I idolized Bret Hart when I was a child and professional wrestling was wholesome. What you thought you knew about him may change upon reading his bittersweet autobiography. Contains many laugh out loud anecdotes and although he does tend to brag, it's tolerable. Hart describes how he developed and crafted his wrestling persona and came up with some of his signature moves. He is honest about everything; writing at length about his world traveling, coping with family legacy, the deaths of many of his close friends, melt-downs, groupies, drugs, accidents, sacrifices, personal relationships, betrayals. Becoming your personal inside man he offers you a glimpse into what it was like to work under his father before eventually joining Vince McMahon and a youthful WWF bearing witness to experiments that became huge -like Wrestlemania. To get exclusive information from a fellow who held every title and worked with the best is pretty rare and a great ride.
