Publisher's Summary

From beloved number one New York Times best-selling author and WWE Hall-of-Famer Mick Foley comes a Yuletide tale like no other.
After a lifetime of putting his body on the line to entertain his dozens (and dozens!) of fans, the Hardcore Legend is paying the price - physically and emotionally. When the final bell on Mick's career tolls, not in the ring, but in a neurologist's office, his future seems far from merry and bright. Until Mick is given the chance to become Santa Claus - not dress up, not pretend, but become Santa - allowing him to rediscover the joy of performing.
Fully committing to his new mission, Mick details the drastic measures he takes to keep the Christmas magic alive for his young children, as well as the many children he meets in his travels who are in need of some Christmas Spirit. In order to fully embrace his new red-suited responsibilities, Mick enters the fascinating world of the Santa subculture, where he hones his Christmas craft while worrying he'll be excommunicated from the Santa world for, among other things, his Santa character being run over by a motor vehicle on Christmas Eve on WWE television.
But with the help of an unlikely elf - eight-time Grammy Award winner Norah Jones - Mick learns valuable lessons about the real power and responsibility of wearing the red suit.

What the Critics Say

"Based on personal experience, I assure you that if Santa Claus and Mick Foley are not one and the same, they're at least closely related. Don't believe me? Then read Saint Mick, a beautifully written book by a man with a holiday-filled heart." (Jeff Guinn, New York Times best-selling author of The Autobiography of Santa Claus)

Absolutely Fantastic

I have never met Mick Foley and I don't know that it is likely I will ever have the pleasure. But he comes across as one of the kindest, most generous and decent people walking the earth today.

On Christmas Eve, I like to spend some time listening to 'A Christmas Carol' in audio. In 2018 that may be supplanted by 'Saint Mick'. This may be Foley's most heart felt book to date. Some of the stories are funny, some are emotional and all are wonderfully told in Mick's trademark fashion of grace, humor and honesty.

The saddest thing about the narration of this book is the fact that it reminds me that not enough of Mick's books are available in unabridged audio. Doing wrestling promos, it turns out, can translate well to audiobook narration because they both are about telling stories and conveying emotion. Near the end, Mick is fighting back tears and is clearly moved by what he is saying and it enhances the experience tremendously.

Highest recommendation.

Best one yet

Man, Mick Foley just keeps out doing himself when he writes. No need to be a wrestling fan to read this one because it’s about Christmas more than anything else. It’s enjoyable for anyone.
