I bought this book back in 1980 when I was beginning to learn the game. It taught me everything I needed to know to play the game and I feel it actually accelerated my learning curve because it stressed the basics and fundementals of the game. Being a Boston Bruin and a Brad Park fan just made it that much better. Hockey has come a long way in Southern California since the time I bought this book back 1980, more rinks, more leagues and better organized instruction. Nothing compares to starting off young and working your way to becoming a better player through organized hockey, but if you started late like I did, at 18, this book will definitely point you in the right direction and teach you the fundementals in addition to the insight coming from two premier National Hockey League players Brad Park and Rod Gilbert.
