I read two Messier books.

Messier by Jeff Z. Klein
Messier: Hockey's Dragonslayer by Rick Carpiniello


Both are reviewed on Amazon. Both of them are pretty good reads. You can read both of them because there isn't that much overlap as far as redundancy goes. I was particulary interested in some of the input Messier had on trades. He was not very happy when Neil Smith traded Nemchinov (DragonSlayer) and in Klein's Messier bio, they talk about some controversy with Messier wearing number 11 for Vancouver. It was "unofficially retired to tribute Wayne Maki.

If you enjoy reading about the shortcomings of our rivals, I also enjoyed Fish Sticks: The Fall and Rise of the New York Islanders.
