Paperback - by Mick Foley
Professional wrestler Foley is also the author of the number-one New York Times best-seller Have a Nice Day! (2000). This is his account of the 34 days leading up to his emergence from retirement and debut with a new wrestling organization. Its a chronicle of training, injuries, and rehab. But its also a collection of anecdotes about the wrestling worldincluding a few about controversial impresario Vince McMahonmusings about the use of steroids in the sport, and accounts of charity work in Sierra Leone and Foleys relationship with Paul Wolfie Wolfowitz. Yes, that Paul Wolfowitz. Though the audience for Foleys writing is primarily the huge wrestling fan base, readers who dont care a whit about the spectacle will be entertained by a surprisingly sophisticated man with a variety of opinions about the world around him. The book satisfies on a number of levels (particularly Foleys self-deprecating humor) and will likely draw significant interest. --Wes Lukowsky --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
