Publisher's Summary

For the first time, the legendary Hall of Fame hockey player and six-time Stanley Cup champion tells the impressive story of his life and career and shares the lessons he’s learned about leadership.

Mark Messier is one of the most accomplished athletes and dynamic leaders in the history of professional sports. He won the Stanley Cup five times with the Edmonton Oilers during their dynasty years and once more with the New York Rangers, ending the team’s 54-year championship drought. He is second on the all-time career lists for playoff points and third for regular season games played and for regular season points. Notably, he is the only player to have captained two different NHL franchises to championships.

The amazing records are there for anyone to see, but few people know the real Mark Messier. This is his story. Messier reveals the astonishing journey he took to making NHL history and the leadership philosophy he learned along the way. He recounts never-before-told tales from his childhood as the son of a hockey player, coach, and special education teacher; his years as a teammate and friend of Wayne Gretzky; and his evolution from a brash 18-year-old rookie to a distinctive captain and champion. Though bruising on the ice, he led teams with a deep understanding of what inspires and motivates people. He shares the advice he got from the inspirational leaders who had the greatest influence on him, and the lessons he gleaned from the pivotal successes - and sometimes failures - of his career.

More than a book about hockey, No One Wins Alone demonstrates what it means to build a life, achieve dreams, and support the people around you. “My real wish,” Messier says, “is to inspire people to reach their full potential.”

What the critics say

“Messier isn’t just one of the greatest hockey players ever—he’s also a keen observer of leadership and teamwork dynamics. This book is filled with insights about building cultures of excellence that will come in handy even if you’re not a sports fan.” — ADAM GRANT, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Think Again and host of the TED podcast WorkLife

“An inspirational memoir that transcends sports.” — DAVID GRANN, journalist for The New Yorker and bestselling author of The Lost City of Z

“I've always been fascinated by what makes up a champion, and No One Wins Alone is a window into the mind of one of the greatest hockey players and leaders of all time. It speaks to something I’ve always felt is essential for success: a winning mentality. This book is about much more than just hockey. It has lessons anyone can use—be it in sports, business, or life. — JACK NICKLAUS, championship golfer and bestselling author of Golf My Way

Waste of your time

The content is very weak, Messier does a great job telling us how amazing he is. His chapter on his stint with Canucks was a whitewash.

Interesting and Insightful

Living in Edmonton and hearing the name Messier (obviously among others), on T.V. growing up and watching Gretzky lift the cup for the first time with my Dad. This book is awesome. As biased as that sounds.

Autobiographies should be read by the author

I wish Mark would of read the whole book instead of just two parts. It always bums me out when the author of a non fiction audiobook isn’t the narrator. Story was great and the narrator was fine but would’ve been much better with the Moose doing it himself!

Great listen!!!

As a Flames fan I used to hate this player but also respected the way he played. Messier shared some great stories and I especially enjoyed the ones about his dad Doug.

I feel like I know him after listening to this book!!!

Highly recommend!!!
