The hockey editor for The Associated Press has compiled this record of all of Gretzky's games. This monotonous work is inflated with superfluous questions such as "Is a puck black?" and such banal quotes from the star and other players like "He's unbelievably tricky." Black-and-white newspaper photographs and colour glossies and a list of statistics accompany this unimaginative title. Fans of the superstar are far better served by the more reasonably priced paperback by Jones, The Great Gretzky (General, 1980).
