A great book! i am not a great hockey fan but I read the book as Paul Henderson is the grandfather of students I teach. The book was great..... I especially enjoyed the sharing of his personal, as opposed to hockey journey. Easy to read, I laughed and cried..... Great man! He spoke at one of our assemblies, and he touched my heart.
