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!"

Decent, but too short

If this was the unabridged version, I definitely would have given it five stars easily.

Thank You Stone Cold Steve Austin!

Stone Cold has always been my favorite wrestler of ALL TIME. I truly appreciate hearing himself actually narrate his life story and how much blood, sweat and tears he poured into the Stone Cold persona. Thank You Austin! You're appreciated.

OH HELL YEAH

This book took me back to my childhood. Also to have Stone Cold and JR narrate made it that much better. Stone Cold is one of the greatest of all time and that the bottom line!

A good piece of history

It is a bit short. Seems like some topics are glossed over. Otherwise, a solid audio book.

And that’s the bottom line

Wrestling fans would love to hear this one. It’s made so much better because Austin narrated himself. We also have Jim Ross sprinkled in throughout giving his opinions which was pretty nice. It was great to see some of the behind-the-scenes stuff that I would’ve never paid attention to being a younger wrestling fan back in these days. One of the best things I found was actual audio from some of his promos from way back in the day being played throughout. It really gave the book more hype. It was also great to see how human most of the wrestling business is. They have the same struggles and some of the same problems as we do. Really great to have the curtain pulled back and this was just a really great and quick listen

Great story, but...

I swear, whenever I read the physical book that it was significantly longer. Still though, whether physical or digital, this is an essential story for any wrestling fan and especially any Stone Cold fan.
