Interesting book, but he really hits you every few pages with the "how to treat people" line. I got it after the first few times, Tie!

Growing up in the 90s, Tie Domi was one of my all-time favourite hockey players. Despite his smaller frame, he was fearless in battling some of league's toughest enforcers from Rob Ray to Donald Brashear. A folk hero for much of working-class Toronto, he could seemingly do no wrong as he racked up thousands of penalty minutes defending his teammates. So when I heard that he published his autobiography, I definitely wanted to check it out. For the most part, I really enjoyed the stories he tells about the famous fights against Bob Probert - hockey's equivalent of Ali vs Frazier - or the incident where he duked it out with a Flyer fan in the penalty box. And his words of advice on how to treat people, no matter what their station is in life, certainly resonated with someone like me who is in the customer service industry. My only critique was that I wish more had been dedicated to his dealings with Leafs GM John Ferguson, who he clearly doesn't like. As a key turning point in the history of the team, it would have been interesting for him to expand on how Toronto went from a playoff contender to a laughingstock over the past decade. Other than that, the behind-the-scenes anecdotes are phenomenal and his life story growing up in Belle River was certainly interesting to read. As someone who has transitioned nicely from hockey player to businessman, I have an enormous amount of respect for Domi and what he has done both on and off the ice.
