You have to be a fan to like this book. Otherwise, it's a bunch of fights descriptions. It gets boring after a while. So 400 pages goes a long way. Sometimes funny, more often not so funny, the author has a high level of self esteem, though he seems a nice guy and a tough one. Foley likes indulging pain... on himself. I guess I did it myself in reading this book....Continua
Wrestling Entertainment has always been one of my guilty pleasures, and Mick Foley/Cactus Jack/Mankind/Dude Love is one of my favourites ever.
In this book, that - as he proudly specifies - he has written without support from any ghost writer (he also wrote books for children and two very good novels), he gives the reader a glimpse into the world of Wrestling Entertainment, with its highs and lows.
Very interesting, quite well written and often really funny.
A great biographical novel on the pro-wrestler Mick Foley. It is funny, sad, moving, thought-provoking, and in general one hell of a great read. Even non-wrestling fans should enjoy it.
