5.0 out of 5 stars Hear what 'The Rock Says' Jabroni!, 16 Jun 2006
This review is from: The Rock Says (Hardcover)
In my opinion Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnston is one of the greatest wrestlers to ever step foot in a wrestling ring, and even though my wrestling obsession is now firmly a thing of the past, The Rock will always have a special place in my affections.

The Rock is a third Generation WWF Superstar, one of very few, following on the heels of his father Rocky Johnson and his grandfather the High Chief Peter Maivia. In this book, you really get a feel for the person behind the character, and by the time you've finished the last page you really feel as if you know him. Even though he was one of the WWE's most popular and talented Wrestlers perhaps of all time, he certainly hasn't let fame go to his head even now, as a fully fledged movie star, he's still the same humble being who really knows his roots and never forgets his fans. His story charts not only his metaphoric rise to the top of the Wrestling ladder, but also his childhood, growing up as the son of a wrestling superstar, and how he made it to the top himself. Do not be fooled, his father may have been a TV star but The Rock climbed to the top the hard way, living off of beans for weeks on end and sleeping on soiled mattresses.

Dwayne comes across as a very normal, loyal family man, devoted to his wife and daughter (although at the time of book little Simone wasn't born) worshipping his mother and respectuful and in awe of his father. His story is often funny, sometimes sad (He tells the story of Owen Harts demise and the death of his grandad) but it is certainly entertaining...although what do you expect from the one of the most popular men in Sports Entertainment! Can you smellllllll what the Rock is cooking!?
