an era when it was much closer to its carnival sideshow roots.
