A veteran hockey writer takes on hockey culture and the NHL--addressing the games most controversial issue Whether its on-ice fist fights or head shots into the glass, hockey has become a nightly news spectacle--with players pummeling and bashing each other across the ice like drunken gladiators. And while the NHL may actually condone on-ice violence as a ticket draw, diehard hockey fan and expert Adam Proteau argues against hockeys transformation into a thuggish blood sport. In Fighting the Good Fight, Proteau sheds light on the many perspectives of those in and around the game, with interviews of current and former NHL stars, coaches, general managers, and league executives, as well as medical experts. One of the most well-known media figures on the hockey scene today, famous for his funny, feisty observations as a writer for the Toronto Star and The Hockey News and commentator on CBC radio and TV, Adam Proteau is also one of the few mainstream media voices who is vehemently anti-fighting in hockey. Not only is his book a plea to the games gatekeepers to finally clamp down on the runaway violence that permeates the sport even at its highest level, he offers realistic suggestions on ways to finally clean the game up. · Includes interviews with medical experts on head injuries and concussions, as well as with other members of the media · The author not only wages an attack on the value of fighting in hockey--but also on the establishment hockey culture Covering the most polarizing issue in hockey today, Fighting the Good Fight gives hockey fans and sports lovers everywhere a reason to stamp their feet and whistle--at a rare display of eloquence and common sense.

I have recently read the book "Market Trading Tactics". Of all the past investments that i have made (starting only this past month) this was the best pick with the largest return. Although the book caters to what I find to be a louder term investing strategy than I would like to use I have taken all of the suggestions in the book and applied them to my pseudo day-trading. I was down 1,350.00 not making a single winning trade. Today I used the tech analysis system described in the book of buy points and sell point to make my very first profit in the stock market. My wife up till today thought that my investment ventures were a waste of time, after today she is now Guppy's biggest fan. I spent a great deal of time comparing Guppy's methods with historical data on issues that I had traded on this past month, had I used the methods then, on these same stocks, I would have been leaving town this weekend on vacation in style. I will continue to use the recommended style of trading as long as I invest, or at least till Guppy's next book comes out with a new plan. Thank you Mr. Guppy --David ParkerFrom the Back Cover:
