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... Includes photographs"

About Bobby Orr

Bobby Orr played for the Boston Bruins from 1966 to 1976, and then two more years for the Chicago Blackhawks. Among other records and honors, he remains the only defenseman to win the Art Ross Trophy league scoring title twice and he still holds the record for most points and assists at that position. He also won a record eight consecutive Norris Trophies as the NHL s best defenseman, and three consecutive Hart Trophies as the league s MVP, as well as two Conn Smythe Trophies as the Stanley Cup MVP. Orr was the youngest living player to be inducted in the Hockey Hall of Fame, at thirty-one."
