The infamous "Dr. D" David Schultz will be releasing an autobiography "Don't Call Me Fake: The Real Story of 'Dr. D' David Schultz" with co-author John Cosper in early 2018.  The current plan is to release the book sometime in January as the majority of the work has been completed.

The book will cover Schultz's life as a professional wrestler as well as his post-wrestling career as a bounty hunter who traveled the world bringing back criminals who had absconded from their court dates.   Over the course of his bounty hunting career, Schultz had a 100% capture rate and those he brought back never skipped again.  

On the wrestling end, the book will cover Schultz's early life, his training with Herb Welch, his years in Memphis, Florida, Stampede, the AWA, and the WWF. Obviously, the John Stossel ABC 20/20 incident and Schultz's dismissal from WWF will be covered as will be his run after WWF and his time training professional wrestlers.  There will be stories about Hulk Hogan, Antonio Inoki, Johnny Rodz, The Iron Sheik, Ric Flair, and Abdullah the Butcher, among others.

The book will feature over 100 photos from Schultz's personal collection including photos that would have exposed kayfabe back in the 80s.

The book will be over 460 pages in total.
