I have to admit, I never really was a DDP fan. I remember watching DDP rising through the ranks in WCW a few years back and saying to myself, "Why is WCW pushing this guy? Who is this guy?" But after reading The Rock's and Mick Foley's books, I decided to buy DDP's book, as my thirst for more insight into the world of wrestling continued to grow. My attitude towards DDP quickly changed as I was introduced to the trials and tribulations of DDP's road to wrestling. This man is truly an inspiration not only to wrestling fans, but to anyone who has ever had a dream to succeed in life. DDP's will to overcome negatives from the bottom of the Yo-Yo and turn them into positives is remarkable. 'Positively Page' is a gem of a book and I enjoyed every page of it. DDP's will to overcome his reading disability and then write his own book is beyond words. After reading 'Positively Page,' am I now a DDP mark? Positively yes! Thank you for the inspiration DDP. In conclusion, to quote DDP, "The pleasure was all yours!" BANG! Chris

This is a biased review. I'm gonna "mark out" on an old friend, but if you can't support your buddies, then what kinda buddy are you?
This is a great read for any wrestling fan. Provides a great perspective of what goes on "behind the curtain" in the WCW and what it takes to become a "Main Event" wrestler. It's a real metaphor for life in any other avenue, be it getting a good idea past the mind numbing middle management morons in Corporate America or accomplishing a personal dream.
Smokey (the author) has really done a great job of structuring the story of a guy who has lead, by any measure, a most unstructured life.
From the Page perspective, his book illustrates the power of personal conviction, what a person can do to overcome obstacles that life throws at them. Even if some obstacles are occasionally self inflicted, Page demonstrates how he overcame some bad habits, refused negative thinking, demonstrated the ability, and if I may, the humility to admit his mistakes and reinvent himself. That's right... I used "humility" to describe an attribute of Page Falkinburg.
Bottom line, it's a great motivational book, not by preaching, but by relating personal defeats, setbacks and victories by example. You can't help but to pick up on the energy level of Page.
It's been a long ride from the dart games at the Moby, hey buddy?

I may be one of the few that remember seeing page on the old Florida Championship Wrestling Show. Even then something about him left an impression on me. When he reemerged on the scene in WCW a few years ago I was immediately drawn in by his arrogant, over the top self reliance. When he hit it big with the Diamond Cutter heard round the world on Scott Hall a couple of years ago, I became a fan for life. In this day and age, who would have thought that a professional wrestler would be a good role model? This book entails everything that I admire about Page. His self reliance, His refusal to quit in the face of adversity, and above all his commitment to the people who support him week in and week out. This book is not just a biography, it's an inspirational and motivational story of someone who has worked for everything he has. If you read this book and don't get excited and pumped up about following your dreams, nothing will. Buy the book, and encourage everyone you know to do the same. FEEL THE BANG!

I was never a big Diamond Dallas Page fan. I have followed him since his beginnings with FCW. I have enjoyed watching him but not was too crazy about him. Maybe he sold me into his gimmick. I bought the book because I am very interested in the world outside the ring and the stuggles it takes to make in the sport. After reading this book, I am definately a 'mark' for the man, Page Falkenburg and a new found respect for the wrestler, DDP. This is a very interesting book and very well written. I like the way it was written with all the inputs of other people in his life. To me, this book is right up there with Mick Foley's book and better than the Rock's. It is well worth reading. Page Falkenburg is definately, one special person.

Diamond Dallas Page has a great story to tell. Unfortunately, he could have used a better writer to tell it.
I admire him for overcoming his inability to read, and perhaps that's why the book's style is so elementary -- from the inconsistencies in the spelling of people's names to the quote marks around each slang term, even those widely accepted and understood.
Also less than credible were the infomercial-like testimonials that appeared throughout the book, especially those with factual errors, like the buddy who thanked Page for a ticket to the NBA All-Star Game at Madison Square Garden, where he saw his heroes, including Patrick Ewing, on the court. (Patrick Ewing was injured for that game and not elected to the All-Star Game.)
It serves as a decent account of how a wrestler climbs the ladder of success, but fails to give away any in-the-ring secrets. I know none of the bumps are fake, but it would still be insightful to learn how to deliver and sell even the most innocuous blows.
That's my review on the book, but not the man. Diamond Dallas Page is one of my favorite wrestlers and a man to be commended for his positive attitude and contribution to entertainment and the education of children.
If you buy this book, I hope that you enjoy it.
