|From The Publisher*||Home Game delves into hockey in all its incarnations, from life in a small hockey community and the dreams of amateurs determined to reach the NHL to the reminiscences of players involved in the 1972 Canada-Soviet series. By exploring hockey's significance to our nation, Dryden and MacGregor help to define what it means to be Canadian.|
|Review Quote*||"The closest thing the game has to a literary masterpiece."|
"This book will be the gauge against which future [sports books] will be measured.…And it's not just a hockey book; it's a book about Canadians and what makes us tick."
"The tale of hockey is told like never before. This is the hockey book of the decade, if not the century."
–Telegraph-Journal (Saint John)
"Dryden and MacGregor have penned a tremendous read.…you'll be moved to take up skating again. Fans of hockey won't be disappointed and fans of Canadiana shouldn't miss it."
"Go out right now and buy this book."
