If you were a hockey fan during Bob Probert's career on the ice you will find this book an interesting read. It is one of the better written sports autobiographies, making it an easy read; a credit to Kirstie MacLellan Day. Where other hockey story books give you disjointed stories in time, Probert's book provides a coherent continuous timeline. Be prepared for graphic description of a rough and tumble life outside of the arena. His book sure gives you insight into other players, team management and some politic of the league.

Tragic to read about a lad who had so much going for him but drugs & alcohol fueled such anger within that it came out the way it did. Appeared to be well-liked in the dressing room though - you can't help but feel for his wife & kids. His lifestyle no doubt led to his early demise.

This was a moving book. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Everybody should read this book, whether you remember who Bob Probert was or not. This book told the story how it was. It was absolutely fantastic. I can't even describe it. This was probably the best hockey auto-bio I have ever read

Thanks to this book, Christmas just became easier. I had no idea what to get my dad, my nephew and my two brothers-in-law and now I do. I can take care of the whole family for under a hundred bucks!! They all want this book for Christmas. I have not heard one bad thing about it. I have several friends who feel the same. I just hope they have lots in stock.
