I must first let it be known that I would never sit down and read a 300 page book about sports cover to cover let alone any other book, and I didn't do that with this one. I just don't consider myself a "reader" unless you count the sports page. I own a copy of Buker's first book "Total Penguins" which is more like an encyclopedia or reference manual about the Penguins than anything else so I thought I would try this book being that I consider myself a big Pittsburgh Penguins fan.

It is fantastic. The book covers everything from the beginning to Crosby's latest exploits. It has small 2-3 page crazy, weird stories and other stuff about the Penguins. Some of the stuff I have heard rumors of like the Stanley Cup at the bottom of Mario Lemieux's swimming pool and about the only player other than Mario to have his number retired by the Penguins. It's nice to know what really happened.

I find myself saying "wow, I didn't know that" just about every time I pick it up and have also found myself telling Penguin fan friends stories that I have read in it. I would recommend this and have recommended it to all my friends who love Pittsburgh hockey. The book is easy to pick up, get satisfaction from reading a great short story then put down again. Over and over.

I try to read at least 1-2 entries while I'm doing my business. I've already read the book cover to cover numerous times so far. If you're a Penguins fan, whether seasoned or new, you need this.

I found some of the information pretty interesting but if you are any kind of hockey fan (Pens or other) you should already know most of the more current "facts". However, the author seems to be quite repetitive with the information. Maybe just to fill up pages? Kinda like something we did in school when you had to have the 500 word essay that you only had 485 words for. I have not actually finished the book yet. Needed a break from it. Will pick through the rest of it at some point. I'm sure before I die.

A true must have for Pittsburgh Penguin fans. Lots of facts, some you have never heard of before while others will bring back memories of players and games past.
