The Golden Jet [With DVD] by Bobby Hull, Bob Verdi

A must-have keepsake for Blackhawks fans of all ages, this souvenir provides the opportunity to celebrate the life of the greatest hockey player in Chicago's history. One of the most charismatic and electrifying athletes of his or any era, Bobby Hull thrilled fans with his unique combination of speed, skill, and grace and his electrifying career is highlighted in this biography where he traces his life from his days as a youngster learning to skate on the Bay of Quinte to his current role as a Blackhawks ambassador. Throughout the book, beautiful photos reflect on Hull's greatest moments, including amassing a team-record 604 career goals, collecting three Art Ross trophies as the league's leading scorer, earning Lord Stanley's Cup and a championship ring in 1961, and being inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1983. Featuring hundreds of rare, full-color photos from his personal archive and accompanying text from legendary Chicago sports columnist and Blackhawks team historian Bob Verdi, The Golden Jet gives Hull's millions of fans a never-before-seen glimpse into the life of this hockey icon. Bringing the pictures to life is an exclusive commemorative DVD, which includes highlights, interviews, and behind-the-scenes clips from the Blackhawks' video library.

Great book. Fabulous collection of outstanding photos of Bobby's life and career. Long overdue tribute to the greatest left-winger and most exciting player to watch in NHL history. As great as he was in action on the ice, he was even better in person off the ice in his relationship with people. Bob Verdi has lived up to his reputation as the best writer to cover the Hawks. Together with Hull they have scored a 'Hat Trick.'
