One thought on “Hacksaw: The Jim Duggan Story

  1. Dan Schwent

    Hacksaw is the biography of pro wrestler Hacksaw Jim Duggan.This is the sixteenth book in my Kindle Unlimited Experiment For the 30 day trial, I m only reading books that are part of the program and keeping track what the total cost of the books would have been.I first became a wrestling fan when I was around 7 years old, about the same time Moses led the Hebrews out of Egypt, right around the time Hulkamania exploded on America and changed the wrestling business forever As I got older, I became [...]

  2. Amy

    A fun read, told with a lot of heart I learned so much about what goes on behind the scenes I have a whole new level of respect for Hacksaw HO OH

  3. Larry

    I felt the writing was a bit sloppy I guess I should have been prepared seeing as it was written by a Professional Wrestler There were times where Duggan would start a story, go off on a tangent, and then never return to the original story.I also felt that there were a lot of juicy details that Duggan left out He talks about drugs a tiny bit in the book, but doesn t go into too much detail about them It is as if he was told to not go into too much detail about the bad parts of the business.I did [...]

    Hacksaw Jim Duggan is a likeable character and person I was not his biggest fan, but he was from the era I watched wrestling This is an honest account of Jim Duggan s life and time in wrestling He started out as football player, who joined amateur wrestling, then his first love Pro Football, but injuries forced him out, and he took up the role of a pro wrestler He used a number of gimmicks before he became Hacksaw Which was very close to his own personality they say the best gimmicks are extensi [...]

  5. Oliver Bateman

    Want a by the numbers recounting of Jim Duggan s solid career as a pro wrestler Here you go WWE viewers might not realize what a good athlete or what a badass Duggan once was, so this book is useful for rehashing his SMU football days and Mid South Wrestling glory years Duggan freely admits to reducing the number of bumps he took after coming to the WWE, claiming that once he realized he could get over with a thumb and a 2X4, his desire to engage in bloody brawls decreased dramatically a few lat [...]

  6. Bill Jacobs

    great book with full of great memories, including funny and tragic moments in his life So easy to read If you want to read the underrated pro wrestler s perspective views on the life of pro wrestling, it s the best book Also, it s the best one on a wrestler who never win the main event championships and still lead you on his exciting and fun roads.

  7. Lorraine Mason

    Very entertaining look at the life of Hacksaw Jim Duggan, and of wrestling in the 1980 s and 90 s The writing could be better, and the stories could be told fluidly However, the backstage stories are hilarious and amazing I found myself laughing and crying many times throughout this book If you re a wrestling fan, I would definitely recommend it.

  8. Josh McDevitt-Spall

    A fun read, if not always well written I was hoping for a Foleyesque read, a book so wonderfully engaging that you marvelled that the goofy wrestler could ve written it Unfortunately, Hacksaw just keeps reminding you that it s written by a goofy wrestler Offers interesting takes on some of my childhood heroes, and I have a hard time not loving Hacksaw just for trying to write a book.

  9. Ken Taylor

    I have a lot of respect for Jim Duggan, and from what I read he seems to have been one of the level headed wrestlers of his time, but that just made for a uninteresting book It is peppered with some interesting stories, and what seems to be an over the top defense of Vince McMahon All in all it was a pretty average autobiography.

  10. Peter Stevens

    Brilliant story from a guy that has Stood the test of time Through hardships and in difference To family life and loss Cancer and Politics this book is a journey through the life and times of one of wrestlings most iconic faces and personalities Well worth the read so pick it up today TOUGH GUY Hooooooohhhh

  11. Gary F

    A fun and easy going book but not one that is raw and full of emotion and detailed stories like Bob Holly s book This is strictly G rated and summary of events that really digging into key events Still worth a read if you are a fan.

  12. Stacey

    Haven t you always suspected that Jim Duggan was just a good guy He is This was an honest, no excuses, look bak on his personal life and professional career I appreciated his wit his description of his stint as WCW janitor had me laughing out loud and his candor was refreshing.

  13. Stephen Bruno
