5.0 out of 5 stars From Adey to Zamick 23 Nov 2008
The biographies are listed alphabetically which means that they run from Paul Adey to Chick Zamick, both of whom, coincidentally, made their names with Nottingham Panthers.

Between these two heroes of hockey are an enormous variety of personalities (98 in all) who have graced the British game over the last 70 years and more. They range from pioneers like Peter Patton and Blaine Sexton to more recent icons, Ian and Stephen Cooper, Alex Dampier and Scott Neil. The members of the selection panel have a broad-minded approach, especially in recent years when Ice Hockey Journalists UK (formerly the British Ice Hockey Writers Association) took over the near impossible task from the original decision-makers, Bob Giddens, and his fellow journalists on the Ice Hockey World newspaper. So you can read about Allan and Annette Petrie, the husband and wife team who founded and run the GB Supporters Club (the only fan club for a national team in ice hockey), and Ken Swinburne, the `Mr Fix-it' of the immortal Durham Wasps.

Mr Harris, the only non-North American to win the prestigious Brian McFarlane Award for outstanding research and writing in respect of his previous book, The Homes of British Ice Hockey (Tempus, 2006), has done the game a tremendous service here by not only expanding biographies previously published, since 1986-87, in editions of The Ice Hockey Annual but also by adding profiles of all the earlier members, many of whom will be quite unknown to today's fans. All this, of course, makes the book essential reading for all true devotees of our sport.

Reviewed in association with Stewart Roberts, editor of The Ice Hockey Annual.
