Foley Is Good: And the Real World Is Faker than Wrestling is the second autobiography (2001) of The New York Times best-selling author, former WWE wrestler and current TNA wrestler, Mick Foley. It details his career from January 1999 until his retirement in April 2000 at WrestleMania 2000. Foley originally professed to prefer this book to the original, Have a Nice Day: A Tale of Blood and Sweatsocks but has since confessed that perhaps the original is the better book.
Like in his first book, Foley wrote this one without the aid of a ghostwriter.
In the book, he writes about his experience writing his first book without the aid of a ghostwriter. He also defends himself against being misquoted by news program 20/20. He also explains the events surrounding his "I Quit" match with The Rock at the Royal Rumble in January 1999, which can also be seen in the documentary Beyond the Mat.
The book also heavily defends the actions of the World Wrestling Federation, at a controversial period in its history when it was coming under fire due to the violent content of their shows. Foley made an effort to pointedly refute claims made by detractors, citing statistical data and other evidence he compiled himself. He criticizes the actions of the Parents Television Council.
After three pressruns, the book had approximately 230,000 copies in print. In May 2001, the book was the number one nonfiction book on the New York Times bestseller list.
