Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! Don Cherry is as straight up and honest as they come. I love watching him and his books are great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good book I bought this book for my son to read. He enjoyed it & said that he was surprised at how honest Don Cherry was in this book & how true most of what he had to say about hockey really was. He even talked his grandfather who has an adamant dislike for Don Cherry into reading it.
