The book that hockey fans have been waiting for: the definitive, unauthorized account of the man many say was the greatest player the game has ever seen.

The legend of Bobby Orr is one of the most enduring in all of sports. Even those who have never played the game of hockey know the mystique and tradition surrounding Boston's immortal defenseman. In the glory years of the Original Six, he and Gordy Howe were the Ted Williams and Joe DiMaggio of their sport with equally as rabid a following. In Searching for Bobby Orr, Canada's premier sportswriter gives us a compelling and graceful look at the life and time of Bobby Orr that is also a revealing portrait of the game and a county in transition.

Interesting read. I can't say we find Bobby Orr but the search is worthwhile.

Unless you are old enough to have watched Bobby Orr play, you probably have no recollection of him, other than that iconic photograph of his scoring a Stanley Cup winning goal. This book tries to enlighten us on how remarkable he was and how he reached the status of "Hockey God". Without input from Orr or his inner circle we are still left searching for the real Bobby Orr, but we are enlightened about the life of the legend.
