Despite what people might think this book might be, or even think about Jesse Ventura personally, this is a great book. Jesse the Body Ventura makes good use of these pages half biography half political book half wrestling book (yes I know that’s three halfs), and all great. Political wise, it’s a pretty interesting read, Jesse has a lot of ideas, whether you think they’re good or bad ones he outlines them here, and in a way you can hang with and don’t just lose interest because he’s talking politics. Besides that Jesse talks about everything from his personal life to getting into and out of the wrestling business and making movies. Where else but in this book are you going to hear about Navy Seal training, hanging out with Arnold Schwarzenegger, being in a motor cycle gang, wanting to be “Superstar” Billy Graham, getting a hooker to pay for sex with you, becoming governor and having Hulk Hogan rat you out in your plans to unionize the wrestling business? No where. This book really has it all. Weather you like or hate Jesse Ventura this book is bound to have something for you. I highly recommend reading this one, it’s a good time all around. The former Governor, ex-wrestler, actor filled 304 pages, this is the only one of his books that I’ve read but I’m more than ready and willing to check out some of the many others he’s written.
