The father of Russian hockey, Anatoly Tarasov has left us a unique perspective on the history and development of hockey in his homeland. In this, his last book before his death in 1995, he provides a fascinating and informal assessment of the Russian and Canadian styles of hockey through the eyes of a world-famous coach. In an intimate context, Tarasov also talks candidly about players from Russia and other European and North American countries. Tarasov reveals how the Russian players were trained, both technically and tactically, on their way to becoming a dominate force in the world of international hockey. In explaining how the Russian players prepared to defeat the North Americans, including teams from the National Hockey League, he exposes the weaknesses and praises the strengths of the Canadian style of play.
