The life and times of Brock Lesnar spans an NCAA championship in wrestling, a career as a WWE Superstar, a short stint trying out for the NFL, and now being the UFC heavyweight champion. That life will hit the pages, and then hit bookstore shelves, as Lesnar and longtime friend Paul Heyman are currently working on an autobiography for the South Dakota born fighter who has seen a lot in his 32 years. Heyman, formerly known as Paul E. Dangerously to many pro wrestling fans, has been a longtime friend to Lesnar, and the two are collaborating on a book that will give fans an insider's view to his life. No word from Lesnar on when the book will be released, but it's expected to span quite a bit of time and cover many subjects, as he's lived an interesting life that should end up being a monumental story.

I used to enjoy reading books by wrestlers when I was a WWF/E fan years ago, still a Heyman fan too. This one I'll likely get.

I'm definitely getting this. I have Liddell's book and Hughes' and they were both pretty good. Chuck's was better though the Hughes one made me think he was a dick after reading it all. Lesnars should be cool. On a side note did anyone ever get the Tank Abbott book? I remember hearing it was coming out a long time ago but then never heard anything after that. If it's out though I want it.

I've read Chuck's and Hughes' books. The Liddell book was decent (B+) and the Hughes book was so/so (C or C+). I'd still like to read BJ's, Randy's and Tito's. I wasn't aware that Tank Abbott had one. Now that I think about it, I'm not so sure I'd even be interested in reading it.

I'd rather he wrote this in five years, but I guess he wants to have some more to talk about in a 2nd book later on.

I cannot wait to see what Vince McMahon has to say about certain sections of this book. I'll be reading this book for sure.

This sounds interesting. Hopefully they do it right. Biographies are usually either great or terrible in my experience and I've read a lot of them.
