In the process, he became Brooks’ confidant and sometimes his critic. Now, for the first time, Gilbert offers impossibly colorful quotes issued by Brooks through the years, recently gathered anecdotes and reflections from former players and colleagues, and his own first-person perspective to illuminate the people, experiences, and even the specific game situations that shaped Brooks’ philosophies and methods. The result is a thoroughly unique and at times rollicking portrait of the man some have called the greatest hockey coach ever.
