Thunder and Lightning

by Phil Esposito

Phil Esposito, the center from the SOO (Sault St. Marie, Ontario) documents the life of a legend skating on thin ice. In this memoir, Espo covers the various aspects of his colorful life in hockey: from being a legendary player, commentator and coach to general manager, founder and part owner of the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Esposito saw it all: the booze, the drugs, the women, the financial shenanigans, the good times and the camaraderie, the bad times and the backstabbing. In telling co-author Pete Golenblock what it was really like, Esposito takes readers into the boardrooms, back rooms- and even the bedrooms- of the men who make their lives in the NHL.
