I liked it a lot, enough that I bought my own copy of it and re-read it. It's a quick read and he points out a lot of contrasts between the cultures, both on the ice and off. There are also a couple of names in there you'll recognize, some of the players he befriended ended up playing in North America for a little while. It's an interesting perspective on late-post Soviet hockey that you won't find anywhere else.
