☯ Full Synopsis : "Shortlisted for the BC National Award for Canadian Non-Fiction A Globe and Mail Best Book From the bestselling author and Hall of Famer Ken Dryden, this is the story of NHLer Steve Montador--who was diagnosed with CTE after his death in 2015--the remarkable evolution of hockey itself, and a passionate prescriptive to counter its greatest risk in the future: head injuries. Ken Dryden's The Game is acknowledged as the best book about hockey, and one of the best books about sports ever written. Then came Home Game (with Roy MacGregor), also a major TV-series, in which he explored hockey's significance and what it means to Canada and Canadians. Now, in his most powerful and important book yet, Game Change, Ken Dryden tells the riveting story of one player's life, examines the intersection between science and sport, and expertly documents the progression of the game of hockey--where it began, how it got to where it is, where it can go from here and, just as exciting to play and watch, how it can get there."Article| Ken Dryden| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "In October 1983 Ken Dryden gave us what was called the best non-fiction book ever written about hockey - "The Game." In that same month Roy MacGregor published what was hailed as the best novel ever written about hockey - "The Last Season." In 1989 these two writers teamed up to write another extraordinary book: inspired by Ken Dryden's major CBC-TV series on hockey, "Home Game" takes us all the way from street hockey to the showdowns between Canada and the Soviets. On publication, "Home Game" shot to the top of the bestseller lists, establishing itself as must reading for every hockey fan. Not only was this lavish book with over 95 full-colour photographs popular among ordinary Canadians: book reviewers loved it."Article| Ken Dryden| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "In this passionate, thought-provoking vision for Canada, Ken Dryden argues that we have paid a price for having the wrong sense of ourselves as a country. The old definition of Canada – genial but sometimes too self-deprecating and ambition-killing – is no longer the real story. Through recent global events such as Barack Obama’s election and first year in office; the climate conference in Copenhagen; and even the 2010 Winter Olympics, Dryden explores the clash between politics and story, and the importance of a nation finding its true narrative in order to thrive. By tracing the ups and downs in contemporary Canadian politics, from the Liberal leadership race to Stephen Harper’s Conservative minority governments, Michael Ignatieff’s appointment as Opposition leader, and prorogation, Ken Dryden presciently identifies the obstacles facing Canada. He observes a sea change taking place among Canadians, who want something more for their country. The ambition of Canada’s policies and the nature of our politics will not change, Dryden says, until we conceive of a new story for the nation. Becoming Canada is at once a celebration of Canada and a timely, ardent rallying cry to all Canadians to build upon Canada’s unique place in the world. It is certain to inspire new conversations about our Canada’s identity at home and abroad."Article| Ken Dryden| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Everyone talks about our schools. Newspaper editorials worry about slipping educational standards. Business complains about poor training for the work force. Television programs talk about violence in school halls. Educational reports study problems and issue strategic documents. Parents attend parent-teacher interviews twice a year. Yet nobody – except for the teachers and the kids – seems to know what really goes on there. Ken Dryden decided to find out. From September 1993 until June 1994, he attended a high school, folding his 6'4" frame as inconspicuously as possible into a seat at the back of the room, moving from class to class when the bell rang. He watched, while everyone got used to his presence, and he took notes. The result is a documentary about the life of a typical Canadian school – in this case a Mississauga, Ontario, high school with a wide range of students drawn from sixty countries. We follow a number of these students, getting to know a dozen of them well, and we follow half a dozen teachers, including the principal. We see the ups and downs in the students’ academic lives, and – like the teachers – we understand much more when the parents come for interviews. We come to care for all of them and understand better a system that can only punish kids who skip class by suspending them, and that can’t fire bad teachers. We are taken inside the teachers’ world, too. We follow them as they prepare for class, watch them teach, sympathize when they lose their temper at someone who strolls in fifteen minutes late, or when they have to give a student who really tried hard a mark of zero. The book clearly demonstrates that our schools are different than we think, and prone to suffer from the world’s problems and complications. Homework stands no chance set against the fast money of an evening job. But, as always, teachers do well teaching kids like them who want to learn – and not so well with the average kids, the ones beyond the front row. In this intimate look at the way a school really works, Ken Dryden tackles what he sees as the education debate’s retreat to a safe, unthinking – and ultimately useless – black and white ground of issues and policies at the expense of people. Ultimately he discovers that good teachers teach people and not just subjects. As gripping as a fine novel,In Schoolis an exciting achievement – a thought-provoking look at our schools and our society, and at how we can make them better."Article| Ken Dryden| Statement ..."

Excerpt: Kenneth Wayne "Ken" Dryden, PC, MP (born August 8, 1947) is a Canadian politician, lawyer, businessman, author, and former NHL goaltender. Dryden is married with two children and two grandchildren and is a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame. Dryden was born in Hamilton, Ontario, the son of Murray and Margaret Dryden and brother of Dave Dryden, also an NHL goaltender. Dryden was raised in Islington-City Centre West (then just outside Toronto) and Boston traded Dryden to the Montreal Canadiens, along with Alex Campbell, for Paul Reid and Guy Allen, whom the Bruins highly valued. Dryden was actually informed by his agent that he had been drafted by the Canadiens, and did not find out he had originally been a Bruin until the mid-1970s. Rather than play in Montreal, Dryden pursued a Bachelor of Arts degree at Cornell University, where he also played hockey until his graduation in 1969. At Cornell, Dryden led his team, the Cornell Big Red, to the 1967 National Collegiate Athletic Association championship and three consecutive ECAC tournament championships under coach Ned Harkness, a legendary coach of hockey and lacrosse, winning 76 of his 81 starts (76-4-1) after redshirting his freshman year, graduating in 1969. He also was a member of the Canadian amateur national team at the 1969 Ice Hockey World Championship tournament in Stockholm. Dryden made his NHL debut ..."Article| Books LLC| Statement ..."
