Also, there is really no discussion of his movie career. By and large the stories he does tell are great but I got the feeling you could write a book out of the stuff that was omitted from this book. Finally, the writing is just pretty bad. Many things aren't written clearly, things were obviously written out of sequence and things not explained initially, are revisited again later, etc. I put the blame for all of this on the book's ghost writer and editor. Piper's personality and gregariousness certainly comes through and it's the only thing that saves the book. Great story, poorly produced Kindle version.
Roddy Piper was an arrogant, opinionated loud mouth. He was also one of my favorite wrestlers. He wrote a great book, didn't hold back. A great read for any wrestling fan. The Kindle version of the book contains the pictures advertised on the cover, however, they display on my Kindle Fire HDX as black mostly and white photocopies.
Mar 04, Tom rated it did not like it. I promise, I'm reading all these wrestler autobiographies as research. Mediocre writing and it overlooks the most compelling aspects of the story in the way that most celebrity autobiographies do. Mar 21, Steve rated it it was ok Shelves: wrestling. This was a self-indulgent book that did nothing for my sympathy for Mr. As a fellow Canadian, I would expect a better criticism of the wrestling world, not just a critic of the P, or McMahon.
I am no way, a mark for McMahon but Roddy started the book off really good, and then kind of dwindle off on these tirades, littered with side stories that made me feel completely misdirected. Overall, just very disappointing. Apr 28, George rated it really liked it. Jan 01, Mr. Pease rated it really liked it. A highly-entertaining read for wrestling fans, especially those who know the call-it-as-he-sees-it style of Hot Rod. Some inflammatory comments are certainly questionable in their accuracy, but true fans of wrestling know that half-truths and allegations are part of the charm.
Apr 13, Trent Zelazny rated it it was amazing. Fascinating story about the life of a very fascinating man. You don't much need to be into pro wrestling to appreciate this bio. What a character, and one of my biggest childhood heroes.
My only complaint is that I wanted it to be longer. Aug 03, Tim Dunn rated it really liked it. This is a book that probably should have been bigger, and maybe some day he'll come out with another that will tell even more stories Jul 06, Big rated it it was ok. I was rather disappointed with this book. Roddy Piper is one of the most creative and innovative characters whoever entered the squared circle, but his book was rather uninteresting.
It seemed as if Roddy had a chip on his shoulder and didn't lose it throughout the whole book. Jun 23, Bobby Parker rated it really liked it. Really awesome.
Crazy, crazy wrestling stories. What a crazy world. Aug 30, D rated it liked it Recommends it for: hardcore piper fans only. It flew through , peak years in WWF. Aug 11, Brent Darling rated it it was ok. Easy read, I ripped through it in a few hours. But overall, a letdown. Jun 10, Matt Murphy rated it liked it. An okay autobiography, but as I've written about many old-school wrestlers' books, it's hard to believe everything that's written in it.
That said, the story itself was entertaining. Apr 19, Nila rated it really liked it. I love Piper and I miss Pipers pit but I am glad he came back into wrestling awhile ago. I bought my book autographed on-line,love it! Apr 16, Donovan Rowlands rated it liked it. It was the perfect light read for me after reading 3 books from ex Scientology members.

Sep 24, Bret added it. Not really a book; more like a guy talking into a tape recorder and another guy writing it down into paragraphs.
Feb 10, Arsenio Peraza rated it it was amazing. A must read for the true wrestling fan. A read about how Roddy Piper came up threw the ranks in wrestling. View 1 comment. Oct 23, Lydia A.
