Overview

Bill Bradley, a New York Knick pro-basketball player in the '60s and '70s and a United States Senator from New Jersey from 1982 until 2000 (among his many other accomplishments) writes here about his love of basketball from the root on up--from a simple game in an empty court where there is nothing but you and the sound of your Converse on the shiny, wooden floor to the euphoric high that is possible and that any athlete knows when a team moves together as a cohesive whole. Bradley's writing here is wholly accessible and for those not interested in basketball, there are lessons to be gleaned here about life, teamwork and leadership. Bradley's style is simple and stays on track, creating a slim philosophical treatise that all of us can benefit from and relate to. Here is a book about life, memory, experience, and the filtering of our experience and what it means to us. An enjoyable and unforgettable read for all readers.
