Having read other wrestler's biographies like Bret Hart and Mick Foley and I'm sorry to say that Steve Austin's book is only average. My main gripe is that throughout a good portion of the book it feels like he's keeping you at arms length and not letting you get to know the real 'Stone Cold'. I did enjoy it but I wasn't gripped like I was with Mick Foleys book where you felt he was honest and open all the way through.

You can understand why he has been such a success as he has a determination and work ethic that can only be admired. Also His compassion and loyalty to his close friends and family is an example to be followed and the injuries that he's overcome show his strong mentality and the willingness to fight back against insurmountable odds.

I would recommend this book to only hardcore wrestling fans.

Informative, funny and a very engaging read.

Fans of the WWE or Austin's more recent TV offerings will find this fascinating.

It's a few years old now, so be aware that it's not fully up to date as a biography.

I thought this was an awesome read. Probably more a three and a half star than a four, but more deserving of a four than a three. I felt the first quarter seemed to drag a bit, probably more impatient to read about his career to care much for his upbringing, but in retrospect he was very open, and I feel you get to know him a lot more as Steve Williams because of it, there are also quite a few laughs to get out of it. Other than Debra, due to the constraints placed by court, he talks very openly and candidly about his failed relationships, as well as his experience of almost starving while starting out in Memphis, which also expose him far more as the man behind Stone Cold. I would've liked a little more on some of the guys backstage, it seems like there are quite a few names he avoids. His recounting also tends to be a little scattered in places, with him repeating himself a little in places, which can drag a little. If you're looking for a big reveal of all the politics and skeletons of the attitude era, you won't find it here. If you're curious as to who the man behind the TV personality is, and are interested to find out a lot of things you probably didn't know about his wrestling career before WWE, then this is your book!
