I recently read "orange back and blue" by chuck gormley and "jonesy" by keith jones/john buccigross. Looking for another one any suggestions?

"Score" by Gene Hart is a must.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of the Philadelphia Flyers isn't too bad. I also hear the Pelle Lindberg bio by Bill Meltzer is pretty good but I haven't got around to reading it yet.

Everyone here should have that book.

For the younger fans "The Greatest Players and Moments of the Philadelphia Flyers" by Stan Fischler gives a nice, brief rundown of many of the players you hear us old timers talk about but never had a chance to see.

I have The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of the Philadelphia Flyers. It pretty much explains the history and tons of little fun facts. I enjoyed it.

Not Directly Philadelphia but certianly one of the greatest Flyers ever
Pelle Lindberghs : Behind the White mask.. Awesome read, you might even get a little teary, but I warn you, once you start reading you'll find yourself reading until its over, its really addicting!

Meltzer's Lindbergh book was excellent. Highly recommended, a real tear jerker. I'm currently reading Orange Black and Blue and enjoying it quite a bit thus far.

Full Spectrum by Jay Greenberg, is the best Flyers book by a mile.

The definitive book that chronicles the Flyers from before their existance, until the end of the 1994-95 season.

I've had it for a while and haven't read it yet, but Jim Jackson wrote Walking Together Forever: The Broad Street Bullies, Then and Now. I've read some of Score! by Gene Hart, which someone else mentioned and liked it.

Start with the first two listed. They are valuable resources.
  1. "Full Spectrum: The Complete History of the Philadelphia Flyers Hockey Club" by Jay Greenberg.
  2. "Score!: My Twenty-Five Years with the Broad Street Bullies" by Gene Hart.
  3. "Bobby Clarke and the Ferocious Flyers" by Stan Fischler.
  4. "Orange, Black and Blue" by Chuck Gormley.
  5. "Walking Together Forever: The Broad Street Bullies, Then and Now" by Jim Jackson.
  6. "Pelle Lindbergh: Behind the White Mask" by Bill Meltzer & Thomas Tynander.
  7. "The Broad Street Bullies: The Incredible Story of the Philadelphia Flyers" by Jack Chevalier (though this is rare and expensive).
  8. "Philadelphia Flyers Encyclopedia" by David Sherman.
  9. "The Greatest Players and Moments of the Philadelphia Flyers" by Stan Fischler.
  10. "The Good, the Bad & the Ugly Philadelphia Flyers: Heart-pounding, Jaw-dropping, and Gut-wrenching Moments from Philadelphia Flyers History" by Adam Kimelman.
  11. "Open Net" by George Plimpton. A must for any hockey fan. The book is mostly about the author's tryout with the Bruins but it includes the notorious Flyers-Bruins' late 70s preseason game brawl at the Spectrum and that alone is worth the read.

DVDs:
  • Philadelphia Flyers 10 Greatest Games DVD Set
  • History of the Philadelphia Flyers
