Format: Paperback
book really portrays the family life and life in wrestling number 1 family and how death can be exploited and how it can split a family to a degree that it hasn't recovered, it is a shame that only bret her brother in law stuck by her through everything and are friends to this day, if the stars went up to 10 this would be a 10 out of 10, I would recommend for any wrestling fan to get an insight of what the wrestling world is like for the wives and children

5 stars isn't enough for me this book deserves at least 6/5. I couldn't put the book down, i'm in the middle of revising for my 3rd year uni exmas and all i can think about is Martha and her account of what happened with her life with and without Owen. I finished the book in 3 days (so i could get back to studying !!!) Honestly i couldn't put the book down the book is so well written and reads fluently. The story really shows the true meaning of what love is all about these 2 were teenage sweethearts and it was all taken away for entertainment and as part of the fight to win the viewers monopoly.
The stunt was ill prepared and Owens feeling not considered although he seemed to have the notion something was going to happen. The relationship described between Martha and Owen seemed at times to have a eery feel to it - almost to good to be true but i wish i had something only as half as good as what she describes.
The book is an emotional roller-coaster and highly recommended and is not just for wrestling fans this book could be read by anyone, even if you have no knowledge of wrestling what-so-ever, you would still endure the heartache and pain that Martha experienced along with all the highs to boot.

Format: Paperback
I think this has to be one of the most harrowing books that i have read. Owens death being such a waste of talent, lost to showmanship.
This book doesnt hold back, Vince is pictured as the bad guy along with half the hart family. Infact only Bret comes out in a good light!. Martha is a very honest writer and her love for owen is very clear
I cant wait for Brets autobiography, for his take on the whole sorry story.
If your going to read any book on wrestling it has to be this one

I have never before read a book that made me cry from the moment I opened it to the moment I put it down. Don't let that put you off. It is a beautifully written tale of love and heartbreak and how a company's neglect led to the death of a true wrestling superstar. The sort of book that you can't put down. If you every wanted to know more about Owen Hart and the circumstances surrounding his death then this is a brutally honest account from the person that knew him best. A MUST READ!

This book is very well written very griping. I remember this day, and I remember reading the first article of what happened entitled "the day wrestling became too real". I admit to being a bit of a mark at this age and only knew Owen Hart as the great performer he was, but not the person. I did not have to look too far to learn about Own the person. There was an out pouring grief from everyone who had known, met or worked with Owen. He was universally loved and respected. Many wrestler broke Kayfabe (the code to protect the business, by not breaking character even in public), and spoke openly about what Owen meant to them. Of course none of this could compare to what his wife and family must have gone through.

Martha Hart openly states on the first page that writing this book was very therapeutic for her I really hope it brings her and her children peace of mind. She also states this is not a book about Owen the wrestler she wrote this focusing on Owen the person. Her husband, the father of their children, and member of the Hart family. Martha was an outsider to the wrestling business, and (as a comment from Bret to Owen got misinterpreted shows) despite the financial rewards she only saw the dark side of the business. The loneliness of being separated from your family, the horrendous travel expected, and of course drugs and womanising going on.

She wanted to show despite being born into one of the most in/famous families in wrestling Owen was different. Like Mick Foley was in wrestling to make a living rather than living for wrestling. She talks about his early life, then how they met, their time dating and making a life together.

It must be awful to be subjected to the news that your husband has been killed whilst just doing his job. But Owen was killed under extraordinary circumstances. The book traces Martha's life with Owen and her fight for justice after his death. It is written with heartfelt sincerity and considerable bitterness. Who can blame her.

It is essential reading for wrestling fans and others who might gain strength from the example and resolve Martha displays.

I do however consider, and this is my personal opinion, that Vince McMahon did the right thing in not stopping the show. I would also commend Jim Ross on the control he displayed at the time of the incident.
