From the Publisher
The undisputed king of the literary ring is back with another
handwritten, hardcore home run. Forget the ghost writer and the
computer keyboard - this mesmerizing memoir is straight from the
pen and notebook paper of the Hardcore Legend, Mick Foley,
chronicling the heart-pounding build-up to "Lockdown", one of the
most important matches of his long and storied career. Foley''s
every limit is tested, as he battles back the formidable tag-team
of Father Time and Mother Nature - overcoming a host of injuries
and serious self-doubts to get back in the ring with one of his
all-time favorite foes. With his trademark blend of wit and wisdom,
wildness and warmth, Foley dishes previously untold stories from
his remarkable life, including his transition from WWE to TNA, his
ill-fated stint as a television commentator, his tumultuous
relationship with Vince McMahon, his thoughts on performance
enhancing substances in sports, the troubling list of wrestlers
dying way too young, and his soul saving work in Sierra Leone.
Raw, dynamic, and unabashedly honest, COUNTDOWN TO
LOCKDOWN charts Foley''s wrestling rebirth, and rise to
heights that his fans thought he would never see again.
