Angle does get into his character(kayfabe) quite a bit, and it detracts from the credibility of the book. This is ok if you're someone who isn't into the inner workings of Wrestling, but still for me, that was an issue.
Overall, It was a good book. I picked it up cause I was interested in wrestling, and it turned out that it was a pretty good read. You'll read about Angle's personal life, and how he became dedicated to wrestling. You'll also read about how he met his wife Karen, and how he rose so fast through the WWE after winning his Olympic Gold Medal.
But the best thing that I got from this book was the experience of some one who has never been in a wrestling ring before going through the pains and toils of learning to wrestle. Angle describes how he learns the moves, but also how his fellow superstars mentor him, and help him learn the psychology of a match. This is a perspective that not many other books will give.
All in all, I think it's definately worth picking up. Angle's life has been interesting, and his story really is quite entertaining, albeit it a bit conceited at times. It's definately worth your time to go check out, but I wouldn't buy it. It's true.
