    A blurb on the back of the book says, "Scott's best book yet! One of the finest things he's ever written." I guess that's literally true but put into a context where it's compared to any other book that's ever been published, and Dungeon of Death doesn't fare well at all.The problems begin right away with the title. Scott Keith devotes less than half of Dungeon of Death - Chris Benoit and the Hart Family Curse to Benoit or the Hart family. There's a book to be written that can explore how the Ha [...]

    This book has been sitting on my shelf for years. The main reason I bought it was the title and the cover. Who doesn't want the inside scoop on what happened that fateful night? Even though the only person that knows the real deal is GOD - I'm a sucker for theories.I wish I would have read this book years ago because I would have taken it back to Walmart and got a refund. Boooo! The title of the book should have been named - Wrestling: Stars, Steroids, and Death.My husband knows everything relat [...]

    I once heard a reporter friend say of bloggers, "Bloggers are bloggers for a reason." Scott Keith supports that theory with "Dungeon of Death".The book essentially reads like a series of blogs, some better than others. The short bios on dead or otherwise incapacitated wrestlers are for the most part fine -- though sprinkled with enough opinion to make a MSNBC or Fox News anchor blush -- but the overall narrative is severely flawed.The opening two chapters (the only section of the book that actua [...]

    I was a huge fan of Chris Benoit when I watched wrestling so I was intrigued when I saw this book and hoped to learn more about what could lead someone to perpetrate such a horrible act. I'm still hoping because this book didn't deliver much more than could be learned from Benoit's page. The strength of the book is the later two thirds where he talks about what led to the deaths of other wrestlers, generally a combination of painkillers and steroids. It's not that there is any great insight to [...]

    I enjoyed--if you can say 'enjoyed' regarding a book that covers a painful subject--this because of my familiarity with the subject matter and the very accessible way Keith writes. It is better than a blog but not quite up to par with a basic journalistic style. I think Scott Keith would be the first to agree with that as he comes across as very aware that he's not a journalist and not writing an investigation.Like a lot of the other reviewers have done also, I take issue with the misleading way [...]

    The thesis of this book was that a harsh fate has befallen many of the professional wrestlers who trained or worked in Stu Hart's "Stampede" promotion in Calgary. The author makes a good point and it's hard to argue that the death rate for those guys was really high. On the other hand he spends the last third of the book going totally off the rails with a survey of wrestlers dying early He just left the subject completely.

    It lists wrestlers who have died indirectly of drugs and the serves up a conclusion. The substancial part easily could be released in an essay and at the end, all the given information feels like padding.
