The NHL legend tells his story from his Ontario childhood to his years with the Bruins and Blackhawks, to today. 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. Now he breaks his silence in a memoir as unique as the man himself.
What John Kerry says
A gift I received for my 70th birthday. Orr is my Boston Bruins idol and reading this one, I’m just struck by what a class act he is off the ice. Humble, self-effacing, generous, he’s class personified. And in my mind he’ll always be soaring through the air in that famous image.
