I recommend this to anyone – even non-hockey fans!

Even though I’m not a hockey fan, I enjoyed and recommend this audiobook by Bill O’Neil and Ryan Black. Scott Miller’s narration also contributed to making my experience so pleasant. I am very grateful that I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request ; I have voluntarily left this review.

Some really cool facts in a fun way

I am a huge hockey fan, but not super knowledgeable about hockey outside of the team I follow, so this seemed like it would be a lot of fun. It did not disappoint. There are some great stories in here and the facts are interesting ones. The lists get a little long in audio format. In a book, you could just skim the list of names if you don't really care to read them all, but in audio, they have to go through them. The 15-second skip feature worked wonders on that though and it certainly wasn't anything that kept me from enjoying the book. If you like hockey, this one is full of great info in a fun format.
