Let me start by saying while i know the wrestling scene/business pretty well, i'm not a fan of Hulk Hogan. He manipulated the system to his own advantage's like no other.
This book is propaganda at it's highest form. From a woman who was nothing and still is nothing. Who basked in her husband's fame and the perks that go with it (none gotten on her own, mind you, it was ALL Terry's). This is the kind of woman who would lean over and stick her face in a camera trained on her husband to try and get her own "15 minutes".
I wasn't there, none of was were. But i find it hard to believe almost all of these exaggerations and so do most of the people who WERE as close you possibly could be.
The likely lies and exaggerations in this book are many and are numerous. Not only did this woman use Hulk for his money and bank accounts to give her riches and possessions she never deserved, but her family and her family's businesses also took advantage of Hulk's money.
She doesn't deserve a book and doesn't deserve any of the "face" time she's getting. A true 'user' and real-life gold-digger, its a shame there's people out there like this. Poorly written as well and again...most of it is just really hard to believe. I'm glad i got my hands on a copy that was passed to me, instead of buying this trash. AVOID at all costs.

Format: Hardcover
Linda Hogan is making a play for sympathy in this lop-sided book that is so absurd that it bears little resemblance to reality. She tries to play the innocent, selfless, dedicated wife--yet what comes through is a brainless spoiled brat who latched on to someone who would give her anything and then complains about the down side of fame.

This book feels like her attempt to sway the courts and public opinion in her favor in the battle over her dissolved marriage. On almost every page she paints herself as a saintly, lowly servant who suspects her husband is cheating, yet she says nothing to him about it. The one time he does pull her aside to tell her about another woman, she isn't smart enough to stand up for herself and instead enables him to continue his behavior.

The fact that she thinks we'll sympathize with her proves how out of touch she is with her own reality. Hulk is no angel but the picture she paints of herself is of a ditzy golddigger (she even complains about the $9 million house they build) who likes his rough sex and wants to live the good life so much that she doesn't ever really stand up for herself. It's clear that her attitude came from parents who always told her how wonderful she was, no matter who she slept with or what bad choice she made. She makes absurd statements like, "Linda was always the last person on my priority list." No--she always appeared to place her selfish feelings first and never really dealt head-on with life's circumstances.

The other question is just who wrote this book? This woman whose career was doing nails and only had a high school education? I doubt it. No ghost writer or co-author is named. It's all too neat and tidy for a woman of her limited education to write.

I would've loved to have liked this book, however, I just couldn't get past the 9th grade reading level the writer used to create her story. It was a simple, simple read, but way too easy. The book would've been better with heartier words and more expressive language.

There was a feeling that there was a lot of "filler" items to make the book a bit longer (as the book is a thin, short, easy read as it is.)

I was not interested, I was bored to tears, and I would not recommend this book.

As a Hulk Hogan fan in my youth, I was interested in his book (My Life Outside the Ring). After the read, I read Linda's book primarily because of the way Hulk trashed her through most of his book. The other side of the coin, reveals Hogan's many infidelities, & abusive behavior. I can't say Linda comes off as a saint either. The book was an easy read, & recommended along with the Hulksters.

If your planning to read this book to get the she said side of the story, make sure to read her husband's book first. There are alot of times Linda Hogan starts to talk about an event, assuming the reader already knows what she is talking about. In order to get the most out of this book, read her husband's side first from his book, then read this one. Otherwise you may get lost. All in all a guilty pleasure to read. Really intersting to get both sides of the story and to see how different they really are. Don't expect too much out of this book.

I bought the book to read Linda's story. The story she tells just does not ring true. If you watched the show Hogan knows best, and followed all that went on in the divorce, her boyfriend...etc. It does not ring true.

Was very interesting to read the "other side" of the story. If you read Hulk Hogan my like outside the ring, or you have followed the divorce it is only fair to hear at least some of the other side. Over all the book was interesting and explained some of Linda's feelings going through the turmoil or marring and divorcing Hulk Hogan. Although she didn't get into the final disposition of the settlement you get a good idea.
