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!

This is not a book, it's an article

Was quite disappointed by this "book". I'd call it an article to tell people how great Dwayne 'the Rock' Johnson is.
Don't get me wrong, I think the guys great, hence buying the book. But this book isn't what you need to read to realise that

Painful narrating

The narrator is terrible, extremely robotic and speaks at 100mph none stop.
I've tried by coming back to this audio book several times, but it's impossible to put up with.

I'd give it no stars if possible.

Dwayne is not in it.

It might as well be fan mail. It absolutely sucks. I want my money back. maybe tell me how to change this for another book. I haven't figured out how to do that yet

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.

Great info on The Rock’s life

I love the story and I truly identify a lot with his young life. Now if I can just manage to get the my adult life to have some similarities I will be on to something. The only thing I did not like is I wish he would have narrated his own story. I feel like authors who do that have more success with their books because listeners can feel the soul of the words coming through their voice.

Great life history of The Rock

The story of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was great. I learned a lot about him. I was bummed to not hear his voice, but I’m not sure if that was stated in the description. I love The Rock enough to not worry about that though.

Great inspiration for those in need.

Dwayne has always been an inspiration for many! This is a great read for those who think "born into success" is the only way to make a difference.

Disappointing. Doubt Dwayne Johnson has anything to do with this book

This was just a narrative account of his life. No strategic analysis of how THe Rock overcame obstacles or achieved success. The chapter on his personal life just quotes public record. I’d give this one a miss.
