Summary

From beloved number one New York Times best-selling author and WWE Hall-of-Famer Mick Foley comes a Yuletide tale like no other.
After a lifetime of putting his body on the line to entertain his dozens (and dozens!) of fans, the Hardcore Legend is paying the price - physically and emotionally. When the final bell on Mick's career tolls, not in the ring, but in a neurologist's office, his future seems far from merry and bright. Until Mick is given the chance to become Santa Claus - not dress up, not pretend, but become Santa - allowing him to rediscover the joy of performing.
Fully committing to his new mission, Mick details the drastic measures he takes to keep the Christmas magic alive for his young children, as well as the many children he meets in his travels who are in need of some Christmas Spirit. In order to fully embrace his new red-suited responsibilities, Mick enters the fascinating world of the Santa subculture, where he hones his Christmas craft while worrying he'll be excommunicated from the Santa world for, among other things, his Santa character being run over by a motor vehicle on Christmas Eve on WWE television.
But with the help of an unlikely elf - eight-time Grammy Award winner Norah Jones - Mick learns valuable lessons about the real power and responsibility of wearing the red suit.

Critic reviews

"Based on personal experience, I assure you that if Santa Claus and Mick Foley are not one and the same, they're at least closely related. Don't believe me? Then read Saint Mick, a beautifully written book by a man with a holiday-filled heart." (Jeff Guinn, New York Times best-selling author of The Autobiography of Santa Claus)

Perfect

From the modern godfather of wrestling biographies comes a book just as insightful, illuminating, entertaining and well crafted as a 'have a nice day: tale of blood and sweat-socks'. The adage "the mask does not conceal the person, it reveals them" provides one of the points of fascination here, the transformation into a character, coming out of whatever you are and becoming something else, be it a violent masochistic outcast seeking acceptance through pain in an exploding Japanese death match, a stand up comedian, or a kind hearted Santa Clause tossing magic dust, are strikingly similar, they are also a road map to living a life more full than many of us have the courage to try. This is an engaging and heartfelt work by a master storyteller, a book that makes the world bigger, better, and brings into focus the things that are most important.
