Reviews

"While the Seals were not a success on the ice or on the business pages, they left their mark in hockey history and their story is one that should be told. Currier does this in an entertaining manner and any hockey fan who wants to learn anything about this franchise should read this book."-Lance Smith, Guy Who Reviews Sports Books -- Lance Smith * Guy Who Reviews Sports Books *
"[Steve Currier] tells the detailed story of this curious, sad sack franchise, chronicling both the legacy of losing and some colorful chapters in NHL history."-Dave Buchanan, Arete

"The Seals are remembered today as one of the most colorful outfits in hockey history. And now the whole story of hockey, chaos, and heartbreak is expertly told in Steve Currier's The California Golden Seals, a book that shines a long-overdue spotlight on a team and a time, the likes of which we shall never see again."-Todd Denault, author of Jacques Plante: The Man Who Changed the Face of Hockey

-- Todd Denault
"This is my kind of book. Steve Currier dives head first into the history of the Seals. . . . This detailed history of the ill-fated and often forgotten team lets us in on everything that was right, and especially everything that was wrong with the Seals. . . . These were real men with real highs and real lows. Lots of lows. Steve Currier takes us on a great trip back in time to the NHL's original Northern California adventure."-Ken Reid, anchor for SportsNet and author of Hockey Card Stories
