My Book Review of
Tito Santana: Tales From The Ring

    As I explained, kinda vague in the youtube video, the layout/structure of the book is unlike most books. Majority of any books are in chapters. Question was if it was Tito's idea of how the sections were set up or Tom Caiazzo. No matter, if you want to know the man, whom used to be called Latin Lightning in the WWF Collseum videos, and or an honest/modest view of a company building it's way over the shoulders of the territorial companies. He was there when Hulk Hogan and WrestleMania started. Watching the ups and downs, the company, wrestlers, friends and family took. This is a book where it's easy to find where he was and when. Like many other wrestlers books, he reveals a few shocking revelations. Such as the racism. It's a honest/modest view of how hard life was on the road, and the toll it took on him and his family. When he finally realized the WWF and Vince were actually going no where with him it was time to go. How would he tell his family especially without discussing it with them first. How can hide it, fulfill your job obligations and finish with a smile on your face. I had to read the excerpt on page 152 when he tells his wife Leah, it was time and her reply.
    Tito Santana Tales From Ring is definitely inspirational. The book lives up to it's name, with sections marked where and what he was doing and who he worked with. I might have sounded vague about the book in my video, but this book is no where near vague. Not just talking as his #1 fan, I'm talking as some who studies history especially wrestling. Many websites cover wrestling history, this is a wrestler's view of wrestling history during it's building years, media blitz and some tragic times.
    I told Tito during his book signing here in Wilkes Barre that wrestling was my religion. Ever since I was 16, it kept me focused away from drugs, alcohol and trouble. Tito Santana is a man you can look up to.
