Hockey Card Stories reveals what was really going on in your favourite old hockey cards through the eyes of the players depicted on them. Some of the cards are definitely worth a few bucks, some a few cents - but every story told here is priceless. Sportsnet's Ken Reid presents the cards you loved and the airbrushed monstrosities that made you howl, the cards that have been packed away in boxes forever, and others you can't believe ever existed. Whether it's a case of mistaken identity or simply a great old photo, a fantastic 1970s haircut and 'stache, a wicked awesome goalie mask or a future Hall of Famer's off-season fashion sense, a wide variety of players - from superstars like Bobby Orr, Denis Potvin, and Phil Esposito to the likes of Bill Armstrong who played only one game in the NHL - chime in on one of their most famous cards.

Canadian broadcasters Bob McKenzie and Jim Lang bring together players, from youth hockey to the NHL, and the people who support them to show us what hockey means to them.

Read about players like Ben Fanelli, who overcame catastrophic injury to keep playing the game he loved and is using his story as a platform to help others, or the renowned Canadian neurosurgeon Dr. Charles Tator, who is leading the charge to protect athletes from the dangers of brain trauma and concussion. From hockey commentators Andi Petrillo and Harnarayan Singh, who broke down barriers to be on air, to Karina Potvin, the youth hockey coach welcoming Syrian boys and girls to Canada by introducing them to our national pastime, these are the stories of everyday hockey heroes—those who defy the odds, advocate for inclusion, and champion the next generation of hockey.

Bob Woodward, die Ikone des investigativen Journalismus in den USA, hat alle amerikanischen Präsidenten aus nächster Nähe beobachtet. Nun nimmt er sich den derzeitigen Präsidenten vor und enthüllt den erschütternden Zustand des Weißen Hauses unter Donald Trump. Woodward beschreibt, wie dieser Präsident Entscheidungen trifft, er berichtet von eskalierenden Debatten im Oval Office und in der Air Force One, dem volatilen Charakter Trumps und dessen Obsessionen und Komplexen. Woodwards Buch ist ein Dokument der Zeitgeschichte: Hunderte Stunden von Interviews mit direkt Beteiligten, Gesprächsprotokolle, Tagebücher, Notizen – auch von Trump selbst – bieten einen dramatischen Einblick in die Machtzentrale der westlichen Welt, in der vor allem eines herrscht: Furcht. Woodward ist das Porträt eines amtierenden amerikanischen Präsidenten gelungen, das es in dieser Genauigkeit noch nicht gegeben hat.

Ein hinreißendes Lesevergnügen – witzig, romantisch und unglaublich sexy! Die Journalistin Jane Alcott ist klein und ausgesprochen zierlich, ihr Outfit lässt sich allenfalls als praktisch oder dezent beschreiben, zudem ist sie mit mehr als nur einer Prise Schlagfertigkeit und Sturheit gesegnet. Also genau der Typ Frau, den der gefeierte Eishockeystar Luc Martineau normalerweise keines zweiten Blickes würdigt. Nun bekommt aber ausgerechnet Jane den Auftrag, eine Saison lang exklusiv über Lucs Team zu berichten. Und bald muss Luc erkennen, wie trügerisch der erste Eindruck sein kann ...

»Die Verzauberung der Schatten« ist der zweite Band der Weltenwanderer-Trilogie von V. E. Schwab rund um den Antari Kell und Trickbetrügerin Delilah Bard. Eine Geschichte voller Magie, Abenteuer – und Piraten. Die Stadt London gibt es vier Mal – im grauen wohnt die Langeweile, im weißen der Hass und im schwarzen das Nichts. Doch im Roten London, da wohnt die Magie ... Vier Monate ist es her, dass Kell gegen die dunkelste Form der Magie gekämpft hat. Noch immer leidet der Antari unter Albträumen, und die gewiefte Taschendiebin Delilah Bard, kurz Lila, geht ihm einfach nicht aus dem Kopf. Sie hat sich inzwischen jedoch einen Traum erfüllt: Sie segelt mit dem Nachtfalken über die Meere der Welt. Das Rote London steht ganz im Taumel des Spiels der Elemente, einem Turnier, bei dem Magier aus aller Welt ihre Kräfte messen. Auch Kell will antreten. Während zahlreiche Gäste, darunter der berüchtigte Pirat Alucard Emery, in die Stadt kommen, bemerkt jedoch niemand, wie ein anderes London aus seinem düsteren Schlaf erwacht und diejenigen wiederkehren, die als für immer verloren galten. Ein Abenteuer mit liebenswerten Figuren, düsteren Überraschungen und jeder Menge Wortwitz in der atemberaubenden Welt der vier London. »Fantasy, wie sie sein muss.« Publishers Weekly

One hot afternoon in 1998, Dave Bidini – who loves hockey, watches it, plays it, and breathes it – found the Stanley Cup final so tedious to watch that at one point he clicked channels to Martha Stewart – and never switched back. This made him wonder where in the world the game might exist free of the complications of professional sport. He set out to find the tropic of hockey. His quest took him to a rink on the seventh storey of a mall in Hong Kong – a rink encircled by a dragon-headed roller coaster – and to the gritty city of Harbin in northern China, where a version of hockey has been played for 600 years; to Dubai in the desert of the United Emirates, where hockey is brand new and incredulous Bedouin drop by the Al Ain rink to touch the ice; and to Transylvania, where the game is a war between Romanians and ethnic Hungarians, who were introduced to hockey by a 1929 newsreel of Canadians chasing the puck. Bidini’s encounters with odd-sized rinks and players of wildly different talents and experiences have inspired him to interweave his stories of hockey in unlikely places with funny and eyebrow-raising stories about places and players back in Canada. As a bonus, readers are also treated to some striking observations about the game, its fans, and the testosterone, the profanity, and the moments of grace that enrich it.
