Stephen J. Harper: A Great Game: The Forgotten Leafs & the Rise of Professional Hockey

November 5th, 2013

For many years Prime Minister Harper has mentioned a small project he works on when the politics is done: a book on the history of hockey. Today, that book, A Great Game: The Forgotten Leafs & the Rise of Professional Hockey hit the bookstores. Looking at the rise of professional hockey in the early years of the 20th century, “A Great Game is about the hockey heroes and hard-boiled businessmen who built the game, and the rise and fall of legendary teams pursuing the Stanley Cup.”

Prime Minister Harper was on Toronto’s Prime Time Sports yesterday to talk about the book.

You can buy the book at the usual bookstores, buy it for your Kindle, iPad or other tablet device or, of course, do what I’m going to do and put it on your Christmas list.
