The Pat Burns StoryBook - 2012
The first major biography, by a celebrated journalist, of this iconic and controversial hockey legend. DiManno reveals a man of contradictions - gruff and crude, bullying and sentimental, and easily wounded. She shows, moreover, a man of hockey. The Burns who rode motorcycles, dressed like a cowboy, and sweet-talked the ladies was, says DiManno, a self-creation. His one indisputable, true talent was for coaching hockey. He was a pure coach.
