For Your Consideration: Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson

Authors: Dean, Tres

Publisher: Quirk Books

ISBN: 9781683691501

Classification: Non-Fiction

Synopsis: This illustrated collection of humorous essays and fun extras makes the case for one of our most iconic celebrities, from the wrestling mat to the silver screen.

There are three certainties in life: death, taxes, and the awesomeness of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Sporting a proverbial Rotten Tomatoes score of 100 percent, Certified Fresh, The Rock embodies everything we want from our Hollywood superstars...and everything we admire in those who so boldly pursue the American dream. But how did it all happen? How did a loathed professional wrestler become the most famous person in the world? Was it just good timing? Years of trial and error? Countless hours in the gym? A winning smile? Or his total mastery of Instagram Stories?

Composed of five critical essays and fun extras, For Your Consideration: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson looks at the distinct phases of the legend’s career, examining the ways in which he has become both an on-screen heartthrob and an off-screen hero to the millions (AND MILLIONS!) who’ve followed him from the wrestling mat to the silver screen.
