Documenting his notorious career with the Detroit Red Wings and the Chicago Blackhawks, Bob Probert details in this autobiography how he racked up points, penalty minutes, and bar bills, establishing himself as one of the most feared enforcers in the history of the NHL. As Probert played as hard off the ice as on, he went through rehab 10 times, was suspended twice, was jailed for carrying cocaine across the border, and survived a near fatal motorcycle crash all during his professional career, and he wanted to tell his story in his own words to set the record straight. When he died unexpectedly of a heart attack at the age of 45 on July 5, 2010, he was hard at work on his memoir—a gripping journey through the life of Bob Probert, with jaw-dropping stories of his on-ice battles and his reckless encounters with drugs, alcohol, police, customs officials, courts, and the NHL, told in his own voice and with his rich sense of humor.

This book was amazing. Couldn't stop reading it. Think I read it in just two sittings. I am a just hockey fan and love to ready biographies and this is one of my favorites of the many I have read.
This book I couldn't put it down. I wanted to reach to the end of it. Very good book, am glad that his family decide to go ahead with the book to finish it and yes I do believe Bob is proud that you all finish his book. Am a very proud Canadian and I hockey fan. And I love this book. Thank you so much for a great book. And yes I did cry a lot, but it was worth it.
Dani thank you for standing by your best friend, if you hadn't he would have been got a long time ago. May the Lord be with you, and your family.
