Okay, this book is not the most well written piece of work ever. It's very simple, there are chapters that could have been left out, and the friends testimonials i think would have been better served in chapters dedicated to each person, or in some other fashion to make them less disjointed and more interesting... that being said... It's an autobiography of the Million Dollar Man, Ted Dibiase!! For what it does lack in literary sense, it more than makes up with the ability to take those of us who grew up at the height of professional wrestling and put us right back there in front of the tv, watching saturday nights main event. Dibiase was just about the ultimate heel in his day...from kicking basketballs out of kids hands (I was there!!) to buying the WWF belt in a contested finish of a Hogan/Giant match, he epitomised everything that as an 8 year old I would root with my heart against. And that is where this book holds it's big value and why I gave it four stars. Even though simple, it takes you back. It's a great trip back to an awesome time when you were young and funny enough, wrestling mattered. I've tried to watch it here and there since then, even gone to some live events in which I've gotten free tickets, yet nothing will ever in my eyes live up to it's heyday. And this book helps remind of that. If you were at all a fan of wrestling in the 80's and early 90's, this book will provide a fun ride for you.
