A definitive and exhaustive biography

Is there a way to find truth in the stuff of legend? You may think you know Andr the Giant -- but who was Andr Roussimoff? This comprehensive biography addresses the burning questions, outrageous stories, and common misconceptions about his height, his weight, his drawing power as a superstar, and his seemingly unparalleled capacity for food and alcohol. But more importantly, The Eighth Wonder of the World: The True Story of Andr the Giant transports readers beyond the smoke and mirrors of professional wrestling into the life of a real man.

Born in France, Andr worked on his family's farm until he was 18, when he moved to Paris to pursue professional wrestling. A truly extraordinary figure, Andr went on to become an international icon and world traveler, all while battling acromegaly. While his disorder is what made him a giant and a household name, it's also what caused his untimely death at 46.

With exhaustive research, exclusive interviews with family and friends, and an exploration of Andr 's amazing in-ring career and the indelible mark he left on pop culture, Laprade and H bert have crafted the most complete portrait of a modern-day mythical being.
