About the book: This illustrated collection of humorous essays and fun extras celebrates the high and low of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, including his ascent from the heel of the WWF/WWE to his total domination of Hollywood--and our hearts--as a real-deal nice guy.

There are three absolute certainties in life: death, taxes, and the awesomeness of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Sporting a proverbial Rotten Tomatoes score of 100%, 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 widely loathed professional wrestler become the most famous person in the world? Is it just good timing? Years and years of trial and error? Countless hours in the gym and a winning smile? Or his total mastery of Instagram Stories?

For Your Consideration: Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson looks at the three distinct phases of the legendary man's career, examines the ways in which he has become an off-screen hero to so many, ranks his movies from Awesome to More Awesome, offers a theoretical roadmap to EGOT, translates the zodiac into movies starring The Rock, breaks down his seven-meals-a-day diet, and much, much more.

About the author: Tres Dean is a culture and comics writer. He has written extensively about Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson online and has been published by GQ, Paste, Syfy, Geek.com, UPROXX, IGN, Looper, and more. For Your Consideration: Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is is his first book.
