Format: Hardcover
having been a fan of batista for sometime, i found this book a good read.
he is very honest throughout and opens up about he kids and love for his ex wife,.
he shares stories about traveling on the road, and the respect he has for other wrestlers including eddie, and the chris benoit tradegy.

one thing i found is he says a lot of things like "i carn't remember the name of the place, or who was there". but its still worth reading

Format: Hardcover
First of all i would like to say that this book is very good, but it gives you an insight into the life of a superstar rather than the buisness (if you would like to read about how the buisness works read HBK's book lol)

I felt that this book could be a tiny bit premature because Batista's career is fairly new, although he has accomplished a heck of a lot in that time. The book follows Batista's life from childbirth up until Backlash 2007. The book is broken up into mini chapters about certain things which is great if you want to pick it up and read a few pages then stop (i never put it down!)

The one thing that annoyed me about this book was that Batista would start telling a story like this "I remember one time me and Randy were in a club but i cant remember the circumstances" or "i don't recall who was there but". That was the one thing that really annoyed me but desptie this there are some great stories in their involving other wrestlers.

I think this is a very well written book that gives a great insight into a superstars life and what stresses and strains they are put through. A must buy

Format: Hardcover
despite a very short career in the industry it was felt that dave batista had enough history to warrant a book,at the start of this book the man himself states that he feels he shouldnt be writing a book as he doesnt have enough to say but the publishers hounded him to do so ,this is a very honest thing to say and the book follows in the same vein.
Batista is very open in all aspects here,he admits wrestling wasnt his great love in life,he admits that he isnt the best wrestler around and that his mic skills leave alot to be desired,he speaks of his days a bouncer,borderline crime as a youth,his affairs on his wife and gives insight on who helped him along in a very candid fashion.
I bought this book at book signing in belfast and for all of batistas talk in book of being great to fans i felt he was far from that,he wouldnt personalise the books,wouldnt pose for photos really and was in hurry but boy was i starstruck,as i shook his hand my knees were going mad,what would happen if i ever met hulk hogan,i think i would have to be stretchered out,anyway this is a great book that keeps itself interestuing throughout.

Batista is a relative newcomer to wrestling, and since I am not a fan of his, I shall try to concentrate on the book and not the wrestler.
I found him honest throughout. He mentions loads of the guys in the locker room and with only the minor exception, does he say anything derogatory about any of them. I felt that he is only too aware that he is a rookie who has been fast-tracked to the top. This makes his style of writing humble rather than OTT - all credit to him.
He goes into his personal life in considerable detail and gives a candid picture of himself. His references to his failed marriages were a little ascorbic but I am in no position to criticize that. I expect that putting pen to paper helped to get stuff out of his system. But what does come over big-time, is his love and devotion for his mother. She must be a remarkable woman.
All things considered, I found it an enjoyble read. It does not go into great depth generally but is comprised of short passages and anecdotes.
Like the previous reviewer, I felt that Dave is writing this book rather prematurely.
Well worth taking a look at!

Format: Hardcover
Batista Unleashed is a very enojyable read in which you truly get Batista's feelings on matters, which unveils a story of a man with more to him than perhaps people may think.The only drawback is his wrestling career,particularly as a headliner,has been fairly short,so maybe this autobiography is perhaps too early,but the life he's lead more than makes up for it-an engaging read

By Just 88 on 5 May 2013
Format: Hardcover
If there was ever a pro-wrestler who wrote a book, just to cash-in on their popularity it is Dave Batista. This book was written just a couple of years into his wrestling career and didn't really seem to fit any purpose other than to try and get him over with the fans and make him and the company a bit of money. Sure, that's what the business is all about but as one fan to another, I'd recommend not bothering with this book.

There are some positives in the book, we learn about his upbringing and how he made his way to the top of the WWE card from being a poor kid from Washington but there's no real detail in here. There's no real substance or real human stories to connect with him.

If you're a big fan of his, then by all means buy the book but if you're looking for any pro-wrestling book there are a ton of better ones on the market.
