A fraction of a second can be the difference between a one-timer finding the back of the net and a blocked shot that starts transition the other way. In the fast and fluid game of hockey, time and space drive success. But hockey analytics hasn’t appreciated these two most important factors. It hasn’t respected the complexity of the game…until now. Backed by the findings of an original study never before released to the public, Hockey Analytics demonstrates that—whether it is a failed pinch in the offensive zone, a missed rotation in the defensive zone or other blunder—the vast majority of goal...

This is an impressive book that will greatly improve anyone's understanding of hockey.

Although I think casual hockey fans who are not into the analytics craze will be turned off by the title, they shouldn't be as I think they would like the book as well.I have never played or coached hockey but I do gamble on it professionally using statistical models.
green quote
This book was a huge help to me and I was able to make a big improvement to how I modeled and bet hockey using a couple of the concepts in this book - concepts that I have never seen discussed anywhere else.
green quote
For me the book has paid for itself thousands of times over already and if you like to bet hockey or play fantasy hockey, this book will be valuable even if it doesn't contain any information specifically devoted to those topics.The only thing I would change is that the authors refer too often to other sports such as basketball and soccer.
green quote
I think that is probably because they have an extensive background in basketball analytics, and their basketball analytics book is great as well.

Jane's Review: Should I buy this product?

Jane's Review

It depends on what you are looking for. Let's go over the reasons why buying this hockey book now is a good idea, and also things to consider before you decide on this item.

1. This hockey book has very positive reviews on the internet

Some people have a great experience with a product, while some are unlucky and get a defected item and have to go through the whole process of returning them. Since people have different experiences about a product due to various reasons, don't read too much into one good or bad review. Reading multiple reviews with different ratings can help you picture how good/bad the product generally is.

This hockey book has very positivereviews on the internet, and based on current trends, it's likely that people will like this hockey book more a week later. I summarized what fans and haters say about this product above in the good/ok/bad table, so don't forget to read those since they paint the whole picture! And of course, if you want to read more detailed reviews, many of them are on Amazon!See More Reviews on AmazonSee More Reviews on Amazon

2. The price might go up, so buy now if you need this!

Price is one of the most important factors in making a purchase decision. I analyzed the price of this product in four parts: its recent price change, when it was most expensive/cheapest, its price volatility, and a price prediction I made, just in case you want to wait.

First off, let's talk about its recent price change. The price of this product has not changed from April 29, 2020 to June 17, 2020, which means that it has steady and healthy supply!

Next, we need to look at its highest price and lowest price. Historically, the highest price point for this hockey book was $19.95, and the lowest price point was $4.99. The current price is greater than it has ever been. If the best price is what you're looking for, this could be potentially be a bad time to purchase.

What about its availability and price volatility? This is another aspect we have to dig into before buying something. I haven't seen this product being unavailable since I started reviewing this product. So as far as the availability goes, this product is solid. If you plan to make a repeat purchase of this kind of item, this is your product! In addition, I've seen a small amount of price movement with this product. From what I've seen, the price is likely to move up or down by an average of 7.76% at a time.

Considering all this, will the price go up or down in a week? Based on past price points, I expect the price to be $21.40 a week from now. It might be best to purchase as soon as possible before the price becomes too high.

3. Make sure CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform is a brand you can trust

CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform doesn't attract too many people on Amazon among other hockey book brands. I couldn't find any YouTube videos, Reddit posts, or news articles that directly mention this product, but this can be just me not looking hard enough. Will update this when I have more info!

One thing to be careful about here is that I'm not verifying if this product's maker is a household name or not. This section is more focused on whether this is proven enough by its consumers, whether people actually love this product.

4. Manufacturer has generally positive reviews on their other products

The maker of a product is another factor you want to definitely consider before you buy anything. What if there is a piece missing or there is some defect in the product? With anything you buy online, there is a small chance of this happening. But don't worry too much, because Amazon has an amazing 30-day refund policy (Amazon❤️). Still, you want to make sure that the manufacturer or the seller has been helpful in resolving this kind of problem and/or has been helpful to its customers about general product inquiries. The manufacturer of this product, CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform (), has generally positive reviews on the internet. It's generally a good sign if the manufacturer has good reviews overall. If your purchase decision heavily involves how well they make their products and treat their customers, and if you like this product, I'd go with this product!

5. There are other options, but don't look further if you're looking for a product with best reviews

image/svg+xml CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform Other similar brands: Triumph Books Penguin Random House Canada Penguin Audio

I found 3 brands that have similar products like this one: Triumph Books, Penguin Random House Canada, and Penguin Audio. 'If you're looking for a cheaper alternative, you might want to look at a similar product from Triumph Books. If you're looking for a hockey book with best reviews, you're looking at that product! Within its category, it has received the highest customer satisfaction score. If your primary concern is whether the product is popular and well known, a similar product from Penguin Audio I linked below is a better option. I linked all the similar products in the similar products section so please check them out! Or you can check other similar products on Amazon, too.
