The ultimate hockey dad, Karl Subban is a former school principal and father of five, including three sons - P. K., Malcolm, and Jordan - who have been drafted to the NHL. Karl's inspirational and moving story follows the hockey journey from house league to the big leagues and shows how to grow the unlimited potential that is in every child. In his 30-plus years of coaching, teaching, and parenting, Karl Subban has proved to be a leader with the gift of inspiring others. He has dedicated his life to helping young people grow their potential - to be better at what they do and to be better people. Originally from Jamaica, Karl Subban and his wife, Maria, have raised five accomplished children. Their oldest son is P. K. Subban, who won the Norris trophy for top defenseman in the NHL and whose trade from the Canadiens to the Nashville Predators shocked the hockey world. Their two daughters are teachers, one a university basketball star and the other a talented visual artist. Their two youngest sons, Malcolm and Jordan, have been drafted and signed by the Bruins and the Canucks. As a child, Karl dreamed of being a star cricket player - but when he moved to Canada at age 12, hockey and basketball became his new passions. At university, when he realized his NBA hoop dreams would not come to be, Subban found his true destiny as an educator, devoting his life to bringing out the best in his students and his children. From the backyard hockey rink to the nail-biting suspense of draft days, Karl Subban shares tales of his family's unique hockey journey. Mixing personal stories with lessons he learned as a coach and principal - lessons about goal setting, perseverance, and accomplishment - How We Did It will allow other parents, teachers, coaches, and mentors to apply the same principles as they help the young people in their lives to identify, develop, and live their dreams.

Please note: This is an analysis and key takeaways of the book and not the original book. Start Publishing Notes' Summary, Analysis, and Review of Malcolm Gladwell's Outliers: The Story of Success includes a summary of the book, review, analysis and key takeaways, and detailed "about the author" section. Malcolm Gladwell's Outliers: The Story of Success argues that success is not solely the result of merit and hard work. Rather, Gladwell says extremely successful people are successful because they were in the right place at the right time, or because they received crucial help. In order to understand success, it is important to look not at the characteristics of the individual, but at the social and cultural factors that enable success. Sports are often seen as a uniquely meritocratic endeavor. People believe that the most physically talented athletes are the most successful. However, this is not true. In fact, in Canada, children whose birthdays fall just before the cut-off date for participation in youth leagues have a huge advantage. These children are the oldest ones in their leagues, and so are most developed, and are stronger and faster than their peers. In Canada, this means that they are chosen to move into more advanced teams and leagues, and so get more practice and training. As a result, almost all professional hockey players in Canada have birthdays clustered around the dates just before the youth league cut-offs. The professional players all have great talent, and all work hard. However, what truly made them outliers was not work or skill, but the accident of their birthdays. 1. Language: English.

Not every goalie plays it safe.... As a publicist for the San Francisco Thunder hockey team, Dixie Braddock is too busy rescuing the players from trouble to get into any of her own. Except, of course, when it comes to the super-hot new goalie. Because when a guy's kiss curls your toes and sets your heart on fire, how the hell do you just walk away? But if anyone ever catches them together, she'll lose her job faster than any slapshot. Eli Casco is on the brink of having everything he ever wanted. He's finally been called up from the minor leagues to play on a championship team. And he just had the most mind-blowing night with the woman of his dreams. But now that he's an official Thunder player, Dixie is determined to keep her distance. None of the fame and fortune means anything to him without her to share it. If he truly wants Dixie in his life, it's time to throw down his gloves and put everything on the line. 1. Language: English. Narrator: J. F. Harding, Holly Chandler.
