    1. check point 2 Something thats really stood out to me when reading sidney Crosby taking the game by storm is crosbys success and seriousness about the game at such a young age i think this could very well be attributed partially to the hockey culture in canada i would compare it to football in america, but that wouldn t be doing it justice, in canada hockey isn t a game, its a lifestyle a clich saying that if true about anything, its this Crosby holds so many records as the youngest player to th [...]

    2. I grew up in Pittsburgh going to Penguins games for a very long time I looked up to Lemieux and Jagr and oddly enough, Crosby made his debut in the NHL the same year I started college In a way, we both had our rookie years at the same time When he came into the Penguins organization, the team was struggling to win games and fill seats I never got a chance to see him in his debut season, mostly due to weather disrupting travels to the games we wanted to go to, but I have seen him play every year [...]

    3. I like SIdney Crosby and before i bought this book i read the reviews and everyone was like it is a great book, so i had high expectations but to be honest the book was not that good At points it dragged and half the time it was not even about Sidney Crosby It was confusing and hard to follow This book shouldnt even have been published because it was a very bad book It had nice pictures though but if you want to read about sidney crosby do not get this book.

    4. Gives a lot of insight into not just crosby working his way into the NHL but the Canadian hockey system itself.

    5. I think that this a great book Its a hard one to read though This book will take you through is whole life.

    6. Learned a lot of hockey tidbits from this book Was a little surprised to come across the name of a Merritt boy in the story Cool.

    7. I ve always found the developmental side of hockey interesting than when guys actually make it to the pros, so I really liked this book.
