The bestselling story of a true warrior's toughest battle, now in paperback
     It seemed as though nothing could stop Jordin Tootoo on the ice. The captain, a fan favourite, a star in international competition, Tootoo was always a leader. And when he was drafted by Nashville in 2001 and made the Predators out of camp in 2003, he became a leader in another way--as the first player of Inuk descent to suit up in the NHL.
    All the challenges and pressure would have been more than enough for any rookie, but Tootoo faced something far more difficult: the tragic loss of his older brother before his first shift for the Predators. Though he played through it, Tootoo suffered from many of the same problems that have plagued so many people from his community. In 2010, he checked himself into rehab for alcohol addiction. It seemed as though a promising career had ended too soon.
     But that's not the way Tootoo saw it and not the way it would end. Told in Tootoo's bold voice, with contributions by Stephen Brunt, arguably one of the best sportswriters, All the Way is the searing, honest tale of a young man who has risen to every challenge but all too nearly fell short in the toughest game of all.
JORDIN TOOTOO plays right wing for the NHL New Jersey Devils and has also played for the Detroit Red Wings and the Nashville Predators. Of Inuit and Ukrainian descent, he is both the first Inuk player and the first player to grow up in Nunavut to participate in the NHL. STEPHEN BRUNT is currently with Sportsnet, co-host on The FAN 590'...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Memoir This memoir by Jordin Too Too is an excellent account of real life struggles in Canada's north. This is one of the best memoirs that I have read by a FNMI individual. The novel is honest and Jordin does an excellent job on describing both his ups and downs in his life and how his life changed after being part of the NHL. Jordin is an inspiration and a great advocate for young hockey players in the north.
