Good, if long, bio and modern history of pro wrestling from the era of the regional promotions through the current WWF/WWE runs the world system. Hart pulls no punches when assessing the character of others in the business, especially his immediate family, whose run-ins have been well documented in the trades and online. My single biggest issue is that at some level, it still feels light. That is, it lacks depth about training in his father's infamous wrestling "dungeon" and the technical side of how a wrestler develops. Similarly, Bret Hart is a guy who had a stroke a number of years ago, but does not describe the rehab techniques and his reason for pushing himself so hard. Anyone who watches WWE programming now is well aware that he managed to come back to lead a normal life. That alone could be a book.
