Summary, etc.: For the first time, Gretzky discusses candidly what the game looks like to him and introduces us to the people who inspired and motivated him: mentors, teammates, rivals, the famous and the lesser known. Weaving together lives and moments from an extraordinary career, he reflects on the players who inflamed his imagination when he was a kid, the way he himself figured in the dreams of so many who came after; takes us onto the ice and into the dressing rooms to meet the friends who stood by him and the rivals who spurred him to greater heights; shows us some of the famous moments in hockey history through the eyes of someone who regularly made that history. Warm, direct, and revelatory, it is a book that gives us number 99, the man and the player, like never before.--Provided by publisher.
First he rewrote the record book. How Gretzky rewrites the history of hockey. He looks back on the last ninety-nine years and tells-- from his point of view-- about the NHL's most memorable moments. Gretzky weaves in his own memories with the saga of the game that has meant so much to him.
