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.

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.
