Two best selling authors join forces to take a fresh look at hockey's most memorable moments in Hockey's Top 100: The Game's Greatest Records

Sports fans revel in records—the longest and shortest, the oldest and the youngest, the largest and the smallest. But what makes a record truly great? In Hockey’s Top 100, two of the best hockey minds in the world present their picks and explain, in mini record biographies, why they made the cut.

To compile their honor roll, celebrated hockey authors Don Weekes and Kerry Banks evaluated hundreds of hockey achievements according to their historical importance, degree of dominance, uniqueness, and longevity. Those that made the final cut represent the crown jewels in nearly a century of competition.
Richly illustrated with color photographs, Hockey’s Top 100 is sure to score big with fans of the world’s fastest game.

Joe's Note
Don Weekes has put out a ton of books over the years, mostly trivia related. He's really cornered that marketplace, but his titles go out of date quickly. It's good to see him branching out a bit. This book has some promise, and I'll be looking forward to checking this title out more than past titles
