Not very good at showing you cool stuff he did different from others to be successful, stuff where you would say to yourself "In certain situations I could use that", or "I wish I would have thought of that"

Tough to read, WAY too many useless stats. If you want a recap of the transactions, recaps, records from the habs/wings/blues from the last 40 years, you will like this book. Couldn't finish it. No flow, not as interesting as I hoped.

Basically only stats. Not enough about the man himself.
