Usually Ships in 2-3 Days
This book emerges as a compilation of 33 different texts, produced by Andreu Enrich during the last three years. All texts revolve around the nature of our sport while addressing a broad variety of topics. You will find reviews from major hockey events, articles about the rules of the game and its different formats. But also reflections about how to manage your squad and the talent within your hockey institution. However, the most important part of the book is about coaching and playing, so the reader will find many articles on these two topics. Andreu's way of approaching these topics is eminently philosophical. He tries to highlight new points of view while provoking, promoting the surprise and the reflection of the reader.
