Abstract:

For the first time, Wayne Gretzky discusses candidly what the game looks like to him and introduces listeners to the people who inspired and motivated him. 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 listeners 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 people some of the famous moments in hockey history through the eyes of someone who regularly made that history.
