Editorial Reviews

Review

Readers will zip through chapters looking to see how dumb the next idea is. More than anything, Glow Pucks & 10 Cent Beer will spark debate among fans on what is truly moronic in the world of sports. (Salt Lake Tribune)

You know what this book is, right? Great travel reading, or, if you don't travel, great bathroom reading. In other words, this book is among the 101 best ideas in sports. (Jerry Greene The Orlando Sentinel)

This book is highly amusing, and I read it cover-to-cover really quickly. This is a great gift for sports fans, even if they're not the type that watches SportsCenter every day.

Greg doesn't mince any words or speak delicately about how bad these ideas were. His grasp on sports history is truly amazing. All of the ideas my friends guessed were in the book were there, plus many more we'd never even heard of.

The writing is excellent, and I hope to see more from Greg soon.

Okay, I admit that I read as little of this book as "Swift", but if he's entitled to write a review, then so am I.

Greg Wyshynski Esq is the preeminent hockey writer in North America, and his plucky prose and sharp wit will entertain as well as educate you. I recommend this book to every living being on the face of the Earth or even New Earth.

"Glow Pucks" is a nice concise history of some of sports more..."colorful" ideas, and the ensuing mayhem. Great for fans of Kornheiser and other sports/comedy writers!

At its best moments brings a smile on your face and at its worst makes you wonder the point it tries to make. As you probably already guessed from the title, it is easy read that should not be taken too seriously. Not something for the literary connoisseur, but US sports fans should find this more or less enjoyable. If you are not into football (not the European version), baseball, ice hockey or basketball this book is maybe not the best choice.
