It is a great privilege for a hockey team to make the Olympics. To win a Silver medal is a tremendous honor. It was hard to understand that we actually had an American Olympic hockey team virtually go almost totally unnoticed. I wanted to read this book to find out WHY? The authors bring to life the team with brief biographies of the players. The team work that took total committment to the sport. The brilliance of a coach who 'KNEW' his team and what made them tick. How the guys worked together to make this a champion team despite personality differences, etc., brings realism to each page. The authors have given us verbally 'the game.' If you're a hockey fan you will feel the emotions of the players, and literally hear the stick hit the puck. This book is one that I intend to buy for every young person I know that plays hockey. Its inspirational and above all shows our young 'Real Heroes' who were unsung until the authors of this excellent book gave them The Honor Due.Was this review helpful?
