The #1 New York Times bestselling autobiography of World Wrestling Entertainment's Hall of Famer Mick Foley, Have a Nice Day! gives an inside look into the reckless and vengeful life of one of the WWE's most complex and feared superstars.

In the rich history of the World Wrestling Entertainment, no superstar has been more deranged or maniacal than Mankind. A skilled grappler who can beat opponents with sheer brutality, this Boiler Room Dweller is one of three personalities (along with Dude Love and Cactus Jack) of the unstable Mick Foley.

From the very beginning, Mankind loved pain. From his outcast days growing up in Bloomingdale, ID, where he was smacked in the lip while playing a game, he vowed vengeance on his enemies and became one of the hottest rising stars in the then WWF.

With his debut in the WWF as Mankind, rumbling with the likes of Undertaker and tag-teaming with Stone Cold as Dude Love, Mick Foley is a 4-time Tag-Team Championship and a WWF Hardcore Champion.

Back cover copy

Mick Foley is a nice man, a family man who loves amusement parks and eating ice cream in bed. So how to explain those Japanese death matches in rings with explosives, golden thumbtacks and barbed wire instead of rope? The second-degree burn tissue? And the missing ear that was ripped off during a bout-in which he kept fighting? Here is an intimate glimpse into Mick Foley's mind, his history, his work and what some might call his pathology. Now with a bonus chapter summarizing the past 15 months-from his experience as a bestselling author through his parting thoughts before his final match. A tale of blood, sweat, tears and more blood-all in his own words-straight from the twisted genius behind Cactus Jack, Dude Love, and Mankind.
