When The Rock (or Joe Layden, his writer) talks about the early days of The Rocks life this book is good. He talks about being a great athelete growing up in a sports related background and his early love for american football. He talks about his school and college days, which include a few stories about his uncontrollable temper that you would not think possible of the man today. However, as soon as he starts to talk about his wrestling career... he glances over matches, building them up saying how great he is and it doesn't matter if its Stone Cold or Brooklyn Brawler hes facing hes so far better than all of them, before saying things like and I won cleanly or lost via cheating.... I know he was trying to be in character, but lets face it, if we buy a supposed biography, we want to know about things from his true perspective, not his characters extreme. If you want to know a lot more about wrestling, buy Have A Nice Day, or Foley is Good by Mick Foley. They are truly excellent reads.
