11/1 would definitely read again. this book taught me the inner world of wrestling and showed pictures of The Glorious Rock taking on jabronis and slamming down massive amounts of hurt. loved the unauthorized nature of the book and the fact that the rock probably doesn't know that it even exists
This book is an more of an inside story of The Rock, mostly when he was in his colege years. In his college years he was a football player as a lionback and he was a big guy on campus. This made his nickname Rocky bacause he was a tough guys in those years. It also mentions that he's the 3rd generation of wrestling, he is the son of Rocky Johnson and grandson to the late Great High Cheif Peter Maivia.
Me being the Rock's biggest fan, i thought the book was mean. Rock Solid gave us the oppurtunity to get to know the Rock a little better. From this book I learnt alot of new things about the Rock like that he used to live here in Auckland and that his grandfather and father were both wrestlers aswell. Overall I thought Rock Solid was the best biography I've ever read.
