    "I like this book about Stone Cold Steve often and like that I got "The Stone Cold Truth" because he was always so real.I also liked that he not only mentioned wrestling but his not so perfect personal side. He admits to drinking and problems that lead to his divorce. That is what makes him so real."

    "Ric Flair was The Man in wrestling. However, he was also a bit of a twisted, lusty, hard-drinking kind of a guy, and I'm not sure I'd ever trust what he said. If you are looking for an interesting story about wrestling, then this is a good choice. If you are looking for a detailed work about the wrestling business, then you probably should look elsewhere."

    "I am a huge mark for Shawn Michaels so I bought this book with rose-tinted glasses. I need not have worried that Shawn would come across as unlikeable or too boastful, he came across as a guy who lived his dream to be a great wrestler and made it to the very top before injuries curtailed his career for the better part of four years. He was quite modest in places. "

    "This isn't really what I'd describe as a book that's *about* wrestling, but wrestling does feature highly in how the book talks about things. It's more of a guidebook to exercise and bodysculpting, but if you're a fan of Triple H, there's enough biographical and wrestling information to keep you interested with that alone. "

    "This book tells the real story of a real person who entered the wrestling profession, so you are getting first hand experiences and stories. The author tells the bright and dark side of his history--how he rose to fame, but also the pain and addictions that come with being a professional wrestler. You aren't going to get the fairy tale, TV version, which is what makes this book a good choice for anyone wanting to read about wrestling."

    "This book is very interesting but it has two main problems. I noticed several of the facts were wrong, I even checked on the internet. Also it is dated, it looks like it was last updated around 2010. There are better wrestling books out there."
