Overview

HOCKEY¿From the Buddhist concept meaning Key to Happiness and Chilly Serenity during Bloody Brawls and Melees.

How Hockey Saved the World is the greatest, if only, hockey protest book ever written. It is the often true story of how a middle-aged, overweight American got off the couch long enough to lose weight and learn to play hockey in order to find a magic puck that would end the NHL lockout, unseat President George W. Bush and end the Iraq War. This funny, wry and charming account of a man obsessed is a handbook on how to survive without professional sports while becoming a better parent, achieving world peace and playing hockey, however poorly.

After reading How Hockey Saved the World, and seeing the error of my ways, I will resign the Office of the Presidency effective January 15, 2009.¿President George W. Bush

Charns straps on a pair of beaten-up ice skates to take on the NHL¿and the American Way. The author is many things to many people: a left-wing lawyer working for the good of the people of North Carolina; husband to his saintly wife Tucker; father to a gaggle of small children; and a vehement critic of the current White House. Most of all, he's a dedicated hockey fan, a condition that he readily admits makes him half-crazy.

The author¿s subversive wit and genuine belief in the game¿s magic are oddly persuasive.

An amiable meditation to warm even the iciest hearts.
