Rob Gordon is a geophysicist and the author of the oddly titled, I Wayne Gretzky. It is a book filled with humorous stories from his life told in a down to earth manner. It spans several continents and features cameo appearances by the likes Phil Esposito, Nancy and Ronald Reagan, Gordon Lightfoot and the Great One himself. It begins by retelling how Rob got Wayne Gretzky’s first pro autograph. Rob and Wayne were high school classmates after Gretzky went to play for the Soo Greyhounds in Sault Saint Marie. They were seated alphabetically and the rest is, as they say, history. Rob stopped by to answer a few questions about his book and his experience with self publishing.
For anyone attending PDAC 2014, March 2-5, Rob will be signing copies at Caracle Creek’s booth, #150. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Mining Matters. An excerpt of the book can be found here (under the Click to Look Inside tab).
