[Book Review] Bret Hart’s highly praised autobiography “My Real Life in the Cartoon World of Wrestling” was released in the United States and can be purchased at virtually every commercial book store in your area. I was fortunate enough to pick up the book in Canada when it was released here last year and I cannot recommend it enough. There is no doubt that the “Hitman” has led an extremely fascinating life worthy of being published and appreciated by the billions of his fans all over the world. From his harsh upbringing as one of twelve kids fathered by the grizzled Stu Hart to becoming a multi-time World champion to his glorious induction into the WWE Hall of Fame – it’s all covered in this epic 570 page book! If you haven’t done so already, go out and get this book because I am positive that you will not regrete it. You can also get the book online at Amazon.com, Amazon.ca, Chapters.ca, or any of the other major online book dealers. Thank you, Bret. – Brad Dykens (OnlineWorldofWrestling.com)
