No idea, but I have the original version, and it's a hell of a book.

Is it written like a novel or more like a chronological biography?

At the launch someone from the publishing house said that they hoped to have an English version out by February. More recently I read that it was due out "in the spring".

Written by Mario Leclerc in close collaboration with Demers. Many interviews over a period of time. Also spoke with a couple dozen people who knew and/or worked with him over the years. 26 chapters. Also contains 26 letters that Demers has composed addressed to various people who had an influence on his life. Guess he tells some of them what he's wanted to for many years.

More than simply a hockey book or only of local interest. Should do very well in English, not only in the rest of Canada but in a lot of American hockey markets.
