"It's hard to believe Fleury survived his own life." ' The Globe and Mail Theo Fleury, who had walked away from hockey in 2003, leaving millions of dollars on the table and thousands of fans asking why, was determined to redeem himself. But how' With a comeback. Six years after his last NHL game, at age 41, weighing 215 pounds and with 25 per cent body fat, he had only seven months to get ready for the Calgary Flames training camp. His chance for redemption came in a pre-season game against the New York Islanders. The score was 4'4 going into a shootout when his coach leaned over and told him, "You're up next." In this fully up-to-date edition of Playing with Fire, Fleury gives readers the inside story on how his life has changed since this book was first published. Along with the original, fearlessly honest tale that captivated the nation, he now chronicles his NHL comeback. In the same frank, fast-paced style that made his book a blockbuster, Fleury shares fascinating new stories about life as a 41-year-old rookie, as an author on the road, and as a man in the spotlight following the disturbing news that his former coach Graham James had been pardoned for his horrific crimes. Playing with Fire is Theo Fleury's journey to hell and back, a book no one can put down or will ever forget. Finalist for the 2010 CBA Libris Award for Non-fiction Book of the Year Hockey Book of the Year (Denver Post)
The fall and rise of Theo Fleury( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

He was a physical lightweight in a heavyweight league. Against all odds, Theo Fleury established himself as a major star in the National Hockey League. In his rookie year, he helped the Calgary Flames win the Stanley Cup and went on to rack up Hall of Fame stats. But, through it all, he was as troubled as he was talented and tough. The fifth estate tells Fleury's remarkable story, the staggering fall from grace that cost him millions of dollars, his family and almost, his life. Fleury talks about how he struggled back from the brink of despair to become clean and sober and ready to help others. He candidly discusses the dark issues that haunted him during the glory years, including the sexual abuse he experienced as a teenager at the hand of the now notorious junior hockey coach, Graham James. Behind Fleury's public bravado was a man struggling with addictions to alcohol, drugs and sex. His candid and unsentimental recounting of those years and, finally, his vanquishing of his demons, will be an inspiration to many, a cautionary tale for others
