About the Author
Bobby Orr played for the Boston Bruins from 1966 to 1976, and then two more years for the Chicago Blackhawks. Among other records and honors, he remains the only defenseman to win the Art Ross Trophy league scoring title--twice--and he still holds the record for most points and assists at that position. He also won a record eight consecutive Norris Trophies as the NHL's best defenseman, and three consecutive Hart Trophies as the league's MVP, as well as two Conn Smythe Trophies as the Stanley Cup MVP. Orr was the youngest living player to be inducted in the Hockey Hall of Fame, at thirty-one.
Reviews
Praise for Orr: My Story

"This is a book more about a man than about a hockey player...Epic and noble."--The Atlantic

"A must-read for anyone...who fondly remembers the glory years of the Big Bad Bruins."--The Sun Chronicle

"[Orr] wrote the book...as if he were coaching both his sport and society, delivering lessons in honor and responsibility while he examines hockey at its best and worst."--The Boston Globe

"A gripping personal record: tracing the arc from stunning rookie phenom to defeated hero. The story is moving. It's a book that devotees of sport have to have on their bookshelves."--Winnipeg Free Press
