Excellent book for hockey lovers! Personally, I love the sport, and I know a lot about this specific era, so for me it was worth it. I especially loved the second part of the book while the part on the history and on the evolution of the rules for the game was excellent. The different strategies in comparing Canadian hockey versus the Russians' style of play was also great. However, if you aren’t a fan of Dryden or if you aren’t old enough to know about the players during his era that he discusses you may find this listen a little boring as Dryden is somewhat dry as a narrator. Nevertheless, I loved the book and was left wanting to hear more!

I came to be a hockey fan later in my life, and quite by accident. I didn't grow up following the sport. Ken Dryden's wonderful book has "filled in the blanks" for me. Not just a wonderful book about hockey, it is also a wonderful book about life. My strongest recommendation!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Any sports-mad friends, but particularly hockey fans, will love this.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The final chapter, reflecting on the author's time in the NHL rather than recounting it, and the obvious fulfilment he feels.
Any additional comments?
From time to time Dryden's reading becomes a little repetitive with his inflection on sentences, but his recount of the characters he played with and against and his reflection upon his time in the game and his views on the game and life surrounding it come across brilliantly. As a sports fan I really enjoyed this book.
