Best hockey book available Sept. 17 2010
By Anthony Holden - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have to agree with the other 2 reviewers. I have read practically every hockey coaching/drill book and watched nearly every video out there, and this one is in a class all by itself. This book has plenty of diagrams, but also the detailed explanation that is lacking in drill books. Other books tell you how to run the drill. This book does that too, but also focuses on the subtler teaching points. This book explains what you are trying to do (e.g. having the second forward drive in hard splitting the defenders and isolating one to create a 2-on-1) and why it works. I wish I would have had this book 10 years ago.

Recommendation from Howtohockey.com Nov. 11 2012
By Jeremy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My name is Jeremy, I run the hockey training blog howtohockey.com. I am always looking to expand my knowledge of the game of hockey and pass on what I know to the readers of my blog. This book was perfect to refresh some of the concepts I know and introduce a lot of new ones. I would recommend this book to every coach, and any player who wants to expand their knowledge of plays, strategy and positioning. The only problem is once you know this stuff you might get frustrated when your team mates are always in the wrong spot and making the wrong plays :)

Nothing else like it July 25 2010
By Kartboy16 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
For years I have been searching for a book that goes beyond simple charts; arrows directing players without much explanation on why? Most books will describe the general concept of the play but provide little insight for each individual position. Being a right winger, I always found myself asking how would I read the play and choose the right course of action; read and react. Hockey plays and strategies is the first book I have found that effectively combines play diagrams with reading and reacting for each individual position. As a beer leaguer, I just wanted a book that could help me understand the subtle nuances of the game so I am grateful that Ryan Walter and mike johnstone decided to write this book and hope that there will be more in the future.

Another great book for technique is power skating by Laura stamm...

Required Reading May 5 2013
By George B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I play adult hockey, but played as a kid so had an idea about the basics. However, if you want to get a better grasp of the game even if its just to understand whats happening in the NHL on tv then buy this book. My game has improved and am having more fun than ever.

Great book March 13 2013
By txtacco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've been having my Pee Wee hockey playing son read a chapter every week before his game and saw an immediate improvement after one chapter. He's a defenseman and his current coach doesn't spend enough time teaching tactics and strategy. He now teaching his teammates the techniques he's picked up from the book. The book has a nice combination of text and diagrams, so even if their comprehension or attention span is limited, the pictures reinforce and simplify the verbiage.
