About the Author:

In 2010, Shawn Michaels retired from the WWE after a successful run of over twenty years in the ring. A native of San Antonio, TX, Shawn officially became a part of the WWF (now the WWE) in 1988. An eleven-time winner of Pro Wrestling Illustrated and WWE's Match of the Year Award, Michaels has been blessed enough to be the WWE World Champion, World Heavyweight Champion, Royal Rumble winner (twice), Intercontinental Champion, World Tag Team Champion along with many other noteworthy accolades.  He also has compiled list of memorable nicknames that fans across the world associate with his career in the WWE, including: The Heartbreak Kid, The Showstopper, The Headliner, The Main Event, The Icon and Mr. Wrestlemania.

In addition to his wrestling career, Shawn continues his work in the area of Christian ministry working with various churches, charities and organizations which allow him the opportunity to the spread and advance of the gospel. Since his retirement from the WWE, Shawn has turned his focus toward spending more time with his wife and kids, while hostingShawn Michaels MacMillan River Adventurestelevision show on the Outdoor Channel. Shawn currently lives on his ranch in west Texas with his wife Rebecca and their two children, Cameron and Cheyenne.




Arguably one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all-time, Michaels offers readers an intimate look at his transformation from a self-destructive, drug-addled superstar to a devoted father, husband, and born again Christian. Michaels wrote about his career up to 2002 in his first book, Heartbreak and amp; Triumph (2005), and here he focuses on how he incorporated his faith into the dazzling and strange world of pro wrestling, including his role as a mentor to young wrestlers and his relationship with WWE CEO Vince McMahon. Each chapter leads with a short Bible passage, and as his story moves from wrestling to his retirement in 2010, he provides faith-based advice on subjects such as tithing, self-awareness, and selfdiscipline. Still, the book is not overly preachy and is told with self-deprecating humor and candor. Michaels, who currently hosts a hunting show on the Outdoor Channel called MacMillan River Adventure, has appeal across multiple demographic categories, and this slim volume has something for all of them.
