Synopsis: Chair Shots and Other Obstacles: Winning Life's Wrestling Matches is an introspective look into the wit and wisdom of legendary professional wrestler and manager Bobby "The Brain" Heenan.

"Chair shots" is a part of wrestling vernacular, but it is also a metaphor for setbacks and impediments that one experiences in life. Heenan has had his share of challenges - both personal and professional. He also has learned his share of lessons, but not in a formal education setting. The world has been his classroom and observing life around him, his curriculum.

In his new role of "self-help guru," Heenan dispenses that wisdom through tangible and downright funny examples and anecdotes of a 59-year life and a five-decade career in professional wrestling.

And what a career it has been. Heenan shares his many "chair shots," from battling pesky promoters and fanatical fans to combating cancer, which Heenan refers to as "the ultimate heel." Heenan also shares his seemingly infinite supply of humorous stories about many wrestling legends including: Dick the Bruiser, Andre the Giant, Vince McMahon, and Hulk Hogan.

Finally, "The Brain" sums up his experiences with a last bit of advice: "Don't be a 'Bobby Heenan.' I'm not even saying to be a Ray Heenan. Just be a clown. That's the best advice I can give anyone...Now, when do I get paid?"

About the Author: Since 1990, Steve Anderson has covered the sport of professional wrestling in a unique way. Whether drawing editorial cartoons or writing high-profile feature articles, Anderson has worked for nearly every major wrestling publication in a senior writer role.

Chair Shots is the fifth book that Anderson has been involved with and his second opportunity to work with Bobby Heenan. His work has been seen in the Pro Wrestling Illustrated family of magazines, World of Wrestling Magazine, Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) Magazine, Wrestling Digest, and CBS Sportsline’s Wrestleline.com.

Anderson is a graduate of Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota, and Shakopee (Minnesota) High School. He is currently a writer for Total Wrestling magazine and an editorial cartoonist for the Farmington Independent and the Rosemount Town Pages. Anderson lives in Farmington, Minnesota with his wife, Justine, and his children, Dominic and Madison.
