The Game (Ken Dryden)


The Game (Ken Dryden)

"The Game" is a book written in 1983 by former ice hockey goaltender, Ken Dryden. The book is a non-fiction account of the 1979 Montreal Canadiens, detailing what it is like to be a professional hockey player. The book describes the pressures of being a goaltender in the NHL, and gives readers a behind-the-scenes look at a team that would eventually win the Stanley Cup.

On a higher level, Dryden writes with intelligence and insight about the life of an athlete coping with the demands of a demanding sport and reconciling these pressures with life outside the arena. "The Game" remains one of the more articulate memoirs written by a professional athlete.
