Reviews

Arguably one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all-time, Michaels offers readers an intimate look at
his transformation from a self-destructive, drug-addled superstar to a devoted father, husband, and born
again Christian. Michaels wrote about his career up to 2002 in his first book, Heartbreak and amp; Triumph
(2005), and here he focuses on how he incorporated his faith into the dazzling and strange world of pro
wrestling, including his role as a mentor to young wrestlers and his relationship with WWE CEO Vince
McMahon. Each chapter leads with a short Bible passage, and as his story moves from wrestling to his
retirement in 2010, he provides faith-based advice on subjects such as tithing, self-awareness, and selfdiscipline.
Still, the book is not overly preachy and is told with self-deprecating humor and candor.
Michaels, who currently hosts a hunting show on the Outdoor Channel called MacMillan River Adventure,
has appeal across multiple demographic categories, and this slim volume has something for all of them.
