3.0 out of 5 stars Death of a Dream, Dec 28 2011
This review is from: The Lost Dream: The Story of Mike Danton, David Frost, and a Broken Canadian Family (Hardcover)
I must admit I knew most of the stuff in this book from reading the articles Simmons wrote over the years. To be honest he had to stretch things out to make a whole book as he got no input from the key people in the story, Mike Danton and David Frost. The whole thing is depressing. It paints Frost as as essentiallly a sociopath who not only wanted to control Danton to help him be a better player but also distance him completely from his family. This he has succeeded in and has ruined the lives of Danton and his parents in the process. Frost is clearly a sick person but Simmons acknowledges that he did help Danton and others to be quality hockey players. However he did not help them to be quality human beings.
