Read No Is a Four-Letter Word: How I Failed Spelling But Succeeded in Life Online Free - Three-time New York Times bestselling 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, with a foreword by Paul Stanley.
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 twenty easy-to-carry 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 book from the man with many scarves but only one drive: to be the best. After reading 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.

After finishing Jericho’s previous book, “The Best in the World (At What I Have No Idea)”, I was pretty confident that if he chose to write a fourth book, I wouldn’t be picking it up. I found it boring, lacking in substance and purely a money-grab. Yet, here we are. You can blame Kindle for tempo...

I originally picked this up because it was recommended to me. While I did enjoy most of the advice he had to offer regarding how to be successful with your career and aspirations, I also found a section of this book to be terribly problematic and disrespectful.
There is a part where Jericho discu...

"I'm sure if I said I wanted to be an astronaut and a pharmacist or the premier of Manitoba and a rodeo clown, my friends probably wouldn't have batted an eye. But to say I had dreams of playing rock'n'roll and being a WWE champion made me look like Donald Trump in a windstorm... really stupid."...

No Is A Four Letter Word is Chris Jericho's 4th book and sees him take the switch from a classic autobiography to more of a self help manual based on his past experiences.
This book won't wow Chris's wrestling fans with stories of his wrestling like his previous 3 and isn't meant too. It's a good...

I pre-ordered NO IS A FOUR-LETTER WORD sight unseen—literally; it didn't have a cover—months ago. It was Chris Jericho's fourth book. That's all I needed to know. While NO is autobiographical, it's Jericho's fourth book only insofar as it's the fourth book he's written. It doesn't follow the more...

Upon hearing about Chris Jericho's announcement that he was adding a fourth memoir to his bibliography, I can't say I was at all excited. His first book was excellent, then the second and third efforts, although good, didn't quite reach the same level. Given we were pretty much up to date with th...

Jericho is now tied with Mick Foley for wrestler with most autobiographies with four. Chris dares to hint at a 5th book too in here. His 4th bio jumps all over the place but primarily focuses on 2013 through 2016. This book has a self-help theme to it with each chapter having one of Jericho's lif...

I first became aware of Chris Jericho through his wrestling career with the WWE, then his music career with his band, Fozzy, and then his podcast, Talk is Jericho. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that he seems like a pretty nice guy. (Spoiler alert: the heel he plays on the WWE is just a char...

With this one in the form of a self help book there’s a bit of a “reinvention” to the format of his previous books. For me this one isn’t quite as well played out as the previous books.
There’s a lot of stories which are here purely to show how many people he knows, how cool he is or how amazing...

The premise of Jericho's fourth book may have changed slightly from autobio to self-help, though it's still chocked full of modern tales that continue his life story, while pointedly presenting a lesson with each. I picked it up more for the stories than the help, but I could easily recommend it...
