Mick Foley's first book changed the wrestling literature game. Before its release in 1999, wrestling books were mostly lame tales penned by ghostwriters, but Foley showed the world that stories about WCW, ECW, WWF, and life on the road could be well-written and entertaining while also selling like hotcakes.
