Boys of Winter: The Untold Story of a Coach, a Dream, and the 1980 U. S. Olympic Hockey Team
Wayne Coffey

January 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. In this well-written and thoroughly researched story of the 1980 Olympic gold-medal winning hockey team, New York Daily News sportswriter Coffey does much more than simply evoke memories. Expertly using coach Herb Brooks (who died last year in an auto accident) as his focal point, Coffey shows how Brooks, a devoted student of the game, used both psychological tactics and a groundbreaking system predicated on speed and constant motion to defeat the Soviets, a team of highly trained, older and bigger professionals who had dominated the international competition for decades. Over the years, this story of the Americans' victory has become larger than life, replete with drama and drenched in patriotic themes. Coffey's greatest achievement is that his narrative never sinks into melodrama. He captures...

Book Review
Like its teammates in the Dummies series, Hockey for Dummies is cleverly organized and clearly focused, geared to both fans and players. It is filled with fun stuff such as lists of the 10 best things about the game, the 10 best players, the 10 best teams, and, given even a novice's inability to mistake hockey for Zen, the 10 best hitters. Hockey for Dummies also contains plenty of good, practical advice: Wayne Gretzky offers a clinic on passing, Mark Messier hosts one on face-offs, Brian Leetch counsels players in clinics on defense, and Ron Hextall teaches goaltending. Authors John Davidson and John Steinbreder explain rules, discuss equipment, and detail strategies. They even give pointers on how best to appreciate the game on television. It seems the only thing missing from Hockey for Dummies is a...

Eleven Seconds: A Story of Tragedy, Courage, & Triumph
Travis Roy
0446521884
January 1998
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
Within the 11 seconds that inspired this memoir, Travis Roy realized his dream, then smashed into his nightmare. On an October night in 1995, Roy, a talented young hockey player, skated onto the ice for his varsity debut with Boston University. Eleven fateful seconds later, he was paralyzed from the neck down. Aided by the sure touch of Sports Illustrated hockey writer E.M. Swift, Roy's moving account of his accident and his rehabilitation--confined to a wheelchair, he's gotten some use of his right arm back--avoids the maudlin. Instead, Eleven Seconds is filled with grit, hope, humor, and a thoughtful young man's introspection on the meaning of sports and the adjustments that follow when the ability to play them is taken away.

From Publishers Weekly
As a 1998 gold medalist in women's hockey, one of the NCAA's top scholar-athletes during the 2003–2004 school year and the first female nongoalie to play in a men's professional hockey league in 2005 with the Tulsa Oilers, Ruggiero is in an excellent position to comment on the current state of women's hockey. While she touches on some of the bigger gender-based problems facing women in the predominantly male sport, this is basically a straightforward account of her life from her introduction to hockey at age seven in not-so-hockey-friendly California through her experiences as a scholarship winner and top athlete at Connecticut's Choate Rosemary Hall prep school and later at Harvard to her post-Olympic pursuit of a professional career playing hockey. The best sections are those concerning Ruggiero's...
