2.0 étoiles sur 5Very Disappointing14 août 2009
Par John Dandeneau - Publié sur Amazon.com
I had high hopes for this book and it was one of two that I bought to help me quickly learn the basics of hockey so I could understand better what was going on in my Adult Hockey "Learn To Play" class.
Unfortunately, this book is so lacking in specifics, it's essentially useless. I was having a hard time understanding what I didn't like about it until I realized - it's basically a book of summaries with absolutely no substantive details of any level, basic or otherwise. If this was the only book I had bought, I would've been just as clueless as when I started my quest. It wouldn't even have been a helpful guide to just watching a hockey game.
I do not recommend purchasing what amounts to a hockey orientation pamphlet. I gave it two stars because the photography was nice.
Fortunately I had also bought Jack Falla's Hockey - Learn to Play the Modern Way, under the Sports Illustrated brand, and it more than filled the need. It assumed no beginning knowledge of hockey and filled in all the blanks for me. I highly recommend that book.
Good luck to all the other newbies to hockey!

I do not need a book to tell me what to wear, what to eat, or fitness. I wanted a book to explain what is going on as I sit in the stands watching a hockey game. This is not the book for that.

5.0 étoiles sur 5Inline Hockey Skills Modeled on Hockey the NHL Way8 mars 2007
Par M. DeYoung - Publié sur Amazon.com
We bought Hockey the NHL Way because my son plays inline /roller hockey which is similar to ice hockey except it is done on skates. This is an excellent book that simply and succinctly lays out the basics of playing hockey. There are conditioning drills, individual skill drills, how to play as part of a team whether it be on defense or offense, and gives strategies on how to apply these skills as a part of a team. Both beginner and experienced hockey players can benefit from Hockey the NHL Way as it is a good refresher plus builds upon individual skills a player might have already developed. It is a quick read and does not get too technical. Both ice and roller hockey players will improve their game by reading this book.
