Summary, etc.: Bobby Orr is often referred to as the greatest ever to play the game of hockey. From 1966 through the mid-seventies, no defenseman had ever played the way he did, or received so many trophies, or set so many records, several of which still stand today. Now, Orr talks about what inspired him, what drove him, what it was like for a shy small-town kid to suddenly land in the full glare of the media, what it was like when the agent he regarded as a brother betrayed him and left him in financial ruin, and what he thinks of the game of hockey today. --Adapted from publisher description.
