Don Cherry's Hockey Stories and Stuff Paperback – October 27, 2009

"Never one to mix words, [Don] Cherry provides an analysis that transcends the reporting found in printed dailies, websites, and typical television broadcasts. That is what he is most often criticized for: not being like everyone else. Cherry provides poignant analysis about the game of hockey that escapes most other commentators. He endeavours to elucidate the small moments within a game that may appear inconsequential, but are integral to the outcome: a failure to clear the zone, a player shying away from a check, a poor line change. This is where Cherry is most valuable as a commentator. As a former coach, one who found great success, he is able to give viewers insights unlike anyone else."
—Ian Smart, 411mania.com
“Don Cherry in print sounds just like Don Cherry over the air…. If you like Cherry, you’ll like this.”

About the Author
Twenty-five years into Don Cherry's hockey career, a chance appearance on Hockey Night in Canada impressed CBC officials enough for them to create a platform for the provocative ex-player and coach, "Coach's Corner." And the rest is history. Don Cherry's success extends to a line of popular DVDs, a chain of restaurants, and a syndicated radio show. In addition to these ventures he has spent the past few years raising funds for Rose Cherry's Home for Kids, a hospice for terminally ill children named after his beloved late wife, who died of cancer in June 1997. Don Cherry has passionately campaigned for the Milton, Ontario, hospice both on and off the air.
Al Strachan, a former columnist with the Toronto Sun, The Globe and Mail and The Montreal Gazette, regularly appears on Hockey Night in Canada and The Score. He can be heard on Sirius Radio. Strachan has been writing about hockey and hanging out with NHL players, coaches, general managers, and owners for thirty-five years. He lives in Toronto and St. Andrews, New Brunswick.

Right in the beginning of this book, he explains to the reader that he's going to keep the same approach. When you read this book, it's like Cherry talking to you right from the TV screen 10 feet away. In case kids want to read the book, he says, he won't use profanity - so you can give this to your children. I appreciated that.
As someone old enough to know most of the names Cherry mentions in this book, I thoroughly enjoying hearing about these guys.....and about him. It's just wonderful stuff. Don't look for a cohesive story; that's not Don, but it's as entertaining as listening to him.
The only disappointment is that he never said how he got the nickname "Grapes." If someone knows, please write me!
