See the world through the eyes of champion wrestler Mick Foley as he looks back on his days in the WWE. As one of the most bizarre and fearless stars of wrestling in recent times, Mick is known for taking extraordinary risks to remain at the peak of his game. COUNTDOWN TO LOCKDOWN is a no-holds-barred, behind the scenes account of his mental and physical preparation for the TNA Lockdown - in many ways, the most important wrestling match of his career. This is put in context with Foley's memories, thoughts and opinions of WWE as well as life outside the ring from the Benoit deaths and the 'Royal Rumble', to Sierra Leone and his meeting with former President Bill Clinton. Full of action from inside the ring, the drama of his last days with the WWE, Foley's trademark humour as well as an industry insider's view of professional wrestling today, Foley's many fans will not be disappointed.

Review:

"Mick Foley is a natural born storyteller whose sense of humor and sensibilities regarding life are a joy to experience. This hilarious, often poignant, vividly written true story is an amazingly honest journey that any fan of pop culture, sports, family values, battling Father Time, helping others, and, obviously, pro wrestling past or present, will love. I read Mick's latest literary effort twice in three days and am anxious to start the process all over again." (--Jim "JR" Ross, Hall of Fame wrestling announcer)

"Mick Foley is like the two sides of a coin. Both a hardcore wrestling legend and a smart, caring author-Mick's intelligence makes him lethal in the ring and his wrestling intensity makes him a deadly writer. Countdown to Lockdown applies a "Mandible Claw" to every page!" (--Dee Snider, Twisted Sister frontman)

"Like a trusted bard of old, Mick Foley is a masterful storyteller whose tales are guaranteed to engage and entertain." (--Chris Jericho, New York Times bestselling author)
