More 2008 Hockey Book Previews

The 2008 hockey book previews keep coming fast and furious at HockeyBookReviews.com.

There's 5 new previews up, with a little something for everyone, especially for goalie aficionados.

1. The Patrick Roy biography is coming to English bookstores everywhere this fall. Last year the French edition "Le Guerrier" was a best seller in Quebec. The book provided the first truly intimate, no-holds-barred look at the early life and meteoric rise of their hero, told from a unique perspective: his father's.

2. Everyone likes goalie masks. So it surprises me no one before now has put together a photographic collection of the most famous masks over the years. That's what Jim Hynes and Gary Smith have done. Saving Face highlights the work of some of the world’s most famous mask artists and mask makers in action shots and stunning stills and features commissioned photographs from the Hockey Hall of Fame’s unparalleled collection of masks.

3. Alright, we all know it can be hard to find anything resembling literary genius in the hockey book world. But when the author is Jack Falla, you can count on a masterful reading experience. He's following up his big success he had with Home Ice by collecting several essays in his upcoming book Open Ice: Reflections And Confessions Of A Hockey Lifer.

Celebrating their 85th season in 2008-09, the Boston Bruins are a storied team with a long and rich history, and a fascinating cast of characters. Much of that history was caught on film by Steve Babineau, the team's photographer for the past 4 decades. Together with commentary from Rob Simpson, Babineau's photos retell the history of the Boston Bruins in Black And Gold: Four Decades Of The Boston Bruins In Photographs.

5. Author James Bisson polled many of Canada's top sports journalists, broadcasters and personalities to create the definitive list of The 100 Greatest Moments In Canadians Sports History. It is not strictly a hockey book, but you know hockey will figure prominently. Plus it never hurts to remember some other great moments in sporting history.
