One of the greatest ever,
This review is from: Hitman (Hardcover)
This is truly a great read. This is a man who truly turned the wrestling industry at one point and has finally told his story so far. I am a huge wrestling fan but will be the 1st to admit that at times wrestler's autobiographies can be let downs at times for one reason or another but this is not 1 of them for many reasons.
First off, due to Bret recording his times on the road during his life, he gives a more accurate account and feeling of how he felt at the time.
Secondly, he at the very least appears honest as he says good and bad about everyone including himself and will openly admit he is far from being innocent in his life.
Thirdly, he shows various sides of himself, good and funny and bad and ugly. Does he whine in this book? Yes. Does he try to have a laugh at times? Yes. What I'm saying is he's not afraid to show any aspect of himself here.
Lastly, it is very well written, to the point where I'd put this only second to Mick Foley's books (to this day I'd say he is number 1 and will stay there) with only a select few wrestlers coming close (Chris Jericho's book is a good example and another good read).
If you are a true wrestling fan and want to have a perspective to the goods and bads of the industry along with a story of one of the greatest of all time then this is worth it. I have met this man and he is like the rest of us, one of a kind and has a story worth telling and in this case does it very well. Enjoy reading those who do buy this highly recommended piece of literature!
