    "This book contains pretty much encyclopedic knowledge about field hockey! So many tip and tricks; even experienced players will find something here to help improve their game. Beginners will get lots out of it too--if you don't know much about the sport, there's plenty of information about the basics. Everything is laid out super clearly and is easy to follow and understand. "

    "While a decent book for field hockey, when you hear "best hockey gifts" don't think the mind typically goes to field hockey, I know mine doesn't. So, I'd place this firmly outside the best hockey gifts and go with something that a fan of ice hockey would enjoy."

    My Life in Hockey
    This Jean Béliveau biography gives full insight about both his athlete and office career. He was the captain of the Canadiens during the franchise's best years, but this was nothing compared with what was waiting for him next: a successful front office experience and a battle against cancer.

    "While a book about hockey may be a thought gift for hockey fans, the topic is likely looking for actual hockey related gifts rather than books."

    "I don't really see the need for this book when all the information contained in it can be gotten for free off of the internet. Watch youtube for hockey drills, look up various plays on forums. Nothing new to see here."
