Not a good book in any shape or form
This book is one of the least honest autobiographies I've ever read. After a while the comedy of his dishonesty turns to sadness, making you begin to think that maybe he really believes he never made a mistake, or failed at anything. He doesn't just distort things, he down right makes things up including stating that Mr. Nanny beat Ghostbusters II in direct competition at the box office.Was this review helpful?

Eventually you will understand that me measures his accomplishments in dollar signs, and if something didn't make money then he determines it to be a failure. As Hulk Hogan that is unacceptable, and rather than admit things didn't become the success he wanted, he instead glorifies them and builds them up to be things they weren't.
In terms of entertainment it is possible to enjoy this book, but not if you want a true story.
I don't recommend this book if it is going to cost you more than $5.
I would like to note that he was still involved with wrestling at the time he wrote this book, which forced him to not be entirely open about his life. I will be reading his second book, "My Life Outside the Ring" from 2009. I feel that once he wasn't so close to wrestling, and didn't have a character to protect, he could be more truthful. If you're on the fence between the two I would go in that direction.
