The definitive autobiography
from hockey’s greatest living legend—“Mr. Hockey” himself, Gordie Howe.
Big, skilled, tough on the
ice, and nearly indestructible, Howe dominated both the sport and the record
books like no one has before or since. Over an incredible six decades, the Hall
of Famer had so many accomplishments that he set the record for the most
records by any athlete ever in any sport. He also achieved the remarkable feat
of playing for six years with his own two sons, Mark and Marty.
But Howe did not inspire
generations of hockey players simply by rewriting the record books. When people
talk about him, it’s the man they revere even more than the player. Despite his
ferocity on the ice, Howe’s name has long been a byword for decency and
generosity. A family man, a man of his word, a lifelong ambassador for the
game, he is a true icon, and now he takes us through it all, from his
Depression-era childhood and early obstacles through the ups and downs of his
spectacular career, to his enduring marriage and close relationship with his
children, to his thoughts on the game of hockey today.
There has never been a
comprehensive account of Howe’s life from the man himself. Now is the time. Download and start listening now!
