The Hardcore Diaries is my first taste of Mick Foley's writing and I found it enjoyable reading. Foley has a conversational style of writing that is easy to follow, even with not to perfect grammar like tense changes, especially as he's describing what he's best known for actions within the squared circle. Although the book's main theme of storyline conception to completion is fascinating and Foley's emotional roller coaster connected is great, I found his side stories fun, enjoyable, and humbling additions. Though Foley's repeated references to a porn star and chair shots to the head do get a little tiring close to the end of the book, overall I usually glossed over them. Given this is my first Mick Foley book, I very interested to read his first two biographical efforts which seemed to more regarded than The Hardcore Diaries. ( )

Meh. I think that I would have enjoyed his other nonfiction books more. I think that he is an interesting guy and very genuine. The backstage look at the WWE is interesting, but ultimately a very long book to follow him for six weeks. Also, I found the actual wrestling plotline hard to follow because he veered off on so many tangents. I enjoyed his tangents more than the plot, but it made it difficult to pick up where he last left off regarding the WWE and WCW(TNA? I don't even remember, and I just finished the book.). ( )

Though previous Foley non-fictions covered long spans of time in his wrestling career, 'Hardcore' centers on his attempt to sell a storyline to first the WWE decision makers, and then the crowd. Humorous, informative, and another great Foley read. ( )

Like his in-ring work, his autobiographies have grown old and tired. ( )
