Overview

The NHL legend tells his story from his Ontario childhood to his years with the Bruins and Blackhawks, to today.  New York Times Bestseller! 

 Bobby Orr is often referred to as the greatest defenseman ever to play the game of hockey. But all the brilliant achievements leave unsaid as much as they reveal. They don’t tell what inspired Orr, what drove him, what it was like for a shy small-town kid to suddenly land in the full glare of the media. They don’t tell what it was like when the agent he regarded as a brother betrayed him and left him in financial ruin. They don’t tell what he thinks of the game of hockey today.

Now he breaks his silence in a memoir as unique as the man himself…

Praise

“This is a book more about a man than about a hockey player…Epic and noble.”—The Atlantic

“A must-read for anyone…who fondly remembers the glory years of the Big Bad Bruins.”—The Sun Chronicle

“[Orr] wrote the book…as if he were coaching both his sport and society, delivering lessons in honor and responsibility while he examines hockey at its best and worst.”—The Boston Globe

“A gripping personal record: tracing the arc from stunning rookie phenom to defeated hero. The story is moving. It’s a book that devotees of sport have to have on their bookshelves.”—Winnipeg Free Press
