In Foley Is Good, Mick Foley -- former Commissioner of the World Wrestling Federation, aka Cactus Jack, Dude Love, and Mankind -- picks up right where his smash #1 New York Times bestseller Have a Nice Day! left off, giving readers an inside look at the behind-the-scenes action in the Federation. With total honesty and riotous humor, Mick Foley shines a spotlight into some of the hidden corners of the World Wrestling Federation. From the ongoing controversy surrounding "backyard wrestling" to the real story behind his now-infamous "I Quit" match with The Rock, Foley covers all the bases in this hysterically funny roller-coaster ride of a memoir.

So with great anticipation, I slid in the General Hospital tape. "Can they really do that at three in the afternoon?" I said to my wife, after witnessing an act that put our World Wrestling Federation adventures to shame. Call me old-fashioned, but I was a little shocked to see just how seedy these soap operas were.

accusations of the PTC study hard to fathom. Unlike the IU study, which had been done at a time when the World Wrestling Federation content was at its most risque, the 2000 version of the World Wrestling Federation was somewhat toned down, especially SmackDown! It was common knowledge among wrestlers that the rougher language and more offensive gestures should be kept from broadcast television. Personally, I found the 2000 product to be fast-paced, exciting, and with the rise of Kurt Angle, the

The Phoenix—Knoebel’s Grove. A classic out-and-back coaster, with the most airtime I've ever experienced. 4. Volcano—King's Dominion. The zero-to-sixty m.p.h. in two seconds sends the rider blasting through a volcano and then into multiple inversions. 5. Twister—Knoebel’s Grove. An amazing thrill ride built by the park, using lumber from their own lumberyard. 6. Kraken—Sea World. An incredibly smooth steel monster that was marred only by Noelle's "I want to go! I want to go!" temper tantrum.

Pilot fine-point precise rollerball pens to keep me company. Seven weeks and 129,000 words later, I had a book (or, more accurately, about 600 pages of barely legible notebook paper) in my hands. While the typing process was underway I began working on an additional section, which is my thoroughly researched answer to an often reckless media's criticism of the world of sports entertainment. These 30,000 words took me an additional seven months to complete and I sincerely hope that it will shed
