Product Details


“It’s a wonderful story of one man’s rollercoaster ride as the father of the world’s most famous hockey player and as the victim of a debilitating stroke. It’s a tale of incredible joy and crushing despair. . . . Although Gretzky senior now feels as if he’s lost ten years of his life, he survived the odds to make a near-complete recovery. What has he learned? ‘Every second of every day is precious to me.’” — The Ottawa Citizen

“The hockey story we are familiar with. The healing, however, is the tale of a championship too rarely won.” — The Ottawa Citizen

“The first half of the book will interest even a casual hockey fan. With his privileged access to NHL locker rooms . . . Gretzky provides a rare insight into the day-to-day rigours of the sport. . . . This is not, however, just a hockey book. Of considerably more interest for the non-fan is the second half of the book, detailing Gretzky’s life after his stroke.” — Quill & Quire
