When someone offers you a book, it is rude not to read it. Otherwise, I would not have read this book. I deliberately avoid autobiographies and authorized biographies because they are inherently self-serving. There should be rule that no one's life can be chronicled until after he's dead. I certainly don't want Brad Park to die. I enjoyed reading about his life, his family and his career both on and off the ice.

However, this book was too often a dull recitation of 17 years worth of game scores.
A thorough and detailed bio of the Bruins/Rangers star. Obviously well-researched, this is not a typical hockey star bio. Brad's story is told through numerous interview quotes (most of them new for this book), but we also get new interview quotes from many of his teammates, coaches, opponents and family members. You need to be a committed fan of 70s NHL hockey to get the most out of this, but it's all woven together into a strong, engaging narrative.
