I just finished this book after reading the "100" things book about the Bruins. The book is great if you want to learn a lot about the Celtics in a short amount of time. The book is easy to read and is setup in quick mini chapters, each one detaling a different aspect of the Celtics from creation to present. I learned a lot of facts and info I didn't know before, such as pre-Celtics Boston teams, who Gene Guarilia is, about the earlier Championship teams, key games in Celtics history, etc.

The reason I couldn't give this book 5 stars is due to the same reasons I couldn't give the Bruins book 5 stars.
Numberous times you will find the same information repeated in different chapters. The same info about the Bob McAdoo trade will be repeated in several chapters, as one example as well as other trades and player info. There is no Glossary which is a big omission in a book like this. Similar to the Bruins book the book is more about things you should know vs do.

However, this book had at least 13 chapters on things you should do (more than the Bs book) however some were just as cheesey. Buy something in the Pro Shop? really? Go to the Boston Beer works, that chapter was basically an advertisement for the restaurant. I would recommend the Sports Grill before the Beer Works, struck me as a really out of place chapter. Another chapter says watch the game at the Fours, again seemed like it crossed over into a restaurant review guide for a bit. The chapter about dining at Ristorante Villa Francesca made absolutely no sense unless the restaurant paid to have a reivew put in the book that had nothing to do with the Celtics or Basketball.

This is a great book! Sometimes books with this kind of a title (100 Things...) can be poorly written or not contain essential/interesting facts. This book is actually very well written and the short chapters about pieces of Celtics history are captivating and interesting. It includes much of what you would expect, but with details you may not know (Auerbach is a must, but there were details in this book that I didn't know), as well as some present-day chapters, such as Rajon Rondo and Ray Allen.

I'm a diehard Boston sports fan, but the Celtics are low on my list of Boston teams/sports, and I greatly enjoyed reading this book. I've also shared it with people who love the sport of basketball but are not necessarily Celtics fans, and they've enjoyed it, too. Bottom line: it includes some lesser-known facts about Celtics history (and present!) written in an engaging way. A great read and you'll learn details about the Celtics...even if you already know a lot about the team and its history.
