The Stone Cold Truth

by Steve Austin with Dennis Brent

Description: A good look into the life of Steve Austin from childhood to his wresting career. Starting at world class championship wrestling and ending at wwe. It has lots of pictures and there are excerpts where Austin's parents and Jim Ross make their own comments. Some of the chapters include Steve's relationship with Bret Hart, Owen Hart, Mick Foley, Vince McMahon and why he walked out of wwe. Really get to know the Texas Rattlesnake in this great book.

Rating: I would give this book 8 out of 10 because I think it is well written and entertaining. The detail is good but could have been better. A good read.

Honestly, I had low expectations, but it really delivered. Stone Cold had a hell of a story to tell, and he told it as well as anyone. With the assistance of Jim JR Ross, the most popular superstar of all time puts out a must read. 9/10.

To start off, like any wrestling book, you have to like the wrestler. In this book, Steve Austin tells his life from his childhood to his last moment in the ring while using humour to make the book even better. GREAT BOOK! It talks about his injuries, how he came up with some of his greatest promos, his favorite matchs and wrestlers. One thing I didn't enjoy as much was his childhood. It talked too much of it. It had a lot of childhood info, regarding family and friends. Although the book in general is awesome, I would of liked it being longer. This book, 312 pages, can be easily read in 2 days.

After reading this book, ANY fan would love Steve Austin a bit more:P! Shows what kind of a good man Austin and some wrestlers are... but I won't ruin you the book. For 39.00, it's a GREAT buy and a NEED for any Stone Cold fan.

I'm an Austin fan, so I knew I was going to like this book. It covers a great deal over Austin's childhood and it mostly seems to be in chronological order... for the most part. The only thing I have anything against it is that the way it's all written just seems like Austin will talk about one thing, then shoot to something completely different. This is fine, because I can see Austin actually doing that. It's interesting to see his opinions and views on some situations, such as the creation of the "Stone Cold" moniker and why he walked out on WWE after hearing about how he's supposed to lose to Brock Lesnar. You really get a feel for the Texas Rattlesnake in this book. He's honest with what he says, even when he gets to the topic of Owen Hart and his death. I give this book a full 5/5. Just a great read and definitely worth the money anyone would pay for it.
