Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Mark Howe starred 16 years in the National Hockey League and six in the World Hockey Association, but this Hockey Hall of Famer has always been identified most frequently not as a great athlete, but as the son of "Mr. Hockey" Gordie Howe. This autobiography, however, is no whine for pity. Gordie Howe's Son is, in fact, both a family history and a trove of reminiscences about his own glory days with teams including the Philadelphia Flyers and Detroit Red Wings. A first-person story about being born to glory and somehow living up to expectations.
