Its is now 2013. It has been along time since Pelle's death and I still miss him. His death was in the time when I first stared to follow The Philadelpdia Flyers. I instantly fell in love with the Philadelphia Flyers. I love the Flyers and always will. I miss Pelle so very much. The Flyers will always be my team. I now live out in Arizona and In not able to see the Flyers and I cant go to a Flyers game but I wish I could. I just want to tell the Philadelphia Flyers thankyou for the magic that you have given to my life and still continue to give to my life. Even though I have not read the Pelle book yet I will when I get some money. Good luck Philadelphia Flyers and thankyou. I loveyou guys and always will.

Well written, informative, a bit of nostalgia! I remember hearing the announcement of Pelle Lindbergh's accident and subsequent death. This book is a must read for hockey fans, especially for those following the history of the Philadelphia Flyers.
