Product Description


"Never one to mix words, [Don] Cherry provides an analysis that transcends the reporting found in printed dailies, websites, and typical television broadcasts. That is what he is most often criticized for: not being like everyone else. Cherry provides poignant analysis about the game of hockey that escapes most other commentators. He endeavours to elucidate the small moments within a game that may appear inconsequential, but are integral to the outcome: a failure to clear the zone, a player shying away from a check, a poor line change. This is where Cherry is most valuable as a commentator. As a former coach, one who found great success, he is able to give viewers insights unlike anyone else."
—Ian Smart,

“Don Cherry in print sounds just like Don Cherry over the air…. If you like Cherry, you’ll like this.”
Toronto Star

From the Hardcover edition.

About the Author

Twenty-five years into Don Cherry's hockey career, a chance appearance on Hockey Night in Canada impressed CBC officials enough for them to create a platform for the provocative ex-player and coach, "Coach's Corner." And the rest is history. Don Cherry's success extends to a line of popular DVDs, a chain of restaurants, and a syndicated radio show. In addition to these ventures he has spent the past few years raising funds for Rose Cherry's Home for Kids, a hospice for terminally ill children named after his beloved late wife, who died of cancer in June 1997. Don Cherry has passionately campaigned for the Milton, Ontario, hospice both on and off the air.

Al Strachan, a former columnist with the Toronto Sun, The Globe and Mail and The Montreal Gazette, regularly appears on Hockey Night in Canada and The Score. He can be heard on Sirius Radio. Strachan has been writing about hockey and hanging out with NHL players, coaches, general managers, and owners for thirty-five years. He lives in Toronto and St. Andrews, New Brunswick.

Format: Hardcover
I enjoyed many of the stories Grapes has to tell here, how could you not with the type of personality he has? I wish there was more flow to how they are told though. There is no real sense of organization when there very well could be. Strachan could have put some more effort into it I think. I realize the basis for the book is a bunch of short blurbs and stories and that makes it hard for there to be flow to it, but I really think it could have been better organized.

Format: Hardcover
I beg to differ from the above comments about organization. Don Cherry makes it very clear at the start of the book that he wanted it to be a collection of stories and memories, told in such a way that it would be like Don was sitting beside you explaining them in his own words. This book does just that. I really felt it was an authentic sitdown with one of hockeys greatest characters, and his ramblings of not quite english not quite any language style of grammar, really gave it that Don Cherry feel.

I flew through the book in about 2 sittings, and I wish that I had taken my time.

If you are a good old Canadian hockey fan, and love Grapes, you will enjoy this book. Its a beauty.

I enjoyed Don's original book "Grapes" more. Personally I find his fractured english language can be a bit distracting on the printed page. However this book gets pretty good when it gets rolling. Really just a collection of short memories of his past in hockey. Some are pretty good though. However if you want a really good hockey book go read "Net Worth" now!
