About the book:
After winning Philadelphia’s SportsRadio 94WIP’s Wing Bowl in January 1999, competitive eater Bill Simmons became “El Wingador” and an overnight celebrity—helping inspire food-obsessed gluttons across the nation.However, despite winning four more Wing Bowl championships, and participating in numerous television commercials and public appearances across the country, there was much more going on behind the scenes in the life of this six-foot-five, larger-than-life character than what appeared on his plate.
Personal setbacks soon forced Simmons down a devastating and destructive road, leading to his subsequent arrest and jail sentence. A series of near-death experiences while in prison inspired Simmons to take control of his life, and his newfound path has helped him regain the love and respect of legions of fans.
‘Snow On The Barbwire’ is more than just the story of a man eating chicken wings. It is the candid, compelling tale of a man whose random participation in one of the world’s biggest eating competitions led to fame, fortune, and some rather unintended consequences. It inspires all of us to rise up against adversity and never give up on life—no matter how dire the consequences may seem.
