Unmasked documents the unlikely true story of a boy who was taunted and beaten relentlessly by bullies throughout his childhood. Kane only escaped his tormentors when he moved to a tiny island in the South Pacific where he lived for all of his teen years. After living shirtless in a jungle for a while, he headed back to America where he fell in love with doing stunts - only to have his love burn him, literally. For the first time ever, Kane tells the true story of the horrific burn injury that nearly killed him at the start of his career. The entire heart-wrenching, inspirational story of his recovery, the emotional and physical damage it caused, his fight to break back into the industry that almost killed him, and his triumphant rise to become a film legend are told in Kane's own powerful voice. Take a peek inside the head of the man behind the mask. Be inspired by his triumphant comeback, and laugh at his on-set hijinks as you unmask the world's most prolific cinematic killer.

Fascinating look at the life (so far!) of Kane
It was a nice balance of family history, stories, details and anecdotes that never dragged.
The horrific yet fascinating detail of Kane's accident was grueling to listen to, I can't even imagine what it was like to go through for real! Yet it never felt as if it were shocking for shock's sake. It was very well put across.
It's always great to hear an author read his own story, and despite some fleeting moments where it felt like he was reading (which of course, he was), most of the time it felt like Kane was just talking to you. I like that.
Having Adam Green read his own introduction was a nice touch. All in all it was a great look at Kane's life and profession, I'd listen to him again for sure.
