Published to mark the club's 50th season in the National Hockey League, The Philadelphia Flyers at 50 sets a new standard for contemporary sports history. It tells the story of a remarkable hockey club with passion and detail. On the ice, in the dressing room and behind the scenes, this 600-page large-format illustrated book documents how the Flyers and their fans have maintained the passion that is their hallmark through great successes, valiant losses and even withering tragedies. Building on his 1996 best-seller Full Spectrum, writer Jay Greenberg invested three years interviewing 263 people who have told the team's story with pride and candor, revealing, in some cases for the first time, factors that shaped the franchise. Trades, retirements, injuries, untimely deaths, tough decisions and shift-by-shift game action combine to reveal what it means to be a Flyer. “It's an honor to wear this logo,” said current captain Claude Giroux. “Being a Flyer meant everything to me,” said Mark Recchi, a feeling echoed by Cup-winner Andre Dupont when he said, “They gave me a chance to be part of history."
Includes a message from owner Ed Snider who passed away on April 11, 2016, as well as profiles of 50 Flyer heroes and descriptions of the club's 50 most important wins and significant events This comprehensive book has it all.

The Philadelphia Flyers at 50
I'm not sure how any reader who was paying attention could feel the book is in any way "deceptive": 1) The book is intended as a 50th anniversary companion to the original Full Spectrum, which covered the 1967-96 period in great detail. 2) The new
book contains a page with instructions for those who don't own Full Spectrum to obtain a free PDF of the book to accompany the new volume, and 3) the new book has lengthy 50th anniversary sections on the top 50 figures in Flyers history, 50 greatest victories, 50 key moments, etc. that span the entire 50 years.

Together, Flyers at 50 along with Full Spectrum provide THE definitive history of the Flyers, season by season and viewed across the entire 50 seasons.
