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.

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.

Great Book for Stone Cold Fans

If you are interested in Stone Cold Steve Austin, this is the book for you. Not too long but not too short. The best part is that is narrated by Austin himself with some by good ole JR. Gives an insight into some of his thoughts and explains the whole “Took my ball and went home” deal. Would recommend this to any wrestling fan.

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.
