Summary

If you’re looking to be inspired by someone who has truly made the most of life’s opportunities, then listen to this remarkable story of one of today’s most well-known celebrities. 

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is best known as a former professional wrestler who later came to dominate Hollywood with a series of blockbuster movies. His powerful on-screen presence and strong physique give the impression that he effortlessly reached global success, yet Dwayne faced a series of challenges and setbacks as he rose to the top. 

From being homeless as a child and later having little more than $7 in his pocket to facing the reality that his dream career in football was over, Dwayne’s life hasn’t always been a linear track of successes. However, rather than let this bring him down, he never gave up and pushed himself to be the best he could in everything he applied himself to. 

If you want to discover the story behind Dwayne’s extraordinary success, this book takes you on a journey from his childhood to how he became one of Hollywood’s most well-known action figures. Strip away the glitz and the glamor, and you find a remarkable story of persistence, commitment, and deeply ingrained work ethics that kept Dwayne moving forward to where he is today. If you want proof that success is rarely served on a silver platter and the majority of successful people have to sweat blood and tears to reach their goals, then Dwayne’s life story will give you exactly that. 

In this book, you will find:

  • The story of Dwayne’s childhood and how it shaped the strong core values he lives by today
  • Why his football dreams came to an end and how he became one of WWE’s greatest wrestlers
  • How he moved into Hollywood and became a successful A-list actor - even without any acting background, experience, or qualifications
  • The main lessons he learned throughout his life
  • Dwayne’s 10 rules of success and how you can apply them, too

Are you ready to take a journey through life in the shoes of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson? Then buy now, and let's get started!

I feel like I just read a Wikipedia page

While the information is interesting, there's nothing here that can't be easily found on the internet. I was hoping for some insightful information from The Rock. there needs to be way more detail about the events of his life. A one hour read should have been a red flag.

A well told story of facts.

Narrator did a good job but it was too many facts without enough motivational content.

Well written engaging mini bio

I’m a fan of Dwayne Johnson the person. The wrestler, film star etc are just outgrowths of his basic good persona. I sincerely hope he runs for president!!

Worth a read

Definitely a great outline for success. It’s a short read/listen but it gets straight to the point and sums things up with 10 tips for success from a man worth idolizing.

Glad it was a short book.

It wasn’t horrible but it also wasn’t anything I couldn’t just google or read on Wikipedia. A good chunk of the book was a long running list of all his movies and short summary of the plots. That part Just felt like filler.
