“An interesting and informative account. . . . provides the reader with a solid evaluation of the different issues. . . . Another strength of the book is how Edge includes different theories and connects them to the labor dispute. This smattering of theory is what distinguishes Edge’s book. . . .An excellent introduction to the topic. . . . it could be an appropriate background text for an undergraduate class on professional sport.”

“Anyone wanting to come to an informed opinion on the accusations and counteraccusations being lobbed around on sports talk shows should spend a few hours with . . . Red Line, Blue Line, Bottom Line.”
Quill & Quire Read review

"Before you make a final decision on which side to support in the current NHL labour dispute, you MUST read this book. . . .  The author, Marc Edge . . . meticulously examines the history of the NHL and its dealings with the players. It has been done before in books such as Net Worth but not with the precision, clarity and surgical skill Edge demonstrates. . . . He takes very complex legal and economic matters and makes them understandable without oversimplifying. . . . A fantastic book."
Hockey Forum Read Review

“A fine recent book -- Red Line, Blue Line, Bottom Line by former Herald journalist Marc Edge -- makes the point that increased revenue sharing between NHL teams would help remove the bogeyman of the free-spending, maverick owner who disrupts the salary grid. . . . (A) revealing argument.”
Calgary Herald Read Review

“Having done his homework on the business history of the four major sports, Edge does a commendable job of illustrating how owners exploited pro athletes for decades. He also does a solid job of detailing the emergence of labor lawyers and agents.”
Fort Worth Star-Telegram Read review

“A timely guide to hockey's holy war. . . . Well researched, tightly written. . . . Where Edge's book excels is in the perspective he brings to the subject. . . . Straightforward, no frills. . . . Edge has done an excellent job.”
Andrew's Stars Page Read review

“It takes real bravery for a writer to wade into the National Hockey League's current labour woes. . . . This timely little study tackles all of the important questions head-on.”
