Bruce Hart is one of eight sons of legendary wrestler and wrestler trainer Stu Hart. His new book, a biography of a life in wrestling and life in a wrestling family by ECW (entertainment, culture and writing) Press, is a whirlwind tour through the who's who of professional wrestling, spanning rival wrestlers and rival leagues. Bruce takes an honest look at wrestling from behind the scenes. He tells us stories few have heard, and maybe fewer would believe. Tales of who is really a villain off sce...more
Most wrestling fans have probably read Bret Hart's book before reading this one, so this book offers a very interesting alternate view on certain events (many of which are purely differences of opinion but a reader can decide who's version they believe for themselves).

this is the next book im goin to read as a parallel veiw from Bret Hart. Bruce Hart is Bret Harts brother and in his book he talkes about his life in wrestling and he talks about Bret Hart and his life from the side view. i look forward to reading this book. :)
Quick read. Good book. I wouldn't say it is as good as Bret's but at least Bruce was a little more grounded being in a local promotion/running the family business. the Harts are pretty fascinating as is the wild-west Stampede Wrestling promotion (RIP).
