A solid memoir about a hockey family - a family of Jamaican origin where both parents came from Jamaica and did not grow up with hockey. Now three members of the Subban family are in the NHL and PK the eldest has won the Norris trophy for being the best defense-man in the league. Yes, PK (and his brothers too ) have faced discrimination and the occasional N word but they have been classy about it as their parents taught them. So, what is the Subban family's formula for success? Neither Karl nor his wife Maria had a sense of entitlement. They believed one had to have dreams and work very hard to achieve these dreams. They supported their sons and their two daughters in their dreams and they have been widely successful. Karl himself wanted to play Basketball in the NBA but didn't make the cut. He went to plan B and worked hard to become a teacher and then a Principal. He succeeded in these too and now he is a highly rated public speaker. All these exploits make for interesting reading and makes the book an excellent read.
