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.
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!
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.
"Full Spectrum: The Complete History of the Philadelphia Flyers Hockey Club" by Jay Greenberg.
"Score!: My Twenty-Five Years with the Broad Street Bullies" by Gene Hart.
"Bobby Clarke and the Ferocious Flyers" by Stan Fischler.
"Orange, Black and Blue" by Chuck Gormley.
"Walking Together Forever: The Broad Street Bullies, Then and Now" by Jim Jackson.
"Pelle Lindbergh: Behind the White Mask" by Bill Meltzer & Thomas Tynander.
"The Broad Street Bullies: The Incredible Story of the Philadelphia Flyers" by Jack Chevalier (though this is rare and expensive).
"Philadelphia Flyers Encyclopedia" by David Sherman.
"The Greatest Players and Moments of the Philadelphia Flyers" by Stan Fischler.
"The Good, the Bad & the Ugly Philadelphia Flyers: Heart-pounding, Jaw-dropping, and Gut-wrenching Moments from Philadelphia Flyers History" by Adam Kimelman.
"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.
