And I knew nothing about the game. I started this adventure without even knowing how many players played at one time, how the games and periods were structured, anything. I fortunately sat next to a few really nice guys who helped explain the roles, penalties, and rules but there was a lot left I still didn't get. So I went searching for a book and found this one. Greg Wyshynski was hilarious, insightful, and did exactly what he said: he gave me a better understanding of the game and how to watch it. I'm far from an expert, I will absolutely read this again when the 18-19 season starts up & it will probably make even more sense then, but for now, so many things I had seen were suddenly put into perspective. I understand the plays that were made, the decisions made, and even background information on how teams are formed, the drafts, the rules, recent changes to the system and player safety, and even some tidbits of how it used to be played. There's a wealth of knowledge here that he delivered in a very fun, relatable way even for baby beginners like me. Highly recommended & definitely loaning this out to the friends and family I'm going to drag into this sport with me.
Subjectivity aside, there were also several typos in this book that made it almost impossible to read. "If" was used interchangeably with "it," and there were several others that made this feel like a rough draft.
Don't buy this book unless you're this guy's friend. And if you are, please tell him to stop talking so loudly on planes and at parties. If he wants to really teach me "how to watch hockey," he should start from the beginning.
