Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling 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.

Extremely enjoyable

Must read/listen for any hockey fan. I learned quite a bit. Mr. Dryden did some amazing research into this book. Lots of information , some of it is troubling. Ken Dryden narrating the book makes it even more enjoyable.

insightful

Hockey fans will love this book. Everyone who reads this will learn about the passion and motivation that drives the players. You will also see that the league is working to prevent brain injury. Hopefully anyone who has assumptions about the sport will read this.
