Not that this makes for a boring, just-the-facts, life story: it is, in fact, an engaging and fluid read, and interesting as hell. Well, to ME this is incredibly interesting stuff; whether or not you are a hockey fan, a Bruins fan, and/or a Bobby Orr fan will obviously impact your level of interest. As a lifelong hockey/Bruins/Orr fan who was 9 when Orr scored the 1970 overtime goal and who lived in a seaside town in Boston Harbor where several Bruins players lived (Doug Roberts lived a few houses away from me and I met many of the Bruins - but NOT Orr), I obviously have a higher level of interest. But the book is, in fact, lively and entertaining throughout, even for the casual reader. To a fan, it is so much more: because Orr never talked or wrote about himself previously (his two books in the 1970s were about hockey, the game, not about him), we had only a vague notion of his history. An entire 309-page book about Bobby Orr's life? Thank you, God.Read more ›
Orr concludes the book by giving his opinions on the state of the game today and mentions suggested rule changes he would make and the reasons for them. Included also is suggested practical advice for up-and-coming hockey players and questions they should ask themselves if they plan on continuing their dream on playing in the National Hockey League.
I am not a hockey fan but for those who have children in any sport I would highly recommend this book to be read by both parents and children. I also found it refreshing in that there are no profanities in the book. Hockey fan or not this book is must reading for the reasons I mention above.
