This was a great book. I wouldn't recommend it for everyone, but if you're a fan of hockey (even a slight fan), I would definitely recommend it. This book gave me a wealth of knowledge not only about Art Ross, but about hockey in general. I am a big hockey fan and I learned so much, and it was written in a very entertaining way! If you have no interest in hockey don't waste your time with this book. It was, in my opinion, written for hockey fans and I appreciate it greatly. I enjoyed it immensel ...more

This is a true hockey history book, not just about the man who helped form the Boston Bruins, but also added to the game by inventing a better puck, making a better goal along with nets, implementing rule changes and many more things as well. Some of his ideas were not put into place until decades latter. You get a story of Art Ross’s life from childhood and all of the places he lived and the sports he played. You are shown how good of an athlete he was in all sports not just hockey, but that wh ...more

While this well-researched book by Eric Zweig covers those years when Ross built t

This was a great book. I wouldn't recommend it for everyone, but if you're a fan of hockey (even a slight fan) or a Boston Bruins fan in particular, I would definitely recommend it. This book gave me a wealth of knowledge not only about Art Ross, but about hockey in general and done so in an entertaining way. I am a big hockey fan and I learned so much, without the subject matter sounding dry or textbook like. If you have no interest in hockey don't waste your time with this book. It was, in my ...more

Eric’s first book, Hockey Night in the Dominion of Canada (1992), was an historical novel set in the early days of professional hockey. He has been working with Dan Diamond and Associates, consulting publisher to the National Hockey League, since 1996 ...more
