Hulk Hogan reveals the private person behind the public persona in My Life Outside the Ring from St. Martinís Press and M&Cís giving away three copies of the book.

From humble beginnings to becoming one of the most recognizable celebrities on the planet, Hulk Hogan (born Terry Bollea) uses the book to discuss his childhood, his thirty-year career, and more recently, his personal heartbreak.

Hoganís path to success was made through sheer will, grit, determination, and a drive to always go over the top and do more than what others thought possible.

From the outside, his story was one of a charmed lifeóhe was at the top of his career, had a wonderful and loving family, and a lifelong fan base who worshipped him. Of course he had his up and downsóbut itís been the last two years that have tested Hogan more than any other in his lifetime.

In 2008, while riding the massive success of his VH1 reality show, Hogan Knows Best, his son Nick was involved in a tragic car accident that left his best friend in critical condition. Then Linda, his wife, left him after 23 years of marriage, his beloved daughter Brooke blamed him for the breakup and his son went to jail. The tabloid media had a field day. When unflattering jailhouse conversations between him and his son were released to the press the tabloids were in frenzy. The sudden turmoil and tragedy surrounding Hulk took its toll. He fell into a deep depression, seeing no way out, until one fateful phone call.

Teaming up with People Magazine Senior Writer Mark Dagostino for My Life Outside the Ring, Hogan will unabashedly recount these events, revealing how his newfound clarity steadied him during the most difficult match of his lifeóand how he emerged from the battle feeling stronger than ever before.
