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!

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.

Not worth it

The book was a quick summary of accomplishments. Not a real biography! It was a complete waste of time!

(Rock)et Fuel!!

Thank you for your lessons in this book. I am sitting on a train travelling back home to Toronto for the summer. I love adventures and am getting ready for new learning (listening ) opportunity at the tippy top of the North West Territories. I got plenty of fuel and now I am ready to blast off for my next adventures.

Thanks again!

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.

Inspired

Overall I enjoyed the book. I was hoping for more content about life lessons and motivation, rather than so much content about what movies he’s done. I think everyone already knows how successful the Rock is. I’d really like to learn more about the specifics and details of those life lessons. I loved the story about where he came from, the setbacks, and overcoming those setbacks.

Good summary of Dwayne Johnson!

It was a really great summary of Dwayne Johnson’s life. Really great work but I just wish there was more information on life lessons. I felt a lot of it was like reading Wikipedia. It would be great to make these 1.5 hours long and talk more about their life struggles and the everyday things they did to work come it. I guess I am looking for more depth and this was more high level.
I love to understand the everyday routine of a successful person :)
I still love the work though!

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.
