A true Hockey story

An extremly important story about one of sports most dedicated people. Roger Neilson devoted his life to many and Wayne Scanlan does his legacy justice by devoting himself to Roger. The facts are amazing and this story will fill in any blaks you may have of Roger's life.

Interesting, informative, and funny...a cover-to-cover gem!

I accidentally came across a copy of 'Roger's World' in a bookstore in downtown Philadelphia. After reading it front to back in one sitting, it amazes me that there wasn't any publicity (at least in cities where Roger coached) surrounding the release of this book. Wayne Scanlan has managed to do the impossible; he's managed to fit the very fulfilling life of Roger Neilson into just about 200 pages. Don't let the length of the book fool you, however. Scanlan managed to not only unearth a slew of interesting facts and hilarious stories about Roger's coaching stints in baseball and hockey, but he also gives a very rare glimpse into the personal side of a man who touched so many lives outside of the realm of pro sports. Fans of all sports should embrace this biography, but hockey fans -- and especially anyone who ever had the good fortune to witness Roger behind a bench -- should consider it a 'must read'. The chapter about Roger's quirks and mishaps will have you roaring with laughter, and the seemingly endless stories about his grace and kindness as a human being will surely cause even the toughest 'checkers' to shed a tear or two.
