About the Author

Shawna Richer of the Globe and Mail has had the exclusive assignment of following Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins during Crosby's rookie season. Prior to this assignment she was the Globe's Atlantic bureau chief, based in Halifax, where she first met and interviewed the Crosby family. She is based in Pittsburgh, while she follows Sidney's rookie year.


"...a riveting documentary of a player who transcends his sport."
-- Montreal Gazette

" an excellent inside look at Cole Harbour's hockey sensation during his first year ...."
-- The Chronicle Herald "His first NHL season, her first book: Sidney Crosby and Shawna Richer both had splendid years. The Globe and Mail writer captures Crosby's rookie year in Pittsburgh, dripping with narrative and nuance, with the practiced eye of a seasoned foreign correspondent."
-- Michael Farber, Sports Illustrated "Sidney Crosby was never going to be just another hockey player, and The Rookie isn't just another hockey book. Thanks to Shawna Richer's terrific eyes and ears -- as well as her deft touch around a keyboard -- we're treated to an insider's view not only of one of the game's future stars, but of the game itself. And from here, both look pretty damn good."
-- Chris Jones, Esquire Magazine

"The most interesting assignment of the year in sports journalism -- wall-to-wall coverage of Penguins rookie phenom Sidney Crosby."
-- Sports Illustrated "If we really wanted to penetrate the life and times of a great player, and through him understand hockey . . . we had to be there for all those serendipitous moments of meaning."
-- Edward Greenspon, Globe and Mail "Leave it to two Atlantic Canadians to be the stars of a book: Sidney Crosby the athlete, Shawna Richer the gifted writer. To paraphrase Roy MacGregor's words in the forward which rung true throughout: Shawna has an ability to draw an athlete out to reveal inner thoughts. Something the rest of us can only envy. A wonderful documentation of what happened on the ice and what went on the head of this dedicated player at the rink and away from it."
--Mike Emrick, NHL on NBC
