Bobby Orr releasing a memoir in October

Figured some folks here might be interested in reading it when it comes out.

According to Tuesday's announcement by Putnam, Orr will reflect on his remarkable career and on his angry break from his former agent and close friend Alan Eagleson.

He's avoided & refused to talk much about his career publicly, though there were some acrimonious statements made to a reporter well over a decade now pursuant to Eagleson's donation to York University in Toronto and the naming of a medical research facility after the latter (which was rescinded & returned by York, and Im sure shrinks would have plenty to say about that one). Several unauthorised biographies appearing over the years, the most recent being Stephen Brunts' In Search of Bobby Orr which without his participation did contain a fair amount of off the mark speculation. This will shed a lot more light on what went down from his perspective.

Pumped, I've read every book about him, so I'll be picking this up day one.

I did enjoy Searching for Bobby Orr, probably re-read it prior to this release so a fresh comparison can be made.

"My Game" by Orr and Mark Mulvoy is a wonderful book, highly recommend it. It was released in the early 70's, included interesting biographical content and some great insight into how the game (should be) played.
