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.

Comments about Mankind, Have a Nice Day!:
This book is perfect for anyone who is a mad wrestling fan, all the way to someone how knows little, or nothing, about professional wrestling.
Mick Foley is an intelligent writer, and has a great sense of humour to back it up. I have had the privilege of reading all four of his autobiographies, and this is by far the best. Definitely worth the time, even though it is a long book.
