May ctease, Jessi rated it liked it Shelves: I’ve spent a great number of years listening to Martin Brodeur in pressers and post-games beeyond such, so it’s difficult reading this book knowing that a good deal of his voice is lost in Damien Cox’s translation.
Hints of Marty pop up now and then, and there are some interesting stories and insight to the game, but I find the first-person narrative super misleading for something beyknd hybridized as crwase. Jul 11, Molly rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Nov 04, Jen rated it it was ok.
It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t the best biography I’ve read. It didn’t really seem to have many interesting stories in it.
Brodeur : Beyond the Crease by Martin Brodeur and Damien Cox (, Hardcover) | eBay
Lots of use of the word “I”, which makes sense since it’s an autobiography, but for some reason it didn’t go over well with me. Again, not bad, but not my favorite book in the world. Jan 06, Lenka Craigova rated it did not bordeur it. The guys gotta big ego.
All he talks about is stats and money and watever. Nothing inspirational or at least interesting. You disappointed me Brodeur. Mar 14, Rebecca rated it it was amazing Shelves: This was a really good history of all of Marty’s accomplishments.
I really enjoyed it. Jan 30, Stephen Brennan rated it really liked it. Martin Brodeur has been one of the most famous and well-known goaltenders in the game of hockey today.
After reading the autobiography Brodeur: Beyond the Crease, not only have I learned more about such an inspiring player to thousands of people across the sport of hockey, but also I now understand the meaning of superstition, pressure, and excitement in the life of Martin Brodeur. Growing up in St. Leonard near Montreal, Brodeur played hockey everyday as a kid. He did the little things that mad Martin Brodeur has been one of the most famous and beyind goaltenders in the game of hockey today.
He did the little things that made a difference early in his career. He worked his nrodeur to make his way up to be the goaltender that he beyonf today. Martin had to face pressure with a New Jersey Devils team that was facing uncertainty heading into the future.
With three Stanley Cup rings and two Vezina trophies, Brodeur has broken records that seemed impossible. This book talks about how Brodeur carried the weight of Devils to the Stanley Cup Finals in, and It also mentions how he dealt with the lockout of the season and the tournament he played with many other NHL players.
This autobiography also goes into the personal life of Brodeur and how he faced family problems, even during the playoffs. Jun 07, Ria F rated it it was amazing. Very well written, it’s like you hit a bar for an evening each chapter and Marty just talked about hockey stuff, teams, games, money, lockouts, coaches serious bromance with Lou how his personal life fit in, the Olympics, growing up in Montreal, his motorcycles.
Beynod always admired Marty’s play, calmness ok his not mine when he went out of the net for a puckhis ethics, team play and that only increased after reading the book. My favorite part of the book?? Him disciplining his son for act Very well written, it’s like you hit a bar for an evening each chapter and Marty just talked about hockey stuff, teams, games, money, brldeur, coaches serious bromance with Lou how his personal life fit in, the Olympics, growing up in Montreal, his motorcycles.
Him disciplining his son for acting like a Ranger’s fan I hope he someday writes a book on the second half – this brpdeur ends before the Devil’s moved to the Rock in Newark – he played a lot more big games, broke a lot more records. I’d also like to hear why I’m pretty sure it was because of Lou – although he was playing less to let Schneider play more – sucks getting old he broke my heart and went to the Blues, and especially Blues management. May 19, Caroline rated it really liked it Shelves: Roughly a quarter of what I know about hockey came from this book.
When I got it, I knew a few things, but nothing brodsur important. And here not only did I find the interesting, informative story of one of hockey’s all-time greats, I found myself laughing and enjoying the read. Marty Brodeur is a weird guy who basically admits to cheating on his wife and holding grudges against great players for dumb stuff they did. Personally, I’d begrudge them, too.
He also has a deep respect for Lou Lamoriel Roughly a quarter of what I know about hockey came from this book. There were a few things about this book that could have been changed, like how it wasn’t in much of an order timewise and how some kind of random stats were thrown around, but in general it was a good book. And it teaches you a lot about hockey, which is nice.
Jul 12, shannon rated it it was amazing. Brodeur certainly has an ego, he is undoubtedly an amazing goaltender. This was a decent read. Marty definitely went off on some tangents to give his opinion when it wasn’t necessary. It did give some cool insights into how the NJ Devils are run as an organization. I like to say “you gotta know the enemy. Jan 24, brodeurgirl30 rated it it was amazing.
Brodeur : Beyond the Crease by Martin Brodeur and Damien Cox (2006, Hardcover)
How could I give anything geyond than 5 stars! Jan 01, Lehnanne rated it really liked it. An interesting book about goalies, not much of a page-turner though.
May 25, bruce davidson added it. Apr 15, Breann rated it it was amazing. Honestly, this made me like Marty less. He comes off as an anti-Union nationalist.
