One man's search to answer the ultimate question in sports: Why is hockey so incredibly awesome?

DAVE HILL—author, actor, rock musician and stand-up comedian—is an outstanding American. One thing that makes him stand out is that he's part Canadian—an advantage he explored in his previous book, Parking the Moose. Another is that he's obsessed with hockey. That makes him one of only five percent of Americans who've declared they like hockey more than any other sport. Unbelievable but true.

In The Awesome Game, Dave tackles this mind-blowing conundrum with full force, drilling down into what makes hockey so vitally important in so many parts of the world, despite the average American not recognizing its preeminent greatness.

His search for the very soul of hockey takes him across the globe, from Canada (of course) to Poland, Kenya, even New York, to observe on-ice action, mingle with fans and interrogate some of the sport's greatest players and pundits.

The Awesome Game is bursting with passion, expert in its analysis and as deeply entertaining as the game itself (but funnier).
