"Every person that aspires to be a professional in this business should take notes from Ric Flair." ―John Cena
"After I did the film the wrestler, one of the greatest pro wrestlers approached me and congratulated me on my performance. The Nature Boy's compliment meant very much to me because he and Roddy Piper were inspiration for my character. Both Flair & Piper let it all hang out on many nights! I am certain that Ric Flair worked through the physical pain he endured year after year to give the audience a thrilling show. You could see it when Flair walked out to the ring― the man loved his job and loved his fans. He was and still is loved by millions all over the world. He gave all of himself. I loved the guy the first 30 seconds I meet him and was privileged to do a show in Houston with him. To this day I admire and look up to this great athlete & entertainer!"―MICKEY ROURKE
"Nobody compares to the stylin, profilin', limousine riding, jet flying, world-class entertainer and person, my friend, Ric Flair!"― Jim Harbaugh, University of Michigan.
"Even if people don’t know anything about WWE, they know who Ric Flair is. The man is a legend, an all around great guy! Give me 2 claps and a Ric Flair WOOOOO!” ―Rob Gronkowski 87
"I love Charlotte. She’s a talented female… And she carries herself. When she enters that damn arena, everybody comes to their feet when they hit that music. It’s a moment." ―Stone Cold Steve Austin
"I used to watch 'Nature Boy' Ric Flair and hope that one day I could be just like him, the coolest, most happening guy in the world. Today, I sit a humble and flabbergasted wrestling fan to have the honor of calling him a colleague and a friend." ―Shawn Michaels
"Having Ric Flair as a mentor made my career. Being under his wing helped me achieve more in this industry than I could have imagined." ―Batista
"It is not easy being a wrestler’s daughter. Charlotte always thinks she could do better. She is still so eager to learn and improve. She has been through a lot and it is rewarding to see her discovering her potential, which is limitless." ―Natalya

Charlotte's part of the book was better, but still not great. It's too early in her career to be writing a retrospectus on wrestling. Much like the Rock's original book, it's just too little, too soon. It was interesting to learn about her life and growing up with a dad who was never there, and also her first marriage, which was pretty abusive. I felt for her, which is a good sign, but there wasn't enough substance besides those parts. Her wrestling stories were okay, but she seemed to flip in and out of Kayfabe with them, losing me as a reader. I liked her, but I was left wishing this was written five-ten years from now.
Overall,. I'm glad I read this, but I can't really recommend it compared to the plethora of wrestling biographies that are out there which are so much better than this. I was left disappointed by the end result.
But this book coulda' stood a few more days of editing. Was it edited at all? It reads like everything Ric and Charlotte said was transcribed word-for-word.
Is the story good? Yeah, I guess. I learned a lot. Could the book have been a better, smoother read? Oh heck yeah!
