This is the story of Gordie Howe's Hockey career lasting five decades; but it is more than that. The story begins even before Howe started playing. It talks of his tough life in Saskatchewan and how this toughness proved useful in later years.
If the book seems to be somewhat like bragging just stop and think who is writing it. Gordie Howe owned the record books till Wayne Gretzky came along.
If you are a hockey fan you'll love this book. If you're not a hockey fan you just might become one on reading it! Regardless, a wonderful read.

quick read. the author doesn't bog down in giving histories of his uncles and aunts, great grandparents. he gives enough history of his immediate family to make sense of his life. lots of hockey stories from a golden age of the sport

I was pleasantly surprised by how Mr. Hockey comes across in this memoir. He tells his story, growing up, playing hockey, his family life, and life after hockey, in a genuine, down to earth style. The reader feels like Gordie is actually sitting opposite and sharing his story first hand. If you're a fan of Howe, or hockey history, you'll enjoy it immensely.
