Ken Dryden's New Book

Ken Dryden has accomplished a lot in his life. He graduated from Cornell, enjoyed a successful career as a lawyer and businessman, was a three-time Olympic broadcaster and currently is Member of Parliament in Ottawa. Oh yeah, and he had a Hall of Fame hockey career where he won 6 Stanley Cups in 8 seasons and is considered one of the greatest goaltenders in the history of the game.

He also somehow found the time to write 5 books, including The Game, universally regarded as the best hockey book ever written.

Since losing out on a Liberal Party leadership bid in 2006 he has been somewhat quiet, at least on the national political scene. But he's back making headlines, thanks to the release of his new book.


Calm down hockey fans. Dryden's new book has little to do with hockey. Becoming Canada: Our Story, Our Politics, Our Future is very much about politics. Dryden lays out his vision of a new nationalism, a new way of seeing this country that leaves behind the tired cliches of our past and embraces the modern and incredibly diverse country that Canada has become.

"Bah! Politics" you say. Dry stuff, boring even? Say what you wish, but coming from a man who has accomplished so much in his amazing lifetime, this could be Ken Dryden's most important contribution yet.
