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.

As Told By the One and Only Steve Austin Himself

Loved it, as well as enjoyed. Very well told, by Stone Cold Steve Austin. I just wish the story was a little bit longer.

Good book

I have the hard cover but having Stone Cold and JR read it to you is even better.

Great Story From A Legend

Great Biography from the legendary Stone Cold. I've learned so much about his struggles in the wrestling business and how he overcomes his medical hardships. He's definitely the toughest SOB around and his story proves it. Very motivational and Highly recommend. Also check out his podcast The Steve Austin Show where he interviews other legends on the wrestling business, letting them tell their stories and what they've dealt with in life and the wrestling business.

Awsome!

I like this book because though it's short, its straight to the point. If you were a stone cold fan growing up like I was, you probably think you know everything there is to know about the character, however , this is told from a different perspective and it really feels like your childhood hero is opening up to you and answering all your questions. Give this book a shot, it's worth it.
