I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It's not your typical wrestling biography. After 20+ years of putting up with the Hulkster, Linda certainly deserves her boy toy.

Well first of all I love sports and watch many but not wrestling cause to me that is not sport but fakery. I am sure they have to use special care and perhaps some techniques to not hurt each other. but I just do not like show wrestling. I do enjoy watching MMA though.

I had heard of Hulk Hogan. watched a few episodes of their "reality" TV show. Perhaps 4 or so so not many,
And I did see Lind and her new boy toy in another reality show called Couples Therapy. I still do not know why they were ther

i felt sorry for this woman because i new how she felt being bullied by a man :(.

also every wwe star who has done a book always says Hulk Hogan was a donkey.

I got this book as a friend loaned it to me, what a joke,
Its awfully written, she makes her self out to be an innocent martyr, contradicts a lot of what was going on compared to what was said on the show/said on cam then changes the story again in her book. i also dislike how she blames the hulk for everything, for e.g Nick driving to fast and the accident he caused! (though how she can blame anyone but those directly involved is beyond me after all Nick is an adult) she blames the hulk for marr

I was pleasantly surprised to find this book at the Dollar store! I figured even if it as not a good read, it was only a dollar so I purchased it. I am glad I did, it is actually really good and very interesting to find out how much of a hectic/ double life Linda had. I feel for her and look at Hulk Hogan in a completely different light now (not a fan anymore). Fast, easy, interesting read.
Every story has two sides so it only seems logical that Linda Hogan would want to speak out after her very public divorce from the Hulkster. That being said I say I believe about 30% of this book, with 20% being "possible with a slight exageration" and the other 50% is just PR spinning babble to make people like her. Don't get me wrong I'm not all pro-Hulk but really this book didn't help me one big like either one of them.

There are random "dirty" details thrown into the book like what type of
As with any situation, there is always two sides to a story. Linda, predictably, made herself out to be the perfect daughter, girlfriend, wife, mother, businesswoman -- you name it, she was perfect at it. However, I feel that her "truth" was exaggerated and that she had a lot to hide, but continually focused on Terry's wrongdoings. I'm sorry, but I just find it difficult to believe that she was this absolutely amazing, innocent woman that she portrayed herself to be. It's a little far-fetched an ...more
I read Hulk Hogan's book earlier this year, and he makes himself look all innocent, and you feel sorry for the guy. Then you read Linda Hogan's account of his cheating, and you can see that "The Hulk", isn't so innocent after all. I believe he lied many times in his book. There is probably exaggeration on both their parts, but it would be really good to read these two books back-to-back to compare. This book really held my interest and I read it in two days. I wish the best for her, and I believ ...more

She has her story hulk has is. I feel sorry that she had to put up with his nonsense. Linda should have called hulk out many times when she had the feeling about Christina and I would have never let her stay at my house. I hope she finds the peace and man that she deserves to be happy with. Money can't buy happiness is the true story here.
Did anyone really believe anything that came out of this womans mouth?? Really did she think that she could tame the Hulk?? Did she really think he wouldnt cheat?? And now she's with a 20 year old boy, yet she was upset that Hulk was doing the same thing, even though they were married... Read it for kicks, and that's all

This is one of those "I can't sleep" ebooks. She repeats herself a lot. Is it because she's trying to convince the reader of what she's saying? And the lists. Dear god, the lists. This makes me think there aren't really editors anymore.
I thought I was buying a book by an American Indian author. The too shallow ex-wife of Hulk Hogan whines about his cheating. What did she expect?
I'm going to try this book because I already read Hulk Hogan's version of the truth. Well, I didn't care for it so stopped reading.

Not a real intelligent read. Nice to hear her side of the story. Borrow it. Don't buy it.
sad pictures...started to cry right away.....beautiful babies, wild life...unimaginabel.
Interesting to learn her side of the story.
