Publisher's Summary

Three-time New York Times best-selling author and six-time WWE champion Chris Jericho shares 20 of his most valuable lessons for achieving your goals and living the life you want, jam-packed with fantastic stories and the classic off-the-wall, laugh-out-loud Jericho references he's famous for.

Chris Jericho has known what he wanted out of life since he was a teenager: to be a pro wrestler and to be in a rock 'n' roll band. Most of his high school friends felt that he lacked the tools necessary to get into either, but Chris believed in himself. With the wise words of Master Yoda echoing through his head ("Do or do not. There is no try."), he made it happen. As a result, Chris has spent a lifetime doing instead of merely trying, managing to achieve his dreams while learning dozens of invaluable lessons along the way.

No Is a Four-Letter Word distills more than two decades of showbiz wisdom and advice into 20 easy-to-listen-to chapters. From developing a strong work ethic, thanks to WWE chairman Vince McMahon, remembering to always look like a star from Gene Simmons of KISS, learning to let it go when the America's Funniest Home Videos hosting gig goes to his rival, adopting a sense of perpetual reinvention from the late David Bowie, making sure to sell himself like his NHL-legend father Ted Irvine taught him, or going the extra mile to meet Keith Richards (with an assist from Jimmy Fallon), Chris has learned countless lessons during his decades-long career. Now, in the hopes that those same principles might help and inspire his legions of fans, Chris has decided to share them while recounting the fantastic and hilarious stories that led to the birth of these rules. The result is a fun, entertaining, practical, and inspiring audiobook from the man with many scarves but only one drive: to be the best. After listening to No Is a Four-Letter Word, you'll discover that you might have what it takes to succeed as well.... You just need to get out there and do it. That's what Jericho would do.

Chris Jericho has better reads/listens

Five and Star are also four letter words.

Once again Mr Irvine delivers an entertaining look into his equally entertaining life.

His story is made better only by the fact that HE is telling it. If you're a wrestling fan, or if you're a music fan or if you just like a good old fashioned story youll be happy here.

I hope Chris' life doesn't slow down and continues to be filled with events worth reading about in his next book.

Not Y2K'd

I am a big Chris Jericho wrestling fan. I know that Fozzy is an important part of his story.

I found that some of the tales seemed stretched out and the moral add-on's, for me, rang hollow. I'm not sure what role Fozzy plays in the story.

Finally, and this was a show-stopper, while the pitch and tone of story-telling should naturally ebb and flow, some passages audio drifted off and no amount of replay or volume adjustment could uncover lost words. There were points in the spoken narrative that were mumbled, mis-spoken, and did not match the flow of the tale. An editor missed something in this regard.

I wanted the Y2K rush and it didn't happen.

(Apologies if this sounds harsh).

GOAT is also a Four Letter Word

Even though this book picks up right after the famous chronicle called, The Best In The World At What I Have No Idea, this book still covers many of the earlier days of Jericho. Another must read from the GOAT.

Reinventing is his specialty.

I don’t know how he does it but every book he has written this one you cannot put down or stop listening too. I truly hope he comes out with more books in the future. Jericho has some of the coolest stories.
