A Globe and Mail Best Book

From the bestselling author and Hall of Famer Ken Dryden, this is the story of NHLer Steve Montador--who was diagnosed with CTE after his death in 2015--the remarkable evolution of hockey itself, and a passionate prescriptive to counter its greatest risk in the future: head injuries.

Ken Dryden's The Game is acknowledged as the best book about hockey, and one of the best books about sports ever written. Then came Home Game (with Roy MacGregor), also a major TV-series, in which he explored hockey's significance and what it means to Canada and Canadians. Now, in his most powerful and important book yet, Game Change , Ken Dryden tells the riveting story of one player's life, examines the intersection between science and sport, and expertly documents the progression of the game of hockey--where it began, how it got to where it is, where it can go from here and, just as exciting to play and watch, how it can get there.

An important book with a message that needs implementing before more lives are wasted. There should be no need for goons or head hits in such a wonderful game. I hope Dryden and other credible advocates relentlessly pursue Bettman until he does the right thing.
