BOOK REVIEWS: FINALLY, "HOCKEY FOR DUMMIES;" BIRD GROUNDED?
Published November 19, 1997
CA-based IDG Books Worldwide is publishing "Hockey For Dummies" written by longtime hockey analyst John Davidson. "Hockey For Dummies," a licensed publication of the NHL, includes coaching advice on training and strategies for the game; offers tips for beginners playing the sport; and hints for viewers watching on TV and in person (NHL). BIRD CLIPPED? Pacers Coach Larry Bird "nixed a $200,000 advance" for "Full Court Press," a book about his first year as a coach, "because the offer wasn't lucrative enough," according to ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY. Bird's agent Frank Weimann said his client "deserves big money," but added that he "counseled his client to take the offer" (EW, 11/21).
