What other coaches say about Fine Tuning Your Fast Break:

"...there are many, many ideas and concepts in Fine Tuning Your Fast Break that I’d never considered or thought of in the particular way Kevin has of explaining them. That’s been my experience when reading any of Kevin’s previous books. He always makes you think about the game in a little different way, and he gives you some real nuggets that help you do what you do better."

Coach Doug Porter of the Olivet Nazarene University Lady Tigers, National Scoring Champions 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011 and 2012

“His thought provoking approach makes for an easy read and will definitely stimulate thought and, most likely, change the way you go about coaching offense.”

Rusty Rogers – Two-time NAIA Division II Women’s Basketball National Championship Coach and Two-time NAIA National Coach of the Year
