The John Scott story is the ultimate underdog narrative in sports during 2016 when Scott - in the twilight of his career - went from a joke All-Star fan-voted nominee to scoring two goals and winning the All-Star Game's MVP title. This is his heartwarming story about an average Joe who became a sports superhero overnight. Known as a willing-and-able fighter and bruiser in the league, John Scott was a surprising and tongue-and-cheek nominee for the 2016 NHL All-Star Game.

Amazing story, I voted for Mr. Scott in the Allstar voting that year and it was a crazy story to watch unfold. awesome book, can't wait for the movie. I will say this though, having someone who cleary has never watched hockey(or at least seems that way) read this story and butcher so many great names from the game was really hard to listen to and snapped me right out of the story everytime. no offence to they guy, but I figured a hockey book would have been performed by a hockey fan.

At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

This is one of, if not my favourite book. Read it twice and have now listened to it three times and will many more. Wil Wheaton kills it and really makes the story come alive! A+
