"There’s no better way to relive the Games than by reading about them from a different perspective while having some of the brightest (and the not-so-brightest) moments of them expanded on and sometimes even walked through in these pages."

“This is a story of Canadian triumph over adversity that touched us all, told with honesty and humility, and I was proud to be a part of it. From Mr. Furlong and his staff, with their hard work and leadership, to the many volunteers from across Canada, to the great Olympics fans of Vancouver, the province of British Columbia and Canada, we were all proud to hold our heads high and say we were Canadian. Patriot Hearts will touch your soul.”
