Review

Shift Work is more than just a sports book. Tie tells about his personal and professional life, from being a young boy to the present. The book is a winner, just like Tie.” (Don Cherry)

"Fiercely loyal and smart, Tie understood what he needed to do and when he needed to do it.” (Mark Messier)

"I learned something about Tie when we were both young and playing for the Rangers and it is still true to this day: there’s no challenge he isn’t willing to take on. I’m talking about life, business, you name it. He takes on all of his challenges head on.” (Adam Graves)

“With Tie, what you see is what you get. And there is a world shortage of that, in every respect. Tie is the baseline for ‘real,’ and he is ‘old school.’” (Mitch Goldhar)

"Tie Domi was always driven at what he did. People that are driven at certain things – and I only saw the hockey side – you know it is going to translate off the ice. It just has to; it is part of their DNA and part of their character...Tie would be a really good example of that." (Glenn Healy)

Product Description

Instant #1 National Bestseller

From hockey’s most prolific fighter comes a sports memoir unlike any other—passionate, funny, and candid, Shift Work chronicles Domi’s sixteen tumultuous seasons in the NHL.

Making it through a single fight as an enforcer in the NHL is a sign of toughness. Making it through 333 of them is a mark of greatness. Whether it was on the ice or off it, Tie Domi was driven to be the best at his job and was gifted with an extraordinary ability to withstand pain. He made a career out of protecting the people around him and became known as someone who would stand up for the people who needed it most.

Raised by immigrant parents in Belle River, Domi found success from an early age on the field and the rink. A gifted athlete in whatever sport he played, Tie eventually focused his sights on hockey. As he moved up the junior ranks, he made a name for himself as a player who was always ready to take on anyone who dared to cross his teammates.

Tie’s reputation followed him into the NHL, and it wasn’t long before he ranked among the game’s most feared—and fearless—enforcers. From New York to Winnipeg to Toronto, Tie quickly became a fan favourite in whatever city he played. As he went about working his name into the record books, Tie surrounded himself with people from every walk of life, learning from each one as he evolved into a respected leader who was never afraid to tell it like it was.

In Shift Work, Tie recounts the ups and downs of his life on and off the ice, showing what he has learned and how he has grown as both a player and a person. He offers insight into the most memorable points of his career, sharing his successes and mistakes with unparalleled honesty. Shift Work shows Tie Domi as he is—a devoted father and friend, a valued and loyal team player, a magnetic personality, and an athlete of immense skill and courage.

terrible. Nothing but him bragging about how great of a guy he is and how tough he is and how he never lost a fight also nothing but making excuses for the bad things he did... Just terrible... I couldn't even finish it, it was that bad. Sad because I was a huge fan of his and this book showed what type of person he really is.

Somewhat interesting if you were a leaf fan when he played. He wouldn't even mention names of players in the book he told some stories about. "that player" "that teammate". Just say his name. He was worried about people getting mad at him which resulted in very superficial stories. Spent a lot of time bragging about how he talked to security/valets/servers etc at the arena which made him an awesome person. Read Theo Fleu's book if you want some interesting stories.

By Steven R. McEvoy HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on Dec 10 2015
Format: Hardcover
This book was an interesting read. Never having been a Leaf's fan, I was always a fan of Domi. I do not recall his first few games with Toronto or even much of his early years playing for the ranges. But I became a big fan when he played in Winnipeg and continued to follow him when he was in Toronto. I was really intrigued when I first heard about this book and was excited to pick it up the day it came out.

Domi has always seemed like a stand-up guy. He was great to watch and some of his stories only confirm that assumption. The best stories in the book revolve around Mark Messier, Mario Lemieux, or Matts Sundin. The first half of the book is amazing, I could not put it down and kept saying just one more section. However the second half of the book the post hockey part slows down a lot. There are some great stories and some great life advice but just not as gripping as the first half.

When a friend at work found out I was reading this he asked how much Tie flogged his son and his hockey. By that point in the book it had hardly been mentioned. There was a section on each of Tie's three kids and how proud he is of them but it did seem a little slanted towards Max.

One of the greatest things about this book is Tie's attitude towards how you treat people, and not just people of power or influence but everyone. Stories about friendships with parking attendants, people who shine shoes or even the barista's at the local coffee shop. From the earliest stories to then end one of the main focuses is the importance of treating everyone right.

This book is a collection of stories and for the most part they are well told. The stories are written in Tie's own words or from interviews done by Jim Lang. Overall it was a good read and very enjoyable.

Domi was never one of my favourite players but I enjoyed reading his book. I have read several books of this type by former athletes and most of them are about the hard lives the lived while playing. Drinking and drugs so it was very nice to see Domi was not like that. His family was very important to him. He mentioned his kids often in this book.

I'm not a big fan of hockey but I like reading bios and thought reading Tie Domi's story would be interesting.

Tie Domi is a retired Canadian professional hockey player. Known for his role as an enforcer, he played for the Toronto Maple Leafs, New York Rangers and Winnipeg Jets over a sixteen-year NHL career. He has more penalty minutes than any other player in the history of the Maple Leafs and third overall in penalty minutes in NHL history.

In the book, Domi talks give a high level description about his life, from his beginnings as the son of Albanian immigrants who moved to Canada and settled outside of Windsor. He was very good in sports and eventually focused on hockey. He spent most of his years in the NHL as a player of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

My favourite chapter was chapter 11, in which he talks about how important it is to treat people well, regardless of who they are or what their job is.

I enjoyed the writing style. Obviously there is a lot about hockey and his interactions with other players in this book but I didn't find it boring even though I'm not not a big hockey fan. You'll especially enjoy this book if you are a hockey fan.

Like some other reviewers, I found this book to be about Tie telling us how fearless he was, perhaps too much, a constant theme. There were interesting anecdotes, criticisms of former association president Bob Goodenow and one-time Leafs GM, John Ferguson Jr. Otherwise, there wasn't nearly enough of that to make it a captivating read. It was as though Tie was still in the game, overly protective of his mates. Lifetime Leafs fans will of course love. The like anything penned by any former player from that team. Looking at this book objectively and dispassionately, however, Tie could have delved into matters much deeper and made it a better read. Give us more to chew on, Tie.

Don't expect anything scientific or empirical proven here. This book is a nice and entertaining read. Towards the end, it does get a little bit too much in the moral "this is how you should be as a person" direction for my taste, though. But I enjoyed the first half a lot.
