Publisher's 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 would like to hear more about what it takes and how to. what do you need to become to achieve what Dwane hase achieved. I would definitely buy that.

Inspiring Story

Thank you so much for sharing your inspiring story. I made the decision to do what ever it takes after seeing my business come to complete stop and loosing my families livelihood. I’ve put the business on the back burner and have take a completely unrelated job to ensure my family has what they need. This was not ideal and very hard to leave my wife and small child behind. The reason I shared this with you is because listening to your audio book has given me even more focus and drive to continue forward and never give up.

Thanks again

Michael

Good listen

I think the pacing could be better. Seemed a bit all over the place. Would've liked more details on topics you can't just learn about through the news i.e feud between Rock and Diesel. I like the narration though.

No advice

Almost the entire book just talks about how great the rock is. It does nothing to provide advice or wisdom .

Enjoyed Dwayne's Story

Book is short and enjoyable. Great to hear Dwayne's story, his dedication to his commitments and how rejection moved him forward in life.

Overall great title, y’all are too picky.

I found this title to be informational and inspirational. Sure it’s no get quick success scheme because there is no such thing. Great insight to the struggles it takes to remain and achieve success. God bless you Dwayne. Keep fighting the good fight.

Reads like a 7th grade book report

In a flailing attempt to sound influential, this narrow scope review of Dwayne Johnson's life, just folates him gratuitously by providing a timeline of his career with limited retrospect into his actual life as opposed to just reading his Wikipedia page; to which I implore you to do and save yourself the couple dollars even if on sale.

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.

Wonderful

Totally motivating and a kick in the face for these desperate times we live in on how to persevere and have a “bring it “ attitude towards life . Narrator also portrays this well when reading DJ story.

I love everything about this book. I've looked up to Dewayne Johnson for a long time. His outlook on life has gave me the courage to keep fighting this cancer that I have.

Inspiring!

I have been a huge fan of The Rock even since he reached the WWE. I have followed his story as well as had the privilege to work on a few sets he has been a part of. His story is very deep and in some ways a lot like mine. I molded my life in a positive way over the years from his drive, mindset, career and many other influences. to this day, I knew the minute he touched the canvas in the WWE in Madison Square Garden, he had the IT factor. to this day he has done nothing but prove me right and inspire so many, my daughter included. I wanted to thank the rock for setting a standard very few men have been able to do & though we are not personal friends, I hope one day, we can be on the silver screen or cross paths. Stay blessed Rocky! to the gentleman who narrated this book, you did an amazing job. Thank you for an enjoyable read. Keep striving to be the best you can be.

Always room for improvement

This book was suggested to me by a very close friend of mine who his nickname is little Rock because he is as enthusiastic for the gym as you are, just a little smaller in size. Thank you for sharing your story and truth, you were heard. This gives me the motivation to be the best me possible. I gave four stars because no one is perfect.

Motivation

I met Mr. Johnson at a Golds gym in SoCal many years ago when I was a professional bodybuilder, and I can say that he’s not only as nice in person but the motivation is electric, is bleeds out of him! Great story and thank you. John Bezerra

Waste of money

A book of facts easily found online. Not what I expected. Bought in hurry. Will not do that again.
