As a young goaltender growing up in Toronto I was fortunate enough to watch Jacques Plante play. I have played, studied and taught goaltending for over thirty years. Nobody in the history of the game understood the demanding position of goaltending the way that Plante did. He revolutionized the position. Keep in mind that Bernie Parent didn't achieve his full potential until he came to Toronto and worked with Plante, Tretiak learned to play goal largely by studying films of Plante. Yes, this book is a little dated, especially the equipment section, but it is a well written book by the best to ever play the position. A must read for any aspiring goaltender.

This book is a very basic book. I found it not so helpful in the way that the information contained in the book isnt updated to the new techniques. Plante has never used the most popular NHL style ( the V style, butterfly) so its a big lack even if he has a few pages on it. The information is sometime unclear, not necessarely well write. Some things are repeated many times. So, I you buy this book, its OK. But dont rely ONLY on it. BUY other more modern books that are concious of today goaltending.

This goalie's bible addresses all aspects of the position - physical, mental, and pregame conditioning. Jacques Plante was the master professor of goaltending; thankfully, he committed his best tips and techniques to this superb manual. I originally bought it in the late 70's, and recently purchased the latest edition for my son. If you don't label, dog-ear, and highlight every few pages of this ultimate hands-on guide, you're not using it right!!

Although Jacques Plante has passed on,this book serves as a reminder of his great work ethic. While many books break positions down to minute strategies,this one stays more fundamental. Coverage of mental and physical form along with equiptment and coaching of goalies is achieved gracefully. My son and I broke things down for his begining level and he thoroughly enjoys it.
