5.0 étoiles sur 5Fantastic behind the scenes book!10 février 2003

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 5Could not put this book down!!!!!14 février 2003
Par Jeff Podell - Publié sur Amazon.com
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!!!!!!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5Really good read1 mars 2003
Par Marcus Petrie - Publié sur Amazon.com
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.

This is a great book if you like hoops. I cannot believe that Curtis got all of the inside access at the four schools. The book is well-written and makes fascinating reading. Now, I have a much better understanding of what coaches go through. Highly recommend to any fan.
