I LIKE the “100 Things ...” series. In general, the books describe a lot of things that fans of the team (or musician, or whatever the book is about) already know but like to reminisce about. Some of the things ARE new to all but the most incredibly devout fanatics of the topic, and a few others describe sites to pilgrimage to rather than incidents. Adam Kimelman's “100 Things Flyers Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die” is a great example of the series. I won't pretend to be a Flyers fan – more the opposite, to be honest – but you have to appreciate the history of a team in order to truly and effectively dislike it! There are so many characters in the history of the team, from Fred Shero and Bobby Clarke to Mike Keenan and Jeremy Roenick, from Bernie Parent and Bobby Clarke to Ron Hextall and Tim Kerr, from Dave Schultz and Dave “Big Bird” Saleski to Paul Holmgren and … well, you get the idea. But not all the memories are happy ones – Barry Ashbee's playing career was cut short by an injury, and his coaching career / life by cancer. Pelle Lindbergh's post-victory celebration with his teammates ended with his death in an auto accident. And throughout, the consistency of Ed Snyder's ownership ties the entire history of the team together in a consistent timeline. This is the second book I've read in this series, and the third is in progress. On the basis of what I've read so far, I would not hesitate to pick up ANY book in this series, regardless of topic. I'm sure I will enjoy it. RATING: 4 1/2 stars, rounded down to 4 stars.

I gave this book to a Flyers fan and he commented a few weeks later that he really enjoyed some 'new' and 'interesting' things. Makes for a successful gifting!
