Mankind: A Tale of Blood & Sweatsocks - Mick Foley
Mick Foley is a nice man, a family man who loves amusement parks and eating ice cream in bed. So how to explain those Japanese death matches in rings with explosives, golden thumbtacks and barbed wire instead of rope? The second-degree burn tissue? And the missing ear that was ripped off during a bout-in which he kept fighting? Here is an intimate glimpse into Mick Foley's mind, his history, his work and what some might call his pathology. Now with a bonus chapter summarizing the past 15 months-from his experience as a bestselling author through his parting thoughts before his final match. A tale of blood, sweat, tears and more blood-all in his own words-straight from the twisted genius behind Cactus Jack, Dude Love, and Mankind.
Foley is Good & The Real World is Faker Than Wrestling - Mick Foley
No longer wrestling as Mankind, Mick Foley is now the Commissioner for the World Wrestling Federation, and his role has expanded to encompass plot lines ranging throughout the grand soap opera that the WWF telecasts have become. Written with his humour and honesty, Foley is Good touches on everything from the controversy surrounding "backyard wrestling" to the trials and tribulations of dealing with a fickle media as a Federation superstar. Filled with personal anecdotes, hilarious diatribes, inside dirt on the McMahon family and Al Snow jokes, "Foley is Good" is for all of the millions of rabid World Wrestling Federation fans.
The Hardcore Diaries - Mick Foley
The New York Times bestselling author Mick Foley returns to his fans favorite subject: Mick Foley and wrestling! What was I thinking? Another autobiography? A third? Who did I think I was, Winston Churchill? Why would I want to set my pen loose on hundreds of sheets of notebook paper unless I really felt I had something worth writing about? Besides, I had a wrestling comeback to prepare for, mentally and physically, provided I could get Vince McMahon and the WWE creative staff to embrace what I was sure was the single greatest storyline of my career. Then it hit me: the storyline. I would give WWE fans unprecedented access to World Wrestling Entertainment, covering everything from conception to completion. I would recount how I felt about specific interviews and matches, whether they helped or hurt. I would expose the backstage politics, shed some light on my rocky relationship with Vince McMahon, offer insights into my personal dealings with WWE Superstars, and tell stories about my favorite Divas. But I wasn't interested in writing just a wrestling book. I wanted to share moments from my personal life as well, from a humorous look at my unlikely dinner with polarizing neocon Paul Wolfowitz, to my haunting meeting with a severely burned boy in Afghanistan, to my peculiar obsession with a certain jolly old elf. I knew I could make the fans care about this storyline, provided I could once again find the passion to make the story come to life in arenas around the country and on television sets around the world. Most importantly, I had to ask myself a vital question, one upon which this whole idea, and therefore the book you hold, hinges: Was I willing to become the first voluntary member of the Vince McMahon "Kiss My Ass Club"? I sat on the idea for a few days, to let the idea ripen and mature in my mind, like a fine vintage wine, and to figure out if I was really willing to kiss his ass. I mean, literally kiss a man's ass. Sure, I'd been kissing the same guy's ass figuratively for a decade. But this was different. Did I really have the testicular fortitude required for such a task? In front of millions? Including my wife and kids? I made the call.
Countdown to Lockdown - Mick Foley
Mick Foley is back and Countdown to Lockdown tells us the story of his spectacular return, his last days with the WWE, as well as a blow-by-blow account of the five weeks leading up to the day when Mick faced off against one of his greatest opponents - 'The Icon' Sting. As one of the most bizarre and fearless stars of wrestling in recent times, Mick is known for taking extraordinary risks to remain at the peak of his game. Countdown to Lockdown is a no-holds-barred, behind the scenes account of his mental and physical preparation for the TNA Lockdown - in many ways, the most important wrestling match of his career. This is put in context with Foley's memories, thoughts and opinions of WWE as well as life outside the ring from the Benoit deaths and the 'Royal Rumble' to Sierra Leone and his meeting with former President Bill Clinton. Full of action from inside the ring, the drama of his last days with the WWE, Foley's trademark humour as well as an industry insider's view of professional wrestling today, Foley fans will not be disappointed.
Saint Mick : My Journey From Hardcore Legend to Santa's Jolly Elf Christmas Autobiography - Mick Foley
From beloved #1 New York Times bestselling author and WWE Hall-of-Famer Mick Foley comes a Yuletide tale like no other. After a lifetime of putting his body on the line to entertain his dozens (and dozens!) of fans, the Hardcore Legend is paying the price - physically and emotionally. When the final bell on Mick's career tolls, not in the ring, but in a neurologist's office, his future seems far from merry and bright. Until Mick is given the chance to become Santa Claus - not dress up, not pretend, but become Santa - allowing him to rediscover the joy of performing.
Fully committing to his new mission, Mick details the drastic measures he takes to keep the Christmas magic alive for his young children, as well as the many children he meets in his travels who are in need of some Christmas Spirit. In order to fully embrace his new red-suited responsibilities, Mick enters the fascinating world of the Santa subculture, where he hones his Christmas craft while worrying he'll be excommunicated from the Santa world for, among other things, his Santa character being run over by a motor vehicle on Christmas Eve on WWE television. But with the help of an unlikely elf - 8-time Grammy award winner Norah Jones - Mick learns valuable lessons about the real power and responsibility of wearing the red suit. Because true success as Santa comes not by appearing in front of millions on TV, but by touching peoples' lives by creating "Santa moments" for both the young and the young at heart.
Part jolly memoir, part whimsical ode to a lifetime love affair with Christmas, part solemn tribute to the power of finding the best part of oneself in the unlikeliest of places, Saint Mick offers the magic of Christmas on every single page.
With a foreword by Stephanie McMahon, and featuring never-before-seen photos of the whole Foley family!
