Book Description

2000 Peter Goddard Books
This fifth book in the popular Remembering series gives us an inside look at NHL legend Phil Esposito. When we think of Esposito's greatness-his two Stanley Cups; his record-setting 76 goals in the 1970-71 NHL season; his heroic role in Team Canada's victory over the Soviets in the 1972 Summit Series-much of it seems explained by his "ordinariness." Lacking the pure athleticism of teammate Bobby Orr or the dazzle of former Chicago linemate Bobby Hull, "Espo" got by on qualities that seem more in line with the values of the average person-a proud work ethic, a sense of humour and an unabashed desire to succeed. Maybe that's why hockey fans couldn't help but love him. The kid who'd been cut from midget and junior teams-who'd been written off as too heavy and slow-had somehow found the will to persevere, and to become a legend. Beautifully designed and packed with photos and classic sports journalism, the books in the Remembering series are treasures of hockey nostalgia.

First Sentence
Who could have guessed, in the feel-good glow of Canada's Centennial, that the Toronto Maple Leaf's Stanley Cup victory of 1967 - a six-game triumph over their hated rivals, the Montreal Canadiens - would be followed by a 33 year (and counting) winless drought? Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars An all-star book about an all-time defenseman June 6 2001
Format:Hardcover
To today's young hockey players and fans, the name Tim Horton elicits thoughts of coffee and donuts; to an older generation of fans, the name Tim Horton brings memories of one of the greatest defenseman ever to play the sport.
Tim Horton was the strongest hockey player of his generation, perhaps of all-time. He was not a goon, however -- he would end fights simply by wrapping his muscular arms around much-bigger players and pulling them apart. He was known for his generosity and gratitude. His teammates made gentle fun of his poor eyesight, calling him "Cousin Weak-Eyes." Horton and Bobby Baun anchored a Leaf defense unmatched in team history.
Tragically, Tim Horton was killed in a car accident in February 1974. Hockey lost one of its heroes.
Craig MacInnis's REMEMBERING TIM HORTON is a terrific look back at the man and the legend. MacInnis and his roster of veteran journalists and writers bring us back to the days when honor meant more than stardom, when pride and winning meant more than a contract hold-out and who's picked higher in the NHL draft, when the Leafs were fighting to winning the Stanley Cup instead of hurrying to pack up their golf bags a few weeks earlier than the Cup champions.

Format:Hardcover
This book is a collection of articles concerning Tim Horton. Very complimentary of the man and player, the articles definitely give you a feel for the time and play of Tim Horton.
Known to most of us because of the donuts (and they are really good!), this collection allows a glimpse of the man as well. I would recommend this book for those who want a feel for 50 and 60s hockey, as well as those who want the feel of the times.

This is a great book for those interested in hockey behind the scenes. It is very interesting to read stories told by people such as Punch Imlach etc. about Tim Horton off the ice, in the dressing room and family man. This book is not only for those hockey fans of the 6 team days, but modern day hockey fanatics as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Know Tim Horton Oct. 24 2008
By K. Vargas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Tim Horton's will forever be known as a place for a tasty treat, but all future Hockey generations should also know just why this man's name was so essential to the creation of a donut empire. He was admired and respected, and if he was playing today he would be exactly the kind of player the NHL would hitch it's marketing wagon to. Skill, size, and heart...what youthful Hockey hopeful wouldn't want to be like Tim? This series has been a magical flashback for fans and I sincerely hope they pick more colorful characters to allow us a look into their locker room.
