telling it like it is never sounded sweeter than from this Canadian hockey player turned coach and fashion expert.

Even with a mild interest in hockey this was a good read. Cherry might not be a great storyteller but he sure is an entertaining one. Some sections of his life felt a little light but I guys that's why he wrote 4 more books.

A great look back into the glory years of Orr, Lafleur and Gretzky, rife with anecdotes. Cherry updated this version to August of 1993, and closes with his worry that his CBC tenure may be coming to an end due to his political incorrectness. 17 years later, at 76, he's still at it.

Thanks Patrick!

As much as I dislike Don Cherry (for many reasons), I enjoyed this book. There's no denying that he has a plethora of stories to tell, and does so in a fairly engaging (if not exactly grammatically correct) manner.

If you love Don Cherry, hockey, and "Hockey Night in Canada", you'll enjoy this fascinating look at Don Cherry's career prior to his stint on HNiC.
