Rated 2 out of 5 by from Interesting Man, Poorly written. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is certainly an interesting man, however "Rock Says" is a poorly written effort that doesn't stand up to a number of other wrestler biographys (especially Mick "Mankind's" books.). The book has a number of "In character" passages where the Rock refers to himself in the Third person and writes as if he was doing a interview on Monday Night Raw. This is entertaining on television but in a book it comes across as corny and it makes it hard to take The Rock seriously. The Rock would have been better served by a better editor and by leaving the character in the ring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Rock Says..... This is the best biography ever.With the Rock's complacated life, it's very interesting to read about his early child life on the road to winning the WWF Championship for the first time.I found that the best part of the book was his review of that memorable match at Wrestlemania 15 against Stone Cold Steve Austin. I'd recommend this book to any Wrestling fans cause in the end you'll Smell What The Rock Is Cooking!
