A much slighter volume than Bacon's The Greatest Comeback. This Dryden's personal memories of the Series so learn how he felt as the training camp approached and then his being picked to play game one. Includes black & white and colour photos of game moments, being a tourist in Moscow and of the cards and posters sent to him and the team.

One addition is his description of the team reunions including his many meetings with Russian players who have become friends.

Where were you when Paul Henderson scored the winning goal of the Canada/Soviet hockey series on September 28, 1972? If you are 55 or older, you probably know exactly where you were. I do.

Ken Dryden played goal in that winning game and has written a personal story about how it felt being part of Team Canada. This isn't a play-by-play of the statistics of the series. It's a very moving account of what the series meant to Mr. Dryden and to Canadians in general. Out of a population of 22 million, 16 million of us watched the final game of the series. The author surprisingly says that, in some way, in misses having been one of us watching and living the experience as fans.

Beautiful photographs and an account of what the series meant, and how it changed hockey. This book made me feel like I was there -- again.

Rated one of the best sports books ever? Not sure why. Never got interested. Story jumps around a bit. Maybe I'm just not a big enough hockey guy. Never found it interesting. Abandoned at page 120 or so.Never had much interesting to say.
