    Love Hockey? Read this book!!

    Patrick Roy-The Icon

    Patrick Roy. Winning. Nothing Else. is an amazing book about the struggles of a man who has been through every young hockey players dreams. The book starts out with his first Stanley Cup series win with the Montreal Canadiens and how exciting it was for him. Then it gets into explaining the authors' background (Patrick's father Michel) and how he believed, from an early age, that his son was going to be an amazing hockey player. Not so much in the cocky way, but in the serious, professional coach way. The rest of the book describes his travels through over twelve different teams, before he even reached his professional career. It goes in depth about the way he loved the game, and how all of his team mates adored him, and how much they appreciate everything that he has accomplished.
    The book was an incredibly detailed story of everything that Patrick went through, team wise, and routine wise. Michel is a very talented writer when it comes to his son, because he described all of the events, big and small, in such great detail that it felt as if you were right in the middle of the story. I liked everything about this book, especially chapter 12. This chapter explained, through Michel's eyes, what a goalie is, and how he reacts to any situation, whether it is in the game or outside; it fits it to a T. Since I am a goalie, I understand everything that he said. It was a little freaky with how precise, and correct he was, which makes me think that Patrick had to have been asked on what to write in the chapter. The thing that bothered me the most in the book, and there wasn't much, was all the French names, and places. They were small blips in the chapters, but it was still frustrating because I didn't understand what they meant.
    If you play hockey, or really like hockey, then you need to read this book. It has so many details in it about hockey in general, that you don't even need to be a goalie to like this book. Patrick was a very talented man in how he understood the game, and never took anything or anyone for granted. Michel kept reminding the reader that Patrick was always going to his goalie coach about ways that he could improve every practice he could. My overall rating on this book is definitely a five out of five. There is no doubt that this book didn't deserve it because it was very well written, and had such great detail that it grabbed you every time you opened it.

    Great Book

    I am a huge Patrick Roy fan. I have followed his career since his early days, so this was a great book for me. A good book for anyone who loves and enjoys watching hockey. He was and still is the greatest goalie ever.
    He was goalie for my Colorado Avalanche, so I got to see him a lot.
