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.
One of those rare athletes whose skills raise the level of his sport, Mario Lemieux, who twice led the Pittsburgh Penguins to the Stanley Cup, was a courageous and charismatic presence from the moment he skated onto the ice; he deposited his first NHL shot into the net, and never looked back. No defense could stop him, not even Hodgkin's disease. He forechecked just about everything that stood between him and his goals--both on and off the ice. Lemieux retired in 1997, his place in the hockey pantheon assured, and The Final Period, with its dazzling display of text and photographs, is a brilliant tribute to his career.
