A thought-provoking, fun, and gentle introduction to some basic issues in physics, The Physics of Hockey is a truly unique book worthy of the shelf of every hockey fan and physics enthusiast.
Alain Hache is an assistant professor of physics at the Universite de Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada.
Hache brings to this informative study the perspective of a physicist and amateur hockey player (goalie). He stints on neither the physics, which he presents clearly, nor the hockey, making the reader feel like going to a game. Scientific American Intriguing... Hache is a physics professor and an amateur hockey player who combines his two passions in this book, which uses hockey to explain various aspects of physics, from thermodynamics to fluid dynamics. Publishers Weekly A book that will amuse and delight hockey lovers... Physical concepts are covered at a level that the average first year physics student would readily grasp. This book is highly recommended recreational reading for anyone with an inclination toward physics and an interest in the game. -- Tim Bach The Physicist (Australia) The Physics of Hockey opened my eyes to a whole new way of viewing and understanding the game I love. It is pure entertainment, cover to cover. Who would have guessed physics could be so much fun? -- Mike Brophy The Hockey News An incredibly well-written and very approachable book... For chemists in the audience..., there are several discussions laced throughout the text that border more on materials science than physics. -- Randall C. Willis Today's Chemist at Work Enjoyable to read... All aspects of the game are investigated and the mathematics are easy to follow. Physics Teacher 2004 Many high school students will learn good science, and any reader will learn more about the game. Choice 2003 A great book and well worth buying a copy. -- Calvin S. Kalman Physics Teacher 2007
