Patrick Roy's biography

Posted 1:58 AM ET | Comments 4
Patrick Roy's biography called "Patrick Roy: Winning, Nothing Else" will be in stores Ocotber 10 this year. The book written by Michel Roy is in English language and consists of 416 pages. The product description reads as follows
In the early 1970s, a young Patrick Roy laced up his hockey skates for the very first time, like thousands of other kids. Thirty years later, he stands in a class by himself as the winningest goaltender of all time. His indomitable will to win and his focus on being the very best brought him four Stanley Cups, three Conn Smythe trophies, three Vezina trophies, and many more honours.

Patrick Roy is every bit the warrior: intensely competitive, full of confidence and pride, and passionate about his sport and his play, sometimes to a fault. Many things have been said and written about him. So many that we sometimes feel we know everything - and yet nothing - about him.

Patrick Roy: Winning, Nothing Else brings to life Patrick Roy's phenomenal career, holding nothing back. A proud father and an impassioned hockey fan, Michel Roy reveals what makes Patrick tick, taking us behind the scenes and into the family life of one of the greatest goaltenders of all time: his will to win; the art of protecting the goal; how he revolutionized goaltending by helping to develop and popularize the butterfly style; his role models and inspiration; his relationships with teachers, teammates, the media, hockey scouts and coaches, agents and players. But Roy holds nothing back as he also reveals the blunders, faults and difficulties of the famous goalie, including the heartbreaking move away from Montreal that nearly broke Patrick Roy's spirit.

A dramatic, lively biography, and a very special testimony to Patrick Roy's brilliant career.

Great book (I've read it in French), and even the biggest Roy fans are sure to find out a few things they didn't know. I just hope the translated version doesn't contain the same mistakes as the French version (Michel Roy referred to the Phoenix Coyotes as the Phoenix Roadrunners, a few names were misspelled, etc).
