Good hockey reads?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know any good books with some interesting stories?

 

I've been hearing a lot about Gretzky's new book but some of the reviews ive read have said that it gets a bit boring.

"The Game" by Ken Dryden

"Net Worth" by Alison Griffiths and David Cruise

Read "The Game". Definitely a good look into what the game of hockey was like in the 70s. 

 

Didn't read "Net Worth", but watched a movie based on the events of the book. Also an interesting topic.

 

If you're interested in a Canuck one, "A Season to Remember" by Grant Kerr was a book about the 2010-11 season. A bit sad to read (seeing as we know the ending), but it's always nice to relive the glory days.

Perhaps not all of the same level as some of the ones listed above, but I recently read John Scott's autobiography and it actually wasn't bad. He had some interesting stories from his youth and a pretty unconventional path to the NHL. He even had a small bit about how idiosyncratic Millsy is from his time in Buffalo.

Has anyone read Ed Willes book The Rebel League: The Short and Unruly Life of the World Hockey Association? I'm fascinated by the WHA.
