Straight Up And Personal: The World According To Grapes

by Don Cherry

Doubleday Canada | November 4, 2014 | Hardcover

Straight Up And Personal: The World According To Grapes is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
There's no holding him back.
     Known for his opinions--and unabashed expression of them--Don Cherry has been causing debate for decades. Topics on "Coach's Corner" sometimes veer away from sports and on to other matters that are near and dear to Cherry's heart: the war in Afghanistan and politics, among many others.
     In Straight Up and Personal, Cherry shares his thoughts on a broader range of issues than he ever has before. He shares some of his personal experiences on and off the ice, and offers the lessons he's learned along the way. This is Don Cherry: straight up and personal.

Reviews

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic Grapes! If you like Don Cherry, or even if you don't, this book will entertain. The book gives an insight into the background of Coach's Corner, his trip to the Middle East, and other. A good read.

About the Author

A high school dropout from Kingston, Ontario, DON CHERRY laced up with the American Hockey League's Hershey Bears in 1954 to begin what would be nearly a two-decade playing career. The 20-year-old rookie would jump to a number of minor league teams in the United States and Canada over the course of his 16 years on the ice, bringing his young family with him on more than 50 moves. After being fired from his role as Coach of the Boston Bruins in 1979 Cherry went on to coach the Colorado Rockies for one unsuccessful season. A chance appearance on Hockey Night in Canada impressed CBC officials enough for them to create a platform for the bombastic ex-player and coach. "Coach's Corner" would go on to court both controversy and high ratings, as hockey fans rushed to their televisions to take in his singular mix of game analysis, cultural commentary and playful parrying with host Ron MacLean. Cherry has parlayed his broadcast success into a line of popular videos, a chain of restaurants, a syndicated radio show and lucrative endorsements. 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 wife, who died of cancer in June 1997, Don Cherry has passionately campaigned for the Milton, Ontario, hospice.
