A tribute to the larger than life story of a hockey legend. Pat Quinn made a few enemies over the years, but there was no one who didn't respect the tough working-class kid who had fought his way to the very top of the hockey world. In the end, the player who would never even have dreamed of being inducted into the Hall of Fame was the chair of the Hall's selection committee. That is Quinn's story: an underdog who succeeded so completely that his legacy has become the standard by which others are judged. Told by a bestselling author and supported by the Quinn family and network of friends, "Quinn" is the definitive account of one of the game's biggest personalities and most storied lives.

his book was exceptional and a must read for any hockey fan. I actually jumped on the Canucks bandwagon during the storied Quinn years and that magical run in 93-94. (Lord, who will ever forget "the save"?) All this and more is detailed in this book, a look into the mythology of Pat Quinn. This man had an amazing career and reinvented himself more times than Madonna. He is a hero to all Canadian hockey fans and getting an insight into this man was such a privilege.

Mr. Robson has written an excellent overview of not only a Hockey legend (warts & all) , but also covered most of the factors that have changed the game in the past 40 years
