#BookReview: Life Is Short And So Am I by Dylan “Hornswoggle” Postl

Luck O’ The Irish. It is … interesting… to read a memoir from someone just months older than my middle brother, as one typically expects a wrestling memoir to be written from someone a bit older (or maybe it just seems I’m getting old – Dwayne Johnson’s and Chris Jericho’s first books had to have come out around a similar age, 20 yrs ago). But Dylan ‘Hornswoggle’ Postl has lived more and done more than most of us outside of the wrestling world will ever do, and this is his tale. From growing up in small town Wisconsin with an addict for a mother to being part of some of WWE’s most legendary moments with two different McMahons, this is the story of the past and future of WWE’s wee Irishman. Strong memoir, both from a wrestling perspective and not, this is one everyone will enjoy but WWE fans of the last decade or so in particular will have many fond memories of. Truly excellent work from someone The Rock once thought was a Make a Wish Kid. (Read the book, you’ll get it. 😉 ) Very much recommended.
