It is a true "insider's" perspective. Bret seems to remember in great detail every decision, every match, every conversation he had in the business. The reader can tell this is his book. His memories. His words. The events of the Montreal Screwjob alone is worth the price as Bret recounts in vivid detail his thoughts throughout the whole process and the aftermath.
We get a look inside the legendary Hart Family. The trials and tribulations. The pinnacle of success at In Your House Canadian Stampede in Calgary with the entire family in the ring to the tragedy of the Screwjob, the deaths of Owen and Davey, the bitter betrayals and the aftermath. Truly riveting book.
Completely agree with you about this book. I wonder what the book would have looked like if he didn't have to edit it to fit one book since I heard that this was supposed to be three books because of how much Bret actually wrote.
