Puck Funnies edited by Adam Proteau and The Hockey News

The Hockey News' second hockey book of 2009 is Puck Funnies: Hockey Humour, Hilarity and Hi-Jinx.

Buy The Book: Amazon.ca - Chapters - Amazon.com

The Good - Think of it as GHL's Sunday Funnies hits the hockey book shelves. This text is full of funny hockey stories throughout hockey history. Everyone loves a funny story and everyone loves hockey. And I want everyone to love hockey history every bit as much as I do. How can I not recommend this book?

The stories are told by some of the best writers in the business, plus some comedians including Denis Leary and Colin Mochrie.

The Bad - Presentation counts, and the cover fails. Hockey is full of humorous stories and many are listed in these 225 pages. But the Frosted Pucks cereal box look with a monkey on the cover is more sad than funny.

Presentation also fails on the inside. I understand the cost concerns, but why this book is not fitted with the same glossy pages and color photography that THN's other 2009 title, The Pursuit of Hockeyness, has is beyond me.

The Verdict - A great read to have some fun and learn some hockey history, Puck Funnies makes for an inexpensive Christmas gift or stocking stuffer.
