Amazon.de

Hot on the bleeding heels of Mankind's Have a Nice Day! comes another memoir by a bad-guy character World Wrestling Federation fans love to hate, edited by the same prose coach, the clever Jeremie Ruby-Strauss (and coauthored by Joe Layden). Dwayne Johnson, a.k.a. the Rock--who calls himself "the People's Champion," affects an arched eyebrow to convey entertaining menace, and coins catch phrases like a standup comic--gives you plenty of colorful, jumbled action photos and the growling accounts of staged mayhem that made Mankind's book a bestseller. But his story is more interesting than that of Mankind, his occasional ring rival. The noisy action chapters alternate with passages of more reflective conventional autobiography: the Rock is a third-generation pro wrestler, and his book amounts to a history of the sport. His grandpa, High Chief Peter Maivia, was a Samoan important enough to be buried in Diamond Head's crater, and his dad, Rocky Johnson, was George Foreman's sparring partner and the first African American World Wrestling Federation Intercontinental champ. The Rock is candid about the battles his family faced outside the ring: the marriage-testing road lifestyle, his dad's most important win (over the bottle), and the author's own dangerous temper. There's something touching about the Rock's unpromising debut in his uncle Tonga's old trunks, in his reverence for his elders--and something scary about his reaction when he thinks people lack such respect.

What, you say? You'd rather hear about the Rock's "schmozz" (free-for-all) with Mankind, or Faarooq and the interracial Nation of Domination, or that Budweiser-popping piece of trailer trash Stone Cold Steve Austin, or the Undertaker, whose skin is "the color of bad meat"? You want to hear how he started out sleeping on a pungent mattress retrieved from a garbage dump and wound up wearing Versace shirts and chatting up Gennifer Flowers on TV at WrestleMania XIV? You crave the secrets of the Frankenstein, the Gorilla Position, Jake the Snake, and Mankind's Mandible Claw (a dirty sock he shoves down opponents' throats)? That's all here, too. Just hop in the ring--the Rock will show you around. --Tim Appelo

Rezension zu The Rocks Biografie??!! Dwayne ist und wird für immer der Beste bleiben. Das Buch ist super gut aufgebaut und Dwayne gibt einem die Möglichkeit hinter die Kulissen der WWF und hinter die Kulissen seines Lebens zu blicken. Ich habe vor Dwayne Johnson und der gesamten WWF einen riesiges Maß an Respekt. Jeder der The Rock kennt mag ihn und jeder der Dwayne kennt mag ihn auch. Das ist das Beste was ich jemals gelesen habe. Leute kauft es!!! If ya smell what The Rock is cookin!!!

I've been a wrestling fan most of my life, and as an adult, I've been fascinated with the behind-the-scenes aspect, the business part of it. I thought Mick Foley's "Have a Nice Day" was tremendous, and looked equally forward to this book. It's not as good as that work, but "The Rock Says. . ." is a decent book in its own right.
Yes, I was disappointed that the Rock (Dwane Johnson) didn't write the book all by itself. I also didn't care for the sections that were esentially play-by-plays of various matches as seen through the Rock's (the character, not Dwane Johnson's) eyes. I was familar with those matches and they were mostly a distraction from the book. I would have also liked to have seen more about his interactions with current co-workers Mankind and HHH. But I'll review this book for what it is, not what it isn't.
Dwane's story, the Rock's story . . . now that was entertaining. I was thoroughly engrossed, and couldn't put the book down. It was a quick read, but I really enjoyed his story, how he got to be "the most electrifying man in sports entertainment." It's great to see the man behind the character. It was also very cool seeing all the insights behind the scenes of pro wrestling. Dwane Johnson is an honest, compassionate, hard-working, and entertaining guy, and "The Rock Says. . ." is a very worthwhile read for anyone, wrestling fan or not.

I have recently read The Rock's book, "The Rock Says..." and I could not put it down. I think that for a man of his professional status and age, he has accomplished a lot both personally and professionally. The Rock went into depth about his own persona and the WWF. He really explained to us how it's done...how he likes to get it done. He did layeth the smaketh down and he brought it on! Being a 23 year old female, I happen to find this man distinguished, defined, intelligent, charsmatic and hot! On the side note, I had the chance to run into The Rock in Philadelphia March 26, 1999 . He was here for Wrestlemania and I accidentially ran into him at a local night club. I knew of him but did not know much about his professional image. While I was passing him, I turned to him and with hopeful doubt I asked, "Rock? " He turned his head, wearing his $200 sunglasses, smiled and gave me " The People's Eyebrow". From that moment on...I have been a fan of The Rock. After reading his book, I am glad to say that I have met "The People's Champion" because in my mind, he is a Champion to the people!

The Rock, on the heels of the first original wrestling book (Mankind's Have a Nice Day) this book is no copy. I ordered this book before it came out here on Amazon.com. I read it quickly and diligently and it is an excellent read. It starts with Rock's family and his teenage years and michtef (you'll see what I'm talking about one you read the book). Then it moves into his college years. Him strating in to wrestling. Meeting a woman (Dany) and marrying her dispite her parents wishes and then it showes how hard Rocky works from a bad wrestler to a good wrestler. You'll see what I'm talking about. If you don't order this book that was at the top of the New York Times best selling list then your're really missing out.

Although this book was obviously meant to cash in on the wrestling biography craze that started with Mick Foley's "Have A Nice Day," it does have many interesting points. I found his comments about other wrestlers, his match with Steve Austin at Wrestlemania, and his tribute to the late Owen Hart particulary intriguing. However, even though I am a big fan of The Rock, I must say that I was a little disappointed after turning the last page. This book does not hold a candle to Mick Foley's "tale of blood and sweatsocks." In his autobiography, Foley bounces around between different wrestling organizations (some even in in other countries), thoroughly describing his legendary matches along with some humorous insight as to what goes on behind the scenes of the business. Basically, Dwayne Johnson's story goes like this: Born a natural athelete into a family with a rich wrestling history, he excelled in sports, had a brief stint as a star college football player and then went straight to the top of the World Wrestling Federation within a few years of his debut. Not exactly the most inspirational story. Another thing that irks me is the chapters with the "Rock Talk." Although the writing is amusing, I bought the book to read about the man behind the character that I watch on TV every week. Still, this book is worth the money. Just make sure you read it before Mankind's book, or you will be in for a disappointment.
