Bret Hart, the Canadian icon from Calgary, Alberta, has grappled with the greatest wrestlers on the globe, proving himself as The Excellence of Execution in the squared circle. He is an actor and a trainer. His technical and athletic ability have earned him the right to proclaim himself. This is his illustrated authorised biography.

Yet another leotard-dressed, long haired muscleman makes takes a leap out of the wrestling ring and into the world of book publishing--this time it's Bret "The Hitman" Hart who dresses in pink and has a patented wrestling move to crush his opponents in the ring.
Following on from the rather weighty tomes produced by wrestling stars such as The Rock and Mankind , Hitman's story is told in big writing and big pictures, making this more suited to the adolescent fan base of wrestling than the other more wordy entries into the wrestling biography genre.
It's a familiar tale, well told by Bret and co-writer Perry Lefko and thankfully manages to avoid taking itself too seriously when it comes to the wrestling anecdotes. To complain that WCW and WWF matches are more about entertainment than any sporting prowess or competitive edge is to miss the point and Hitman's story delivers all the punches, body slams and bone-crunching action shots the fans could want.
If you have never heard of Hitman, you won't be the slightest bit interested in his story, but fans of the man will love this enjoyable romp through the life of one of wrestling's most popular characters.--Jon Weir
