If you were a hockey fan in the 80s-90s, then you'll love it.
It is pretty heavy shit that he went through and still perform at the highest level.
He has obviously done his homework as far as recounting great moments from that era of hockey.
Everything is connected, because it's all being created by this one consciousness. And we are tiny reflections of the mind that is creating the universe.

I just finished Dune Messiah. I know the movie won't cover it but it was good and I am now more hyped to see this world on a screen. Might take a break before the third and read something else. I haven't decided yet.

Pretty fun so far.  Only recently have I really began to enjoy their music outside of Hot Rocks for example.  Sticky Fingers definitely helped open a few more doors, now I'm walking all over their house/mansion!  Its fun comparing bands as well, their timelines and evolution.  Keith is a great story teller, very clear recollections and insights.  Looking forward to more.

I read a couple Haruki Marukami books - Norwegian wood and South of the border, West of the sun.
Now I am reading Beats and B-Sides by Laurent Fintoni & Midnight Library by Matt Haig

Currently on a non-fiction kick, scholarly works for popular readership:

"These Truths: A History of the United States" by Jill Lepore;

"A History of God: The 4,000-Year Quest of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam" by Karen Armstrong; and

"Against the Grain: A Deep History of the Earliest States" by James C. Scott.

Interesting material and easy to put down/pick up again.

What did you think of those Marukami books? I recently read his collection of stories "Men Without Women" and enjoyed it, but I have no other experience with the author.
Is this still Wombat?

I enjoyed them. They were easy to read even though it wasn't the most captivating story. Some elements of Realism throughout and a lot of introspect with main characters.
