This book was great it included superb imagery and excellent writing. The author makes the reader feel that he is there at the time, watching the great hockey stars play. It goes into the reasons why the players were great. The problem is, if a person were to not know what the stories were and who the people are, they might not understand why this is such a great book. The book has great pictures, which are all high-quality and huge, like you were right on the ice when it happened. I became emot ...more

I read, or rather looked, at this book for a clear purpose: The idea of bringing several decades of the very best photography of one single sport together is certainly great for hockey fans, but equally stunning for photographers. The different approach the photographers have in this tome is inspiring in many ways and can change ideas of how to approach and document the participants, but much more so the drama and tension of a sport and how to document this in a still.

Back to when the NHL started this book holds all the memories from years ago. Did you know pucks were once wooden? No helmets? This book gives you tons of interesting facts that can teach a lot more about the game of hockey. You might just feel like watching hockey and see the many changes over the years. Go read it!

I picked up this book because it was lying around in my house, but it turned out alot better than I thought it would!

I finished it because it was interesting enough to keep me readin

This is a fascinating hockey book. It is not meant to be read in a single setting but to be more of a coffee table book you can refer to and peruse periodically. The pictures alone make this one completely worth it! Any hockey fan would enjoy this and it would make a great Xmas or Bday gift for any age fan!
