Amazon.com: 4.0 out of 5 stars  1 review
4.0 out of 5 stars Not literary, but still interesting Oct. 11 2005
By Jeffrey R. Leinbach - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I picked up this book at a used book store in Saint John, New Brunswick when I was on vacation there. I imagine it's long out of print, but I had to pick it up since I've always been a big fan of Larry Robinson.

This is a typical sports autobiography, not well written (not everyone can be Ken Dryden), but still entertaining. I really enjoyed reading about the Canadiens teams of the '70s and '80s and Robinson was one of the key contributors to those teams. Not many players have won six Stanley Cups, but he is one of the few, so we get to hear what it was like from a first-person perspective. I also enjoyed reading about some of the Canadiens then-future stars like Patrick Roy and Chris Chelios to see what a veteran teammate thought of them at the beginning of their careers. Funny to read about Patrick Roy being initially inconsistent, although Robinson correctly predicted that he would be in the same class as Grant Fuhr and Billy Smith if he ironed out his inconsistency.

So for writing skill, this is probably only three stars, but for content I'd call it four or five stars and that's why my final rating is four stars.
