Happy Don’t Back Down Paperback Reader

Folks seem to be enjoying Don’t Back Down, the real story of the founding of the NHL’s Ottawa Senators and why big leagues matter.


“If you really want to understand how big league sports expansion works and why it matters, then this extraordinary chronicle by Bruce Firestone, a terrific storyteller, is for you,” David Perry, author of Hiring Greatness I received my copy of your book, Don’t Back Down, yesterday and I couldn’t put it down. It’s been a very long time since I read a 600+ page book in one sitting!” Martin Read, amateur architect, 2:40 am Sunday morning

“Every page of Don’t Back Down is full of fascinating detail and great footnotes and references… it’s a masterpiece and should be a reference book for real estate development as well as Ottawa and league history. Getting this city into the NHL has transformed Canada’s capital and made it a world class place to live and work; even Americans know where Ottawa is now! Big congrats!” Michael Cowpland, Corel Corporation founder, Mitel cofounder, Zim.biz founder

“Don’t Back Down is one of the best books I’ve ever read! It had just the right amount of facts and humor relative to one of the major milestones in Ottawa’s history. It not only gives us the inside scoop on the founding of the modern era Senators and the inner workings of the National Hockey League, it also shows how difficult childhood experiences can sometimes help build determination in us as adults to pull off miracles,” Don Mason
