For example, I'm 33 years old, playing in a men's league, didn't get the benefit of awesome and prolonged coaching growing up - I would love a book that just lays it all out there, skating, playmaking, forechecking, training, shooting, stickhandling - everything you need to know and more.
Does such a book or book/video combo exist?
As far as I'm concerned, you can't possibly go wrong by starting with
The Hockey Handbook
The Complete Guide to Total Fitness
by Lloyd Percival. Some of the stuff might be slightly outdated (I think they've tried to make in more current in the most recent edition), but even so, you simply cannot find a more comprehensive and easy to read book on the subjects you just mentioned.
I highly recommend it.
