Here's more from the publisher, Fitzhenry and Whiteside:

From his childhood in the hard-scrabble Ontario north, to the rinks of St. Michael's College School in Toronto, to the NHL and entrepreneurial success, Tim Horton worked hard-and played hard-his entire life. The tough defenseman with the bullet-hard slapshot helped the Leafs to win four Stanley Cups. Before his tragic and untimely death in a car accident at the age of 44, he also established a chain of donut shops that has become an enduring Canadian icon. Tim Horton's story of hard work and perseverance will inspire young hockey players and donut fans alike.

In full colour with archival photographs, statistics, and illustrations throughout.
