Hockey and sports books
 
I'm interested in buying hockey and sports books. I know a lot of people dislike learning from books but I don't. That's how I learned to play guitar ... add to that the 12 hour practicing a day ... but never had a teach and I have to say I'm quiet proficient at the instrument from classical guitar to jazz to heavy metal to latin to whatever, anyway that's not the point. I love learning from good books. I want to know what are some of the best references out there on sports in general, biomechanics, sports psychology, management, anything you know basically.

I have a few already from Francois Allaire's book to Gerard Gagnon's but I'd like some more. If anyone has some good recommendations also from other sports. I'm very interested in Bill Walsh among others.

This is slightly off-topic... I'm interested in buying an old crappy acoustic guitar ($200 budget lol) and learning how to play. Do you have any good book recommendations? send me a private message if you have any tips!

If you want an interesting read I'd take a look at Marty Brodeur's biography "Beyond the Crease".

For hockey instruction I'd start by recommending Laura Stamm's Powerskating book: http://www.amazon.com/Laura-Stamms-P...ref=pd_sim_b_2

I've also heard good things about Peter Twist's "Complete Conditioning for Hockey" http://www.amazon.com/Complete-Condi...ref=pd_sim_b_5


I'm not big on reading books for hockey but I've looked at it briefly. Cheers!

There is always the classic teaching guide "The Hockey Handbook" by Lloyd Percival. It has been revised by Major, Sadler, and Thom. New format edition published in 1997 by McClelland & Stewart.

It has detailed sections on skating, puck control, scoring goals, offensive strategy and tactics, defensive strategy and tactics, goaltending, practice organization and coaching technique, and training.


Also, if you are looking for a fun read try Dave Bidini's "Tropic of Hockey". Probably better known as a rhythm guitarist for the band the Rheostatics. Book is about him as a rec league player traveling the world and playing hockey in unusual places: China, United Arab Emirates, Transylvania, the 8th story of a shopping mall in Hong Kong.

My first guitar book was a Mel Bay instructional book.

I've been playing for 25 years or so and am quite good at it too. Nice to see another guitar player here *cheers*

indeed cheers

I love Mel Bay's books. I think the complete book of Harmony, Theory & Voicing is great and so are the Bret Willmott's books on polyrythms and other subjects ... Brett's a kickass teacher at Berklee as well ... btw, check out Mick Goodrick's books, especially the advancing guitarist book, I bought that one in my 2nd or 3rd year or guitar and it really helped me then

I have both of these and I give them a great thumbs up. They both come with instructional DVD's if you're illiterate or can't picture what the book is saying.

Plus, LAURA STAMM IS HOOOOOOOOOOOOOT.
