Book Description

Oct. 23 2012

Whether he was potting a shot top shelf or crushing an opponent into the boards, Jeremy Roenick, or J.R., as he is widely known, was never shy about the way he played hockey. Roenick played for twenty years with five NHL teams. As much as he mixed it up in front of the net, he often found himself in the middle of controversy off the ice as well, and more than ever now as a hockey broadcaster and media personality, Roenick lights up call-in show phone lines with his rare mix of raw wit and cutting commentary.

In J.R., Roenick reveals all, from his youth hockey days commuting across the continent, to his time with the Chicago Blackhawks, Philadelphia Flyers and his other teams, to skating with the American team in international competition. From his famous media battle with Patrick Roy, his entreaty to fans to “kiss my ass,” his accusation that USA Hockey had “blackballed” him, and his claims of a bias against American players, to his thoughts on Wayne Gretzky and the Phoenix Coyotes, Roenick tells it as only he can.

3.0 out of 5 stars Finished the book not liking him... May 10 2014
By Sourire
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Most outspoken? I guess see after finishing this book. When you write your autobiography, you have the choice to write yourself how you want to be perceived by the public and leave stories hurting you. He didn't. But, I think he couldn't have because he seriously doesn't see his behavior as being bad... I mean not everything is good to be said outright. He doesn't seem to care about hurting others. I found him very egocentric and arrogant. He is just hey that is my personality and I won't change it. I did read the book in a week and somewhat enjoyed it, but not the guy...

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining...just like Jeremy Roenick himself. Nov. 12 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had no preconceived notions as to how good, or bad, this book might be. I was, therefore, pleasantly surprised as to how much I enjoyed this book by Jeremy Roenick. Granted it is not "heavy" reading but that is not the reason you should read it in the first place. It's an honest, insightful, funny look into the life of a professional hockey player. Took me one day to read it...not because it's a short book but because Jeremy Roenick is just that interesting. It's worth a read.

JR is a great story teller. And his book is a fun and informative read. I just wish he would have shared more gossipy details of some of the stories. As a reader, you know he has left some things out. But a very, very good read nontheless.

4.0 out of 5 stars For the Hockey Nut Jan. 17 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I thought the book was alright, although I expected a more tell all book based on JR's reputation of pulling no punches.
