Bret Hart has a great story to tell and allows readers and wrestling fans an inside look at his insane life. I wish him peace away from the grief and sadness caused by the dark side of his family, his profession, and his endless losses. He will always be in the top 5 favorite wrestling hero’s of all time. Thank you.55

The best wrestling book I’ve ever read by a guy that put as much care and effort into his line of work as a pro wrestler as he did in his book.55

As a boy I watches The Road Warriors, which morphed into watching WCW. I did not like Bret Hart at all. I watched through the nWo years and when Bret came to WCW I thought of him as smug and arrogant. THEN....... I read this book. After reading this book I have the utmost respect for Bret Hart and my heart goes out to him. This is a fantastic book and a must read if your a wrestling fan. Wow, I was blown away by this one.55


Best Author there is, best author there was, best author there ever will be5 star

To say this book gives you every detail of Bret "the hitman" Harts life is accurate...I relived my favorite montes and learned about the other moments in his life that were not on camera. Bret talks about himself and everyone around him as humanly possible. He inspired me when he was a wrestler and now as an author. Thank you Bret.55

3.5 stars3 star

As a female I would never read a wrestling book in my life however I did have a bit of a crush on BH when I was a teen so I figured "why not"? The beginning is very detailed and the book is quite lengthy but I can say the opinion or idea I had of BH is totally different now that I read the book. He seems so much more human than his persona that I grew up with. I applaud him for writing this book. His family issues are heartbreaking (and hits close to home for me as well) and living in Connecticut so close to Vince McMahon it made me ashamed to say we are even from the same state. Shame on VM-he exposed and played people for his own gain and still seems to do that today. A very detailed yet easy read-not disappointing at all!35
