Publisher's Summary

He's wrestled under many names, "Stunning" Steve Austin, The Ringmaster, he even wrestled for a time under his own name, Steve Williams. But to fans he is and will always be Stone Cold Steve Austin. His quick wit and colorful use of language combined with his everyman character captured the hearts of fans worldwide. Steve grew up in a small town in Texas. Always a fan of wrestling, Steve seized the chance to study it at a school in Dallas. His ability to take the bumps and hard falls required by his new profession, and his never-say-die attitude, connected him with the fans and his fellow wrestlers. His capricious firing by the WCW, World Championship Wrestling, lead to his being hired by World Wrestling Entertainment. However, it was Steve's own ability inside the ring and his quick-witted responses that lead to his becoming one of the most popular WWE Superstars of all time. It seemed nothing could stop the Texas Rattlesnake, except himself. In 2001 Steve's life seemed to spiral out of control and he walked away from it all. Now, with his triumphal return to the world of professional wrestling, he is finally ready to tell his story, his, way. The Stone Cold Truth is an unvarnished take on his life, his loves, and his days as a wrestler told in a way that only he could, and you know it's the truth "'cause Stone Cold says so!"

Great Read

Short Simple and to the point. Just like Stone Cold. He told a few personal stories. And us know exactly how he feels about certain things and people in the wrestling business.

Good overview of Steves career

The performances are fine. The story is a little light. You can get all of this and more in his podcast but you would have to sift through hundreds of hours of audio to do so. If you know wrestling "theory" and you listen to Steves podcast this will be a repeat mostly for you. About 5-10% of the story is new material for me. If you want to spend a couple of hours to relive the attitude era with the toughest SOB in wrestling, it's a fun ride.
