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.

Any additional comments?

A light read that was quite interesting with self-deprecating humour throughout. Unfortunately, narration had a lot to be desired. Hearing Kirby's voice speak John Scott's words was off putting with mispronounced words throughout. I'm sure Kirby is a fine narrator, but I just wish they had looked to find a narrator more suited to this autobiography.
