Pavel Bure was always destined for hockey greatness. A short book aimed at younger readers, the author of Pavel Bure, Kerry Banks, is careful not to promise too much. Then, he turns around and over-delivers on that promise. In 44 pages including photos, we get a brief but complete look at the career (to date, as Pavel Bure was still playing when this book went to press) of the Russian Rocket – and among other things, it explains how he got the nickname. He has scored more than fifty goals five times in his career and is one of the game's most exciting performers and most mysterious characters. ISBN13: 9781550549201.

In his first season with the NHL, Pavel Bure won the Calder Memorial Trophy as top rookie. Eight years after his debut, the man known as the "Russian Rocket" racked up two 60-goal season and two 100-plus point years, despite absences caused by injuries and contract disputes.

If you were to ask a scientist to design the perfect hockey scoring machine, you would likely get something that looks a lot like Pavel Bure.

This book is the true meaning of perfection and excellence. He may not be Wayne Gretzky, but Bure could beat him in a speed competition easily. Through the tough times of growing up in Russia, to the glorious days of the Olympics, Pavel Bure is truly a hero and an overall nice guy too. Everyone should read this book, because I sure enjoyed it a lot, and if you know the game of hockey, you will appreciate it even more.

If you want to find out who the Russian Rocket is you'll have to read this book. I would recommend this autobiography for anyone to read if they have an interest in the NHL. This book gives you details on what actually took place for the Russians to be able to come and play hockey in the NHL.

It wasn't as good as I thought it'd be or that the PBFC made it out to be. I loved some of the stories, they were just so good and there's a few little facts that I didn't know but whether they're true or not is yet to be decided. I loved the pics!

Amazing book! Pavel Bure was an animal on the ice and this book tells his story of how hard he worked to achieved his goal. This book talks about his amazing hockey skill and his unmatched speed along with his really good personality. This book starts at Bures childhood and continues on to the rest of his life. With all the detail in the book, you can see how much he loved the game and how hard he worked to achieve his goal in the NHL. I could not wait to sit down and read this book. Any sports fan would love this book in my opinion. Motivational and inspiring to play hockey to the best of your ability. Would recommend to any hockey fan.

Although the author really didn't have much access to Pavel himself, he fills in lots of the gaps and dispells a lot of the myths about the most exciting player to put on a Nux jersey (sorry, Markus Naslund...you're great but you don't lift me out of my seat like Pavel did).
This book only confirms my thoughts on writers like Tony Gallagher and Al Strachan--guys who never let the facts get in the way of a story. It also is an eye opener about how Nux mgmt operates and how the Nux WILL NEVER WIN A CUP until they bag this whole Quinn and his acolytes (Burke and now Nonis) hiring policy.
It hurts to read some of this as what mgmt did during Pavel's era is jaw droppingly stupid from bad trades post-1994 to being so chintzy about contract negotiations with key members of that Cup run team and I can now understand why Pavel finally wanted out. And to those out there always talking about how "great" a place to live Vancouver is, read this and wake up to the fact Vancouver is still a backwater and not some sort of cultural and enlightened "world-class" city.
If you're looking as to why Pavel Bure appears to be such a "selfish little (...)" (as quoted by a certain Canadian famous hockey personality), then you should read this. The readers are treated to potential reasons as to why Bure acts like he does. He's got his reasons like anyone else does, one of them being he grew up in the former Soviet Union and their media laws towards sports are very different from that of North Americas. Another one being that he is an introvert that simply doesn't like to be bothered.
I love this book, I can just pick it up and start reading from anywhere because its so well-written. Some of the pictures are neat, like the one of him from the Soviet Union days.
There is also some other notes on other current NHL stars like Alexander Mogilny, Sergei Fedorov, and also delves into the Bure brothers relationship with their father Vladimir-who is now estranged from the family for mysterious reasons not given.
There is even some Russian Mafia rumors in this so if you're into that whole extortion stuff then you might like that too.
Either way, its a very good read.
