Book Review: ’100 Things Blackhawks Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die’ by Tab Bamford

*Written in 2014.

I recently reviewed the Chicago Cubs version of this book.

While Cubbie blue is what runs through my veins, I still have almost the same amount of love for the Chicago Blackhawks. Especially over the last several years, seeing this team win two championships in four years and knowing that the current team could reach dynasty status in the next few seasons. (note: they have since won four in six years)

I loved this book. Actually, I just love the formula of this series of books. Like the Cubs one, this book gave me 100 factoids that weren’t just recycled from every other similar book. There was a lot here that was new to me and the stories were great.

I can’t not praise this series enough, and this volume just reinforces my opinion. I think I’ll get a few more of these in the future, as they are interesting enough to make me want to read ones that aren’t even of teams I like.

Rating: 8/10
Pairs well with: Other books in this large series.
