1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Anne Francis on April 10 2011
Format: Hardcover
This is a wonderful book about being a hockey dad. Spanning a season or two in a 10-year-old Select player's life that happened to coincide with his parents' separation, the book captures the nebulous feelings that sometimes come up between a father and son engaged in their favourite sports activity. In order to understand the game (and his son) better, Allen, who had never progressed very far as a hockey player when a youngster himself, started playing again. He humbly and humorously chronicles the small embarrassments, and occasional small triumphs, that come with learning a new skill. He also examines some of the troubling issues facing hockey parents, like the connection between checking and concussions. I highly recommend this book.
