    I almost never write reviews on Amazon, but I feel so strongly about this piece of garbage book and the trouble I had in getting it that I must write a review.First of all, I ordered this book from Amazon and spent more money for 1 day shipping than the book itself cost. I wanted the book as soon as possible since I have read Have A Nice Day 10 times and Foley Is Good 5 times from cover to cover. Though the book was listed as being immediately in stock it took Amazon almost a week to send me my copy. At least Amazon refunded my shipping cost, but their delay in sending it to me almost made me get it too late to be able to read it while on vacation from work.Actually, I wish I had never read this book. Due to my "testicular fortitude" as Foley would put it; I was able to read the book in 2 days. It was quite an ordeal and I will regret never getting back the hours of my life I wasted reading this muck. I will now share with you the major faults of this book so you will not have to waste your lives on it.1. The book is the worst edited and written book in the history of literature. It is filled with poor grammar and other writing errors, which I could live with. What I can not live with is the rambling structure of this mess that makes it incomprehensible. One chapter is on One Night Stand 2006, the next is on him visiting some sick kid some place, the next is on him wrestling Randy Orton in 2004, and so on in a muddled mass of confusion that is hard to follow.2. Paul Heyman and Mick Foley have heat with each other because Heyman bad mouthed Foley in a writing meeting. That is the only thing you will learn about professional wrestling if you read this book that you can not read for free on internet wrestling web sites. Everything else is the general bashing of Vince McMahon (yet not his no talent daughter who actually writes all the shows), Triple H, and Shawn Michaels you can read on any web site along with general bashing of unnamed people behind the scenes. Details are very few in this so called tell all and things that were promised to be in this book such as Flair and Foley sitting next to each other talking over their differences on an airplane back from Afghanistan are not in here.3. Mick Foley likes to visit sick / injured / dying people. One anecdote about Foley's charitable work would be okay (though he has already written about it ad nausea in other places), but it is half the book. Foley stroking himself over what a great humanitarian he is gets real sickening real quick. The whole McMahon organization does tons of charitable stuff, but nobody else needs to prattle on about it like Foley does.4. Foley is a great liberal hero and if you are a conservative you are a bad person (Foley says it in his book). Personally, I am libertarian and not a huge George Bush fan, but the Foley bashing in this book of George Bush and all conservatives is enough to make anyone besides the most tree hugging left wing nut case sick. If Foley wanted to make some type of pointed and thought provoking political argument it might be okay (though it really does not belong in a wrestling book), but Foley just likes hurling insults at members of the current administration and conservatives as a whole. The worst part of any Foley biography up to now was the end of Foley Is Good where he went on a rambling left wing analysis of why Joseph Lieberman is a great person (though Lieberman has made it clear he wants to ban wrestling and most of what is on television), but here he took that 1 part and made it into most of the book.5. The Mick Foley who wrote this book is not the same Mick Foley fans came to love and adore through his first 2 books and when he first became a WWF main eventer. Foley is now a self obsessed has been who is more worried about his wrestling legacy and name dropping B list celebrities he knows than giving fans what they want. Why give wrestling fans the story of Brian Gerwirtz (head Raw writer) attending a Ring Of Honor show to scout new talent when you can write 5 boring chapters on your kid being a religious zealot instead? Foley has no gratitude to McMahon, who made him a star, and every time Foley does not get his way it is a conspiracy against his legendary status (according to Foley he was the main event of One Night Stand, though Cena / RVD was always clearly billed as the main event).If you have to read it, check this book out of the library.

    MICK FOLEYHARDCORE DIARIES I still remember when Mick released his first autobiography all those years ago, now many moons later Mick returns to the form that started it all with his third [yes that is 3rd] autobiography. Originally this was to be a book chronicling Vince and Wrestlemania, but it turned into this. I honestly would rather have this book then that Wrestlemania one, at least for now. The book starts off nice talking about how this book came about and about the excellent idea he had to make a hell turn. As you find out later that heel turn didn't happen exactly like he had planed. It turns out he was the mastermind behind him joining Vince's kissing club, of course different things happened and it all changed after a while. Like most people I bought this book to learn about all the little dirty secrets about Vince and the WWE, but I found myself being more interested in Mick's personal experiences in events not related to the WWE. Some of those include Mick's experiences with hurt soldiers, sure some of the trips were made with the WWE but others were not. Other great reading experiences I had dealt with the charity stories Mick tells about in this book, the Batman & Robin story is a fav. It was these stories that made Mick seem more real to me, he wasn't just the guy on TV anymore that became a hardcore legend. Of course WWE related tales do arise with in these pages, his account of how Vince and the executives at the WWE changed his whole story line around was a very entertaining read. The ECW storyline ended up being one of the best in the book about his recent come back, you also find out that Terry Funk not showing up for Mick's award on RAW years ago is true, he no showed because he wasn't getting enough money to support his friend. But other accounts in this book are great as well; his interaction with Candice Michelle is funny. And the time he took of writing his fiction books is covered in this as well; this is one of the better things about the book. This book is a worthy addition to his now classic trilogy.
