Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Ice hockey has received some notoriety in recent months because of incidents of violence that sometimes mar this typically fine sport. However, as readers of John Wright's Hockey will discover, while aggressive action is part of this sport, mayhem should not be. In this volume in the seventeen-book "Sports Injuries" series readers are provided a helpful template for better understanding this fast-paced and exciting team sport. In Hockey the reader is initially offered a brief history of this winter sport. Wright then moves on to perhaps the most interesting portion of the book within which the author neatly details psychological and bodily preparatory activities that will hone an athlete's performance. Finally, Wright discusses some of the vocational aspects that are available to athletes interested in making hockey a career field. In the end, John Wright's Hockey is a sound introduction to the ins and outs of this swiftly natured sport. Hockey is a concisely written and carefully thought out book that will appeal to coaches, players, and fans of one of the most hard fought and complex team sports currently in operation. 2004, Mason Crest Publishers, Ages 9 to 12.
