"A great read...sure was a lot of fun reliving those glorious days...well done Greg!" --Ken Morrow (Islanders' defenseman from 1980-1989, member of gold medal-winning 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team, member of the United States Hockey Hall of Fame)
"Loved it - the first person accounts by the players and management brought me right back to a very special time." --Bob Lorimer (Islanders defenseman from 1976-1981)
"A coming of age book not only for the young New York Islanders, but for the Long Island region itself. The first person accounts create an interesting and in-depth look at the team's growth and glory during the Islanders dynasty years." --Bruce Bennett (NHL photographer)
"Growing up on Long Island and having our very own championship team really gave us an identity. This book captures all of those great moments for those of us who grew up with the Islanders. The good and the bad, it's all in this book." --Gary "Baba Booey" Dell'Abate (Howard Stern Show producer, author of They Call Me Baba Booey, longtime Islanders fan)
"Prato dives in headfirst to create an extraordinarily thorough and exhaustively researched book that puts you inside the locker room and out on the ice...if you're a hockey fan and want to know what made the Islanders so great, read this." --Steve Rosen, Curledup.com
"An excellent book that tells the story of the players and staff who brought four Stanley Cups to Long Island, in their own words." --Kevin Schultz, Islanderspointblank.com
"I've read a lot of New York Islanders books. This is the definitive history of the dynasty." --Lighthouse Hockey website
"I am recommending that any Islander fan take the time to read this book, especially if you are a younger fan who may not be aware of the grand history of the Islander organization. Greg Prato did a lot of research, and the stories and recollections of many of the guys who played on the teams or were involved with them makes it a fascinating and entertaining read." --John Panarese, Islestalk.com --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Prato received very candid interviews with the men who molded the dynasty and allowed them to create a stunning oral history of the franchise. This is a must-have for Islanders fans who remember Germain Gagnon's first hat trick, Denis Potvin's rookie season, Bryan Trottier's five-point game in his Coliseum debut and Mike Bossy's charge toward 50 in 50.
