This book was a true joy to read. It was brutally honest and you see the true side of Ted DiBiase. He literally is NOTHING like the character he portrayed on WWF television for nearly a decade. The book basically breaks up the story into three parts:
1. The first half of the book discusses his childhood and his relationship with his dad. It also describes his love of football and how he "grew up in the wrestling business." You become strongly aware of just how strong a family man he is. Over half of the book talks about his love for his dad, his grandmother and his family.
2. A quarter of the book talks about his wrestling career. You'll find out how he broke into the wrestling business and how he "paid his dues" working throughout the Mid-South, Texas, Kansas City, the East Coast and Georgia territories and how he became the "Million Dollar Man."
3. The rest of the book talks about how life on the road and its temptations nearly destroyed himself and his family and how he received redemption by finding God and Christ. The religious overtones of this book were obvious throughout its entirety but the story of how Jesus saved his life was a VERY powerful story and image throughout the ending of the book.
Overall, I would call this book a "Chicken Soup for the Christian's Soul." This book is a very powerful testament to the power of Christ, just as DiBiase had hoped it would be. It you are a wrestling fan looking for a little inside scoop or a little history to the wrestling business, or if you are a big DiBiase fan looking to learn a little more about him this book DOES deliver that. However, in the scheme of things that is just a mere side note to the book. The real message of the book is about finding salvation and repentance in the Lord.
DiBiase's story is really powerful, brutal, honest and emotional. I read this book in ONE sitting, total reading time about 5 hours. I literally did not put it down. You will enjoy this book.
