Rate this:
A no-holds-barred account of the often surreal, physically and psychologically brutal and politically cut-throat world of professional wrestling that fans everywhere - from the most casual or sceptical observer to the most rabid, hardcore aficionado - have truly been waiting for. Hart gets to the heart of the wrestling business, taking readers behind the scenes to discuss how wrestling should be booked, the toll steroids and other drugs have taken on his friends and family and what it was like to write his brother Bret's columns while The Hitman was on the road.

Kinda sad Hart Legacy Wrestling didn't take off. Better than the soap opera WWE crap..
Really enjoyed reading this book.
Rates up there with Brett's bio.

"In his new biography, Hart describes with acuity life growing up in the bizarre, circus-like world of wrestling, his brief stint in the WWF in the early 1990s with his famous brothers, Bret and Owen, and struggling to raise a large family of his own in Calgary.....
It may just be the latest chronicle in Calgary’s Hart family saga – a saga that spans half a century – but Bruce Hart’s acute reporting paints a quintessential morality play of a Canadian independent company (and family) fighting for its identity during the years of Ronald Reagan's cash-crazed America."
