Did you know that basketball was originally played with 18 players on the court at once? This fact and several other lost facts about the early years of basketball are compiled in this simple and easy reading title. James Naismith gives a very humble perspective of how the sport he had invented grew between 1891 and approximately 1936. Several interesting facts are given to lay the foundation of the game today. The book left me intersted in finding out more about the history of basketball and the creator of the sport. This book is only 189 pages long and goes by very quickly. I would suggest this book to anyone who is interested in the sport or trivia. The last sentence of the book even gives a little advice that anyone can use in his or her everyday life.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
