Adult Non-Fiction: 796.962092 Sande
I witnessed May 10, 1970 live on television: Derek Sanderson fed Bobby Orr with the overtime pass to give the Boston Bruins their first Stanley Cup championship since 1941. Forty-two years later, I’m delighted to read Derek Sanderson’s new book. If you happen to be a die-hard Bruin fan, this book is for you.
Derek really tells it like it was. As a Bruin, he enjoyed a celebrity lifestyle with money, drugs and women. All that, for a shy boy from Niagara Falls!
Bobby Orr wrote the foreword, and Derek expresses his gratitude for Bobby’s support throughout the book. If you’re a hockey fan, or an Orr fan (like me!) you won’t be able to put it down. I give it 5 out of 5.
