About the Author

Don Shelby is widely considered one of the most accomplished local TV journalists in the country. Off camera, he has been involved in organized basketball as a player, coach, and advocate since 1960. Inducted into Indiana's Delaware County Athletic Hall of Fame in 2003, Shelby has been compiling stories of pivotal basketball game - those he has played, and those that have inspired him - for over twenty years.

Written with the same humor and compassion that have made Shelby a broadcasting legend, The Season Never Ends proves once and for all that the fundamental principles of basketball are the fundamental principles of life.

Purchased as a gift for son. Heard about the book and knew the author did good research on anything he has written for his news and his other writings. His stories are from the heart and reflect his life. He is also an excellent speaker. I am sure my son will enjoy reading the book as he has been a player, coach and father as well.

The stories in this book are "true to life". What a great way to demonstrate how life on the court mimic's life in the real world.
