About the Author

Sheldon Kennedy skated for three teams in his eight-year NHL career and played for Canada's gold-medal-winning team in the 1988 World Junior Hockey Championship. He is best known for his courageous decision to charge his minor-league hockey coach, Graham James, with sexual assault for the abuse he suffered over a five-year period while a teenager under Graham's care. Sheldon's subsequent decision to go public with the charges rocked the hockey world and thrust him into the media spotlight, where he became an unofficial spokesperson for millions of sexual abuse survivors in North America. His life story was made into an award-winning television movie, and he has appeared on Oprah, ABC's Nightline, W5, and The Fifth Estate.After retiring from the NHL, Sheldon in-line skated across Canada to raise awareness of sexual abuse issues. Sheldon now works as a youth counsellor in Calgary, where he lives with his daughter, Ryan.

Format: Hardcover
Sheldon Kennedy was a hocky player that seemed destined for greatness. He played for Canada's gold-medal-winning at the 1988 World Junior Hockey Championship. Then when he reached the major leagues he fell apart. It never seemed that his skill or talent was too low, but the drinking, drugs and other off the court antics seemed to create an atmosphere doomed for failure. He drifted through three teams in a nine year career, never reaching the heights that seemed within his grasp.

Upon his retirement, he announced that during his early years of being coached by Graham James he had been sexually molested by James several hundred times.

Most of this book is on the after effects in Kennedy's life as a result of the abuse. It is a story of using drugs and alcohol in an attempt to heal what never should have been in the first place. It was a fierce struggle that is continuing to this day.

This book isn't for the weak at heart. Sheldon hockey player was the first to come out with allegations against Graham James. The story rocked the hockey community. Although, in recent times, Theo Fleury has received more news for Playing With Fire, I found this one to be a "better" read. It was more coherent and Sheldon is somewhat more eloquent- not relying on cursing to get his picture across. Don't be fooled, this book is not an easy read due to the subject matter, but read in conjunction with Theo's book you get the "whole" picture. Both men have dealt with the devastation well into their adult lives and let us in on what went on, for them, both on and off the ice.

One of the best and easiest to read autobiographies I have ever read. I would recommend this book to anyone, especially hockey fans. Sheldon Kennedy is very brave for Making his story public.

What a powerful and frightening story. Sheldon tells it unflinchingly; it's almost brutal in its honesty. This book should be required reading for every parent, teacher, police officer; it should just be required reading, period.

I grew up as a big hockey fan of Sheldon Kennedy. I was horrified when I read about what Graham James did as a coach and then after reading this book, it makes me sick to read what all happened and how much affect something like that can have on a young child. It was well written and hard to put down. My brother in law doesn't read and I left him borrower this book over a camping trip and he read the book all day long and finished it in one day. It is very well written.

This book really was an eye opener to me. The story and the way it is written really grabbed me. I would recommend this book to everybody. To my opinion this story is far beyond hockey and even the greatest hockey hater will be moved by what Sheldon Kennedy has to say. People professionally involved with children should be aware of this book. It really gives a great insight in the way the mechanism of child abuse works.
