☯ Full Synopsis : "Widely acknowledged as the best hockey book ever written and lauded by Sports Illustrated as one of the Top 10 Sports Books of All Time, The Game is a reflective and thought-provoking look at a life in hockey. Intelligent and insightful, former Montreal Canadiens goalie and former President of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Ken Dryden captures the essence of the sport and what it means to all hockey fans. He gives us vivid and affectionate portraits of the characters — Guy Lafleur, Larry Robinson, Guy Lapointe, Serge Savard, and coach Scotty Bowman among them — that made the Canadiens of the 1970s one of the greatest hockey teams in history. But beyond that, Dryden reflects on life on the road, in the spotlight, and on the ice, offering up a rare inside look at the game of hockey and an incredible personal memoir. This commemorative edition marks the 20th anniversary of The Game's original publication. It includes black and white photography from the Hockey Hall of Fame and a new chapter from the author. Take a journey to the heart and soul of the game with this timeless hockey classic."Article| Ken Dryden| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "First, Ken Dryden articulated our undying love for hockey in The Game, one of the best books ever written on the sport. Then he spoke to our national pride and examined what hockey really means to Canadians in Home Game. Now, in his most daring and powerful work yet, the NHL Hall-of-Famer and former MP issues a challenge to make hockey safer, or risk losing it altogether. Bobby Orr. Gordie Howe. Wayne Gretzky. Whether you are a hockey fan or not, these names mean something to you. They show that a single player can, and often has, changed the game for the better. Hockey is now more skilled and more tactful and, like pro football and basketball, the players are bigger, stronger, and faster. This is the game that Steve Montador gave his life to. Steve was never the fastest, the strongest, or the most skilled player on the ice. He was never a star. But yet, he changed the game as we know it when he was found dead at the age of 35, later diagnosed with CTE-the result of multiple concussions he sustained throughout his playing career. With extensive research and insightful interviews with friends and former players such as Rhett Warrener, Marc Savard, Keith Primeau, as well as with leading figures in the fields of neurobiology and sports concussions, Ken Dryden tells the remarkable life story of an unremarkable journeyman NHL defenseman-a life story that brings to the fore the underlying concerns of the way we play hockey at all levels. In the end, Dryden outlines a plan directed to players, fans, parents, and most of all to decision makers at the NHL, that can make the sport safer for everyone, without sacrificing the integrity of the game."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, Roy MacGregor| 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, Roy MacGregor| Statement ..."
