"When Bruce Boudreau was a scoring star for the junior Toronto Marlboros, I was in the stands at Maple Leaf Gardens cheering him on and now that he's an NHL coach he's still one of my favorite hockey people. Gabby is one of the great people in the game and his story is one of a love affair with the game of hockey; all levels of hockey, not just the NHL. Gabby's story is a must-read, because it's every bit as funny and quirky and nice as the man himself." --Bob McKenzie, TSN Hockey Insider
"Bruce Boudreau is hockey's Everyman, a droll and loquacious fellow who has been everywhere there is ice and who knows everyone who ever has strapped on a pair of skates. Now the Washington Capitals coach takes you on the rollicking, inspiring ride with him. Make sure you demand frequent Greyhound points." --Michael Farber, Sports Illustrated
"As Don Cherry, who wrote a foreword for this book, said: `I know you'll enjoy it.'" --www.hockeyjournal.com, December 5, 2009
"A great tale of perseverance and positive thinking. After reading it, you can't help but root for the `Columbo' of the NHL." --www.faceoff.com, December 10, 2009
