Mick Foley is a nice man, a family man who loves amusement parks and eating ice cream in bed. So how to explain those Japanese death matches in rings with explosives, golden thumbtacks and barbed wire instead of rope? The second-degree burn tissue? And the missing ear that was ripped off during a bout-in which he kept fighting? Here is an intimate glimpse into Mick Foley's mind, his history, his work and what some might call his pathology. Now with a bonus chapter summarizing the past 15 months-from his experience as a bestselling author through his parting thoughts before his final match. A tale of blood, sweat, tears and more blood-all in his own words-straight from the twisted genius behind Cactus Jack, Dude Love, and Mankind.

From Our Editors

Have A Nice Day by Mick Foley details his endeavours as he fights his way through life. Foley explains all the gory fights endured and the foes he has crushed. His unique story of how he lost most of his ear receives another telling here along with full colour photographs of the event. In a fight with Vader, in which, after getting a dislocated jaw, a broken nose, and 21 stitches in the first match, Foley did his “hangman” routine, wherein he offers the illusion being hanged by his neck between the second and third ropes while his body kicks and writhes in spasms, the crowd loved it. However in one bout, unbeknownst to his opponent, Too Cold Scorpio had had the officials tighten the ropes. In the end, Foley tore off his ear to avoid death by strangulation.

Editorial Reviews

"Captivating . . . Much more than a story about aprofessional wrestler . . . Honest, often hilarious andsometimes moving." (Richmond Times-Dispatch)

Employee Review

In the world of professional wrestling, Mick Foley is so revered that many fans proclaim "Foley is God." In this honest and accessible look behind the scenes of professional wrestling, Foley introduces us to such bizarre yet fascinating rituals as the Japanese death match, where wrestling ropes are replaced with barbed wire and C4 explosives surround the ring. The author, who wrote this engaging memoir without the aid of a ghostwriter, recounts his career with the same cheerful abandon he brought to all his matches. This may be a wrestling book, but it's not just for wrestling fans.
