Very heartbreaking. The book helped me to understand hockey and to see the other side of the sport. The content repeat itself in some parts, but this does not stop this book being good.

Heartbreaking. The author traces the life of one of hockey's most feared 'enforcers'/fighters and his all-too-preventable death. Sad and wrenching and beautifully written and much more than a sports biography.
