The Rock – The Rock Says

 

I was a big fan of this book, but then I was also a big fan of The Rock, and I first read this not long after its publication in 2000. I was eleven years old at the time, and so the story of Dwayne Johnson’s rise to fame and fortune, from American football to wrestling and acting, was like a form of escapism, a true story that was real enough to give me hope for the future whilst being distant enough to take me completely away from my own life.

I don’t have much in common with The Rock, but I do respect his drive, and he’d certainly led an interesting life even by the year 2000, when the book was published. Since then, his career has snowballed and he’s now a successful movie star, certainly on a par with many people who are actors only. In fact, it’s The Rock’s versatility which is so impressive – he’s the kind of guy who hustles, and who’s worked hard in everything that he’s done to repeatedly rise to the top of his game in different fields.

Even as a writer, The Rock is pretty good, although he did have some help (as most celebrities do). You can also expect to check out a selection of awesome photographs that show The Rock throughout the years, from his childhood to his career as a professional American footballer and, later, as a wrestler. It’s the sort of story that almost sounds too good to be true, but it isn’t – sometimes the truth is more interesting than fiction, and this is one of those examples. I’d recommend it!
