Product description

Review

"An extraordinary book about an extraordinary week. Superb."
—Joseph Boyden
 
"Bidini is a terrific writer - funny, clever, passionate. . . . Part history lesson, part travelogue, part self-examination, part play-by-play and a whole lot of reminiscing... hilarious..." -- Dave Fuller, Toronto Sun
 
"We want to be Dave Bidini when we grow up."
Toronto Star
 
"Dave Bidini is a heck of a good writer. His prose is almost conversational, creating an effect like a guy sitting at a bar telling you a good story, without the drunken rambling usually associated with such a fellow."
Globe and Mail


"I could read Dave Bidini all day. And I have."
—Steve Rushin, Sports Illustrated
