Wrestling with the Devil

Lex Luger takes the reader through his life-the good, the bad, and everything in between. Early on in the book I was concerned that the narrative seemed to glorify his sinful past and felt that some commentary from Lex would have been beneficial. This concern fades as the book progresses and Lex becomes more explicit in his faith and less nostalgic about his past. 

One thing I really appreciated about this book is how Lex is respectful of the people he mentions. He never speaks negatively about a person and, in situations that warrant a critical reference, does not mention those by name. It is so easy to turn an autobiography into a means of disparaging those with whom you have had issues, and Lex chooses not to do so. 

This is a good, fast, entertaining read. I appreciate Lex's candor and enjoyed the book.

I received a review copy of this book from the publisher through Netgalley.com
