Jericho is a prolific wrestler, musician, author, and actor who has made a name for himself in the world of entertainment.
His book is part memoir, part self-help guide, and part motivational speech.
Jericho’s writing style is engaging and conversational, and he takes readers on a whirlwind tour of his life, from his humble beginnings in Winnipeg, Canada, to his rise to fame as one of the biggest names in wrestling. He shares his insights into the world of professional wrestling, and provides readers with practical advice on how to succeed in any field.
The book is structured around the idea that becoming a world champion requires taking 1,372 easy steps. Jericho breaks down these steps into chapters, each of which focuses on a specific aspect of his life or career.
He covers topics such as physical training, mental preparation, goal-setting, and dealing with setbacks.
One of the strengths of this book is Jericho’s honesty and vulnerability. He shares personal stories and struggles, such as his battles with substance abuse and the challenges of maintaining relationships while on the road.
His willingness to share these experiences makes him relatable and humanizes him in the eyes of readers.
Another strength of this book is its relevance to current events and issues. Jericho’s insights into the world of entertainment and the nature of fame are particularly timely in an era of social media and influencer culture.
He also addresses the issue of mental health, and provides readers with valuable advice on how to maintain a positive mindset in the face of adversity.
However, the book’s greatest weakness is its lack of depth. While it provides readers with practical advice, it does not offer much in the way of profound insights or philosophical musings.
Additionally, some readers may find the book to be overly focused on Jericho’s personal achievements, rather than on the broader implications of his message.
Overall, Undisputed: How to Become the World Champion in 1,372 Easy Steps is an entertaining and inspiring read, perfect for anyone looking to achieve their goals and realize their dreams.
