A truly outstanding read!

As a child of the 60's, who was forced to go to bed on school nights before the games were over, this is truly a walk down memory lane!

Skillfully written by Outstanding author Kevin Shea (who was ably assisted by 3 other very qualified individuals), this is a pleasurable publication, that does not bore the reader, as some diaries have, but rather, enlightens even the most loyal of Maple Leaf fans with details and insights that clearly show that there was a tremendous amount of research done by the authors!

For those of us who were around at the time, it is a pleasant trip down memory lane. For those Maple Leaf fans who came after 1967 it is a pleasant and informative look at an age of hockey that we will never see again.

Imagine NHL hockey with only 360 player openings in the League! Imagine watching a game with no advertising on the boards or on the ice! Imagine playing the other teams in the league 14 times a season! The teams travelled by train, and, in the case of a home and home weekend series, didn't speak to members of the other team during these trips! Less than a dozen players wore helmets (that's because there was a lot more respect for your fellow player than there is now!).

I could go on further, but that would spoil the pleasurable experience that reading this book provides!

This is a great read even for fans of other teams!

Enjoy!

For any of us who lived through the Leaf dynasty, and even for those who don't believe there ever was one, this is a fabulous book. Well written, easy to read and well-documented. I would highly recommend it to anyone who remembers or those of you who still dream of the day.

Great book, one of the better written Sports books April 27 2014
By Sedat Kulafofski - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is a great one, I'd recommend this to any Leaf fan. Author does a great job taking the reader back to the glory days of the Leafs. So many sports books are written by journalists that must only get the gig due to name recognition and little else. Shea's writing transcends mere sports. Solid writer.
Worth The Price For The Real Original Six Fan March 3 2013
By Hallauthor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
While the look and feel of the book are a little "casual" for my tastes given the regal subject, the points of view expressed by the participants and the accounts by the author give you a great feel for this very special time in Maple Leaf history. I wish there would have been more noteworthy photographs, but it was still worth it.
