The Book of Basketball: The NBA According to The Sports Guy

Product Description

Imported from USA

Review
------

“[A] slam dunk.”—USA Today

“The work of a true fan . . . It might just represent the next phase of sports commentary.”—The Atlantic

“May be one of those literary lollapaloozas that Simmons’s fans must buy.”—The New York Times

“Wildly prolific, ceaselessly witty, harmlessly crass, and generally wise, Simmons has built an everydude empire by
triangulating the trashy pop-culture futon talk of Chuck Klosterman and the stats-heavy philosophizing of Malcolm
Gladwell.”—The Village Voice

“This is just plain fun. . . . The true NBA fan will dive into this hefty volume and won’t resurface for about a
week.”—Booklist (starred review)

“The book flows much like Mr. Simmons’s ESPN columns. . . . Opinion gushes out of him. But he backs it up with equal
parts serious research and off-angle observations. . . . He has produced enough provocative arguments to fuel barstool
arguments far into the future.”—The Wall Street Journal

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
