    This is a great read for anyone, not just hockey parents While statistics, research and a look at the benefits and downsides to organized youth sports are part of the book, they are woven throughout a narrative storyline of a year or so in the author s life It s relatable, honest, raw and reflective and, in my opinion, Abdou s best work to date.
