Mr. Hockey: My Story

By Gordie Howe
"The definitive autobiography from hockey s greatest living legend Mr. Hockey himself, Gordie Howe."
Big, skilled, tough on the ice, and nearly indestructible, Howe dominated both the sport and the record books like no one has before or since. Over an incredible six decades, the Hall of Famer had so many accomplishments that he set the record for the most records by any athlete ever in any sport. He also achieved the remarkable feat of playing for six years with his own two sons, Mark and Marty.
But Howe did not inspire generations of hockey players simply by rewriting the record books. When people talk about him, it s the man they revere even more than the player. Despite his ferocity on the ice, Howe s name has long been a byword for decency and generosity. A family man, a man of his word, a lifelong ambassador for the game, he is a true icon, and now he takes us through it all, from his Depression-era childhood and early obstacles through the ups and downs of his spectacular career, to his enduring marriage and close relationship with his children, to his thoughts on the game of hockey today.
There has never been a comprehensive account of Howe s life from the man himself. Now is the time."
