Ryan Walter--first round draft pick, NHL player, Stanley Cup champion, motivational speaker, television analyst, NHL coach, man of faith. Ryan takes the lessons learned from a life in hockey and shows you how to apply them for success in life. Family life, business life, journey of life, these tips will guide you along the way. Corporations spend millions of dollars to train people in team building exercises that hockey teaches as part of the experience. This book is straightforward and honest, easy to read and will make you think. Ryan doesn't preach, he simply lays it out for you. There are many valuable life lessons in this title, I highly recommend it.

HASH(0x945ab4a4) out of 5 stars Motivational pointers from someone who you KNOW has been there Sept. 7 2013
By Andrew Kuligowski - Published on
Format: Paperback
I've read a few self-help / motivational books over the years. One thing that separates Ryan Walter's "Off the Bench and Into the Game" from the others is that I KNOW Mr. Walter is speaking from experience. I've SEEN him play in person; I've SEEN him play on television, and I've SEEN the box scores and stories in The Hockey News. This book takes lessons he's learned from his career, his teammates, his coaches, and his life, and shows how they demonstrate a tool towards success - or how they fail that goal.

Walter inserts quotes from various individuals, famous and not, to further illustrate his points. This helps break up the text, and shows that he did not invent the concepts that he is speaking of.

It's a pretty short read; I'm glad I made the time to do it.

Rating: 4 ½ stars ... after mulling it over, I've decided to round up to 5 stars when a ½ star isn't permitted.
