After breaking or tying more than sixty records in hockey, it's no wonder that Wayne Gretzky is known as "The Great One." Born in Brantford, Ontario, on January 26, 1961, in a nation obsessed with the sport, he threw himself into the game practically from the time he first laced up a pair of skates. When he retired from the NHL in 1999, he had led several teams to Stanley Cup victories, competed in the Olympics, and changed the way hockey was played forever. Known for his love for family and as a truly decent human being, Wayne Gretzky is revealed as more than a sports legend in this easy-to-read biography.

    I give this book a 4 star because its not the best book i ever read but it was still good. The connection I made with this book is that Wayne Gretzky played sports when he was a kid and so did I. This book mostly tells you about what he did as a child and as he grew up to be one of the best hockey players of all time. When he was a kid he liked to play the hockey. As he got older he was so good that he would go to the NHL(national Hockey League).
