The infamous "Dr. D" David Schultz's autobiography "Don't Call Me Fake: The Real Story of 'Dr. D' David Schultz" with co-author John Cosper has been officially released and is now sale via Amazon at this link.

The book covers 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 coverx 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 is covered as are his run after WWF and his time training professional wrestlers.  There are stories about Hulk Hogan, Antonio Inoki, Johnny Rodz, The Iron Sheik, Ric Flair, and Abdullah the Butcher, among others.

I read the book a few weeks ago and thought it was a great read. 

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

WWE Hall of Famer Bret Hart has written the foreword for the book.
