      If you’ve been a fan of wrestling for any length of time, it is highly likely you are familiar with the name Bret Hart. The Hitman was one of the greatest wrestlers of all time but also had a storied and controversial career. That’s why I was excited when I had got a chance to read his autobiography. The thing with Wrestling Autobiographies is that I’ve read some great one’s, like Mick Foley’s books and some bad one’s, like Hulk Hogan. But how did Bret Hart’s book fare. Pretty

      well actually.

      The story of Bret Hart’s life and career is told in amazing detail. I was drawn into the book. It was almost like that the Hitman was there sitting right next to me, telling me his story. The fact that he took detailed notes and brought a tape recorder on the road. It showed and this story was at a quality that was second to none. From Bret’s beginnings in Stampede Wrestling to his early days in WWF to his rise in the Hart Foundation and to ...


      • a singles star as World Champion to the infamous Montreal Screwjob to his botched run in WCW to the tragic end of a storied career with multiple concussions. Along with each and every other moment along the way. All the excitement, all the tragedy, all the intrigue, everything. The book is so deep that it requires an index, which is something that no other wrestling autobiography that I’ve read has contained.

        And Bret pulls no punches. He doesn’t try to hide his wrongdoings but he also calls those who

        he doesn’t like out. Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels, and even his own family and that’s just scratching the surface, adding to the engrossment factor of the book. The destruction of what was once a storied wrestling family in the Harts is sad to read but yet compelling. In a world without the Von Erichs and all the tragedy surrounding them, the Harts would win running away.

        Overall, I give the book the highest recommendation possible. If you’re a diehard Wrestling fan, I would suggest adding it to your library.
