5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fantastic behind the scenes book! 10 février 2003
Par Leo Stern - Publié sur
A must for any college basketball junkie. Some of the stories were simply incredible and I felt like a "fly on the wall." I loved the feeling of being right there in the locker room and getting inside the coaches' heads. I highly recommend this book!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Really good read 1 mars 2003
Par Marcus Petrie - Publié sur
This was a really terrific read. The anecdotes about players, coaches, recruiters, officials, and sports reporters are all interesting and some really funny. It's a pretty big book but it reads very fast. The politics of college basketball, from race conflicts, to academics, to the often nasty seduction of recruits, opened my eyes in a big way to these issues that usually get only brief treatment from the media. The coaches that the author followed are pretty stunning characters. I had no idea of the extent of their day-to-day obligations, or their perks. I strongly recommend this book for anybody with even a causual interest in sports. What'll stick with me most for a long time are incredible individual and group moments of pain, and victory, and laugh-out-loud humor. Definitely a good book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Could not put this book down!!!!! 14 février 2003
Par Jeff Podell - Publié sur
This book was awesome. Once I picked it up I could not stop reading it. I even broke up with my girlfriend so that I could have time to finish it. We see the games on TV but this book goes where the cameras stop. These young, slick coaches know how to get the most out of their players. Now when I see coaches like Lavin and Self on TV I know what they might say at halftime or what they are thinking during the game. As a high school prospect myself, this books tells me all the things they don't send you in recruit letters, but should. I highly recommend this to anyone who is interested in College basketball. Bravo Mr. Curtis, thanks a lot!!!!!!!
3.0 étoiles sur 5 great information -- uninspiring tale 2 janvier 2004
Par mystery lover - Publié sur
Some very interesting material told in mundane & uninspiring fashion. Either he had his facts wrong or there was sloppy editting on some occasions. Some of the sidebar explanations of refereeing and recruiting covered ground that has been covered by a variety of authors in much better fashion. We learned about the four coaches, but there was never a real emotional attachment for the most part. College hoops junkies will like it, but as another reviewer mentioned, I would definitely recommend John Feinstein's a "Season Inside", "A March to Madness" and "The Last Amateurs". Perhaps the first for insight into Alford, but I would recommend the last two the most . Especially in "The Last Amateurs" I believe that a reader will gain much more emotional attachment to the players & coaches.
If this book caused a reader to break up with a girlfriend... the girlfriend may be better off!
3.0 étoiles sur 5 Really, two books in one 13 février 2004
Par R. Banfield - Publié sur
I must be getting old...all the guys who were playing basketball when I was in college are now coaches! I was a college classmate of one of the coaches profiled in this book, so from that perspective I found it interesting, but not terribly well-written. This is really two books in one. First, Curtis profiles the "inside stories" of the coaches and teams at Iowa, Illinois, Notre Dame, and UCLA. But then, he drops in all sorts of little essays on the state of the college game today: how recruiting works, how coaches really make all their money, how influential Dick Vitale is, how the coaches network among themselves to recommend each other for jobs. Each of these could have been a decent book; both together is just a little too much. There also were a number of spelling errors and a few factual errors.
