Have I mentioned before that I like the fake fighting? I do. However, I probably wouldn’t have purchased Amy Dumas’ autobiography because she didn’t stick around the business all that long (I think a total of about 7 years, 3 after the publication of this book). But when it came available free, I figured "why not?" I’m glad I did, because it was actually fairly interesting, particularly when compared with Chris Jericho’s book which was middle of the road in quality. The strong point of the book is that it feels like a retelling of Dumas’ struggles, rather than a list of the matches, feuds, and promotions in which she participated. Not a great autobiography, but at least I felt like I got to know my Dumas as a person (even if it’s just a persona she’s projecting).

Dedication
I dedicate this book to Cody. Our ten short years together have provided me with a lifetime of joyful thoughts and invaluable life lessons. I will always love and cherish you, for my journey, I believe it would have been different had we not become friends.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0743473981, Hardcover)

The autobiography of one of the wrestling world's top women stars - the flaming redhead and dragon-tattooed diva who fought her way back to the top after a devastating stunt accident threatened to end her career. Lita put paid to the idea that the role of female wrestlers was to stand in the corner looking pretty. Her style was explosive, leaving the ropes to execute breathtaking aerial manouevres that few but the best could master. Breathtaking trademark moves like the Hurricanrana, the swinging DDT and the moonsault from the top rope won her the World Wrestling Entertainment women's championship. But one fierce piledrive into the canvas while she was performing as a stunt artist on the set of the TV show Dark Angel changed her life forever. Lita: It Just Feels Right is the story of a free spirit who literally broke her neck and battled right back. Her life has been characterised by determination and independence: before she became a star she had travelled the world in search of adventure, played bass guitar in a rock band, and studied judo and kickboxing. A heroine to millions of WWE fans worldwide, Lita's story is one of inspiration, thrills, and success against impossible odds.
