Memoir of a Hockey Nobody: They said I couldn't make the NHL, so I went out and proved them right!

Memoir of a Hockey Nobody is the unlikely true story of an average Canadian kid who grew up playing street hockey. Although he didn't learn how to skate until his late teens, he took a shot at entering the world of professional ice hockey with, shall we say, haphazard results.



This is an "against all odds" tale of one man's journey from Vancouver, to all over Western Canada

This book was exactly what I needed. A brilliant tale of daring to reach for your dreams, no matter how difficult or lofty they are. A book that shows you that things may get tough and you may or may not succeed, but the journey toward your dreams is always worth travelling.

This book was hilarious, honest and so worth experiencing the path he took and the trials he fought through to achieve his dreams. It was inspiring and very interesting. This is definitely a book I highly recommend.

Most sports memoirs are written by athletes who have achieved great success in their sports career, have very interesting stories to share along the way, and then somehow tie this all in with what has happened in their lives that makes for an ending that often sounds like one from a storybook. This hockey memoir by Jerry Hack has only the interesting stories from this list.

However, one should not let that fact deter him or her from reading this book as not only is it filled with great and humor

Memoir of a Hockey Nobody is a funny, witty and entirely authentic read!

This is a great story of perseverance and passion for the game. I was reminded of the classic, Rudy, while reading along. You'll find similarities in integrity and passion between Rudy and the author Jerry Hack.

Memoirs of a Hockey Nobody is laugh-out-loud funny and a book that players and fans will enjoy!
If you love an entertaining page-turner, then I highly recommend this book!
