His surname means “The Best,” and Mario Lemieux spent a 12-season National Hockey League career living up to the expectations. Despite a relentless series of medical setbacks, including a well-publicized battle with cancer, Lemieux led the Pittsburgh Penguins to two Stanley Cups and won six NHL scoring titles before retiring in 1997 at the tender age of 31. In the book Lemieux tells his story in his own words. He has always been a man of few words, but he has a great story to tell.
