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.

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

Format: Hardcover
This book was depressing. Theo Fleury appeared to battle his addiction demons. He also had some reasons for his struggles, particularly sexual victimization by his coach. We never find out the reasons behind Proberts serious drug and alcohol addictions. We hear about his huge boat, huge cars and huge house but little about why he continues to return to substance abuse. Why would a guy with a beautiful wife, great kids and an awesome job prefer the dark side of life? I don't know. It is never answered. Of course he died while writing the book (the prologue is written by his wife and details his tragic death) which may be the reason. While Fleury appeared to struggle to overcome his addictions, Probert revels in them for the most part. The book does not flow as well as Fleury's either as he jumps between recovery and relapse and you never know quite where he is. He makes one brief commitment to religion and nothing further is said about it. It all comes across as a wasted life. Judging by this book and Fleury's; drugs must have been rampant in the NHL during this time period. I hope it is not the case anymore. This book is not appropriate for young hockey fans due to drug use, coarse language and graphic information about Probert's various struggles.
