There's a famous saying commonly used back home in Slovakia 'love can move the mountains' and that's exactly what Dick did for his son, Rick. I've never met anybody who worked harder than Dick and Rick Hoyt. This book is an unbelievable story; it's goes way beyond just racing, it defines what the true meaning of passion really is."--Zdeno Chara, Boston Bruins
