    1. In the interest of full disclosure, I have been a hockey official for the past 22 years So this book is totally in my wheel house Kerry did a great job telling some awesome stories from his 30 years in the NHL This book isn t just for refs This book is perfect for any hockey fan.


    2. Kerry Fraser has an impressive memory of the details of his career, especially regarding anyone who ever praised him for his years of service I would have preferred to read less about every person who would miss him after 2,165 games and about how he got there Dividing his memories by team left the narrative disjointed, and it felt like he focused on the history of each franchise than his own history That might seem humble if he wasn t constantly reminding us everyone thinks he s the greatest [...]


    3. Decent idea to read a sports memoir from someone other than a player I did appreciate some candid facts and stories but the book had an odd uneven flow that took away from the clarity.


    4. outstanding book from start to finish it is a really crisp, different view of the game of hockey while being a player may be tough, its likely equally tough to go in there and officiate kerry frasier may have been one of the best referees to ever grace the game there are quite a few stories in there that are simply outstanding how many other people can say they officiated games with greats like gretsky, lindros, lemieux, forsberg, etc etc and yet it isnt just a story of his respect for those pla [...]


    5. Kerry Frasier desperately needed an editor for this book While I really enjoy the hockey antidotes he s gather over three decades in the NHL, his writing has the uncanny ability to suck the drama out of nearly every situation and story While this ability probably served him well as a referees, it s not great as an author The writing isn t very good, and his parenthetical additions quickly become both obnoxious and burdensome he ll even add things that are completely pointless, like I just did wi [...]


    6. My boyfriend bought this because he enjoys reading hockey memoirs So do I, come to that, but I don t think I would have bought this one He was less than thrilled with this one because it had a lot of moralizing, particularly religious I m getting the same impression, but it does still have some funny and interesting stories Between the Lines may be a better book, if you just want a look at hockey from an official s perspective.Okay, page 96 and the style and content are starting to annoy me too [...]


    7. I very much enjoyed this book, being an NHL hockey fan and a Kerry Fraser fan There are some great stories about some of the best players in the league, and a lot of insight into what officials have to deal with He does sounds a bit preachy and gives himself a huge amount of credit but it is an autobiography so it wasn t really unexpected I think it would be an enjoyable read for someone who wants a behind the scenes look at Kerry Fraser s life as an official.


    8. Apparently Kerry Fraser was a legendary NHL referee who recently retired Is there such a thing After he retired, he wrote a book about his last season and his greatest experiences in the NHL If you re crazy about hockey, this is a about a 2 star read For the rest of us 1 star is about it.


    9. I ve always liked Kerry Fraser He was a good referee almost always fair, and one that let the players decide the game On a trip up to Canada I saw this book in Chapters and immediately snatched it up While the stories are interesting, and there is a lot of detail in some of them, the writing style made it difficult for me to really get into.


    10. This is one of the best hockey books I ve read in a while It gave some insight about what actually goes on on the ice between players and officials Kerry Fraser talks about his most memorable NHL arenas and his most moments in each of them He references some games that I remember watching on TV, as well as ones that I attended I recommend this to any hockey fan.


    11. Overall a very good book Fraser shares his unique perspective of a game that most of us see from our chouches or if we re really lucky, from the ice The anecdotes and history and personal stories shared by one of the best at his profession were very interesting At times it felt a bit melodramatic but I give a pass to a guy who isn t a writer by trade.


    12. It was interesting to see the game from a referee s perspective, but the way he wove the thread of his last game through the entire book and I mean the entire book got a little tedious I d be interested to see what other people think of it It was par for the course for memoirs of hockey careers I sure think he d be a neat guy to meet.


    13. As a young hockey referee, I enjoyed reading this book I often find autobiographies hard to read, but Kerry is a really great author and I would often laugh out loud as I read the stories that he shared about his time as a referee in the NHL.


    14. Kerry Fraser chronicles his 33 years as an NHL official Fraser was always my favorite NHL referee I loved reading stories about all the players I knew while growing up watching hockey A must read for anyone who loves hockey.



    15. I m a referee, and Kerry puts out some great stories and amazing information A must read for anyone who is interested in the life of a referee.



    16. Some interesting stories from his years of officiating but completely ruined by how egotistical he is Score for the book would be higher if not for this fact.


    17. The player anecdotes are fascinating, and helps the reader get over the revelation that Kerry Fraser is kinda smug and arrogant.



    18. Mr Fraser gets a little sentimental at times but tells stories of some of the behind the scenes moments you would expect a referee to have.




    19. Mr Fraser is a class act through and through He gives you a true inside story on officiating in the NHL and the hard work it takes to get and stay there Good read.


    20. Thought I would like this better, but Kerry came off to me as a biased prick at times and was very preachy Still, a cool behind the scenes look at the NHL I loved so much as a kid.
