it was ok
Read in July, 2004

It's much more lightweight than I expected it to be (I mean, can a 30-plus year career really be distilled into a mere 300-odd pages without losing something?); the ghost-writing is well below par (some of it reads like a glorified press-release; Flair can criticise Mick Foley all he wants, but at least Foley wrote his own book); and the editing leaves a lot to be desired (did Mark Madden even read what he was working on? I ask because the grammar, pacing and general structure are dreadful!). But it's probably the best we're ever gonna get from the man, and it's got enough worthy insights, stories and anecdotes to set it above the rest of its ilk (it's better than The Rock's book, that's for sure).
