The Rock Says: The Most Electrifying Man in Sports-Entertainment

by Dwayne Johnson with Joe Layden

New York Times Bestseller

In this action-packed, revealing and outrageously funny memoir, WWE Superstar Dwayne Johnson (a.k.a. The Rock) recounts his life in and out of the ring with unapologetic honesty and inimitable style. From his boyhood days traveling around the world with his father (professional wrestler Rocky Johnson) to his years as a football player at the University of Miami to his meteoric rise through the ranks of the Federation, The Rock Says. . . chronicles in vivid detail the life story of one of sports-entertainment's most innovative and best-loved personalities.

The Rock takes fans on a guided tour of big-time professional wrestling, a highly competitive business in which a handful of gifted and lucky performers dominate, and all others dream of a moment in the spotlight. He provides a breathtaking, minute-by-minute account of Wrestle Mania, the Super Bowl of pro wrestling, including an intimate backstage look at rehearsals with his opponent, Stone Cold Steve Austin. And he discusses in heartfelt detail the loss of his friend and co-worker, Owen Hart. Filled with genuinely touching stories of love and strife, hilarious anecdotes and dozens of previously unpublished photographs from Johnson's personal collection, The Rock Says. . . is -- as The Rock himself might put it -- "the coolest thing since the other side of the pillow if you smell what The Rock is cookin'."
