This extensive, 500-page book, is written by the famous goaltender's father, Michel Roy.
From the front flap: Patrick Roy reveals the man behind the mask - the hopes and disappointments, triumphs and failures, and the all too human side of a man whom many consider the greatest goaltender in the history of hockey.
The book is very interesting, at least to see from a side of Patrick that no one knows (someone who knew him personally). Unfortunately, the book is written from a father's standpoint: the idea that his son can do no wrong.
Roy was indeed an incredible goaltender, but the way this biography is written, one would think that Patrick was the kindest, gentlest, greatest person who ever played the game.
And we all know that is not always true.
This book is very interesting and it is a pleasure to hear the other side of Roy's career, from the side no one sees; but it is also a pain to have to read what his father seems to claim with a bias.
