Jeremy Roenick, one of the premier hockey players of his generation and one of the greatest American stars the NHL has ever known, shares his life story in this frank and unflinching autobiography. After making his debut as an 18-year-old with the Chicago Blackhawks, Roenick thrilled fans with his flashy style, take-no-prisoners approach, and jaw-dropping skills. A native of Boston, Roenick went on to play for four more franchises—including the Philadelphia Flyers and Los Angeles Kings—during his incredible 18-season career. By the time he was through, Roenick had racked up 513 goals—the second most of any American-born player—and 703 assists. Now a tells-it-like-it-is commentator for NBC and the NHL, Roenick takes readers on a behind-the-scenes, warts-and-all tour through his illustrious career, both on and off the ice.

As a hockey fan and a lifelong Blackhawks fan I appreciate hearing the first hand stories of an accomplished superstar. JR's candor in his writing echoes his "tell it like it is" attitude as a player and now commentator.
A must read for any hockey enthusiast, young or old, T JR!
One of my ALL TIME FAVORITES!!!
One of my ALL TIME FAVORITE BLACKHAWKS I loved the way JR played the game and followed his career even after he was traded hoping one day I would get to see him wearing a Blackhawks sweater again. The book was an interesting insight into JR's career and a behind the scenes look at all of his career adventures on and off the ice!!!
