Way of the Puck

Way of the Puck

By Eric Anderson

Synopsis

What is it like to be a champion at a sport nobody knows about? A caricaturist, a clinical psychologist, a Buddhist wanderer, and an importer of wind-up musical jewelry boxes battle each other for air hockey world supremacy—and battle the world to save their beloved sport from extinction.

Way of the Puck examines air hockey’s brief but tumultuous history and mythology—from its unlikely connection to NASA during the Cold War, to the contemporary brand of ESPN-ready, high-octane, professional level play, to its current existential crisis. Explore air hockey’s tangled roots and discover a passionate community of players who devote their lives to the mastery of a forgotten arcade game.

Open your mind. Air hockey still loves you!
