“Chris Herren's Basketball Junkie is the story of what happens when a town and a family pressure a favorite son to embody their dreams, which turn out to be his nightmare. If a book can be both anguished and celebratory, this is it. Herren's account of his descent into hell and back show that beyond the bench pressing and the sprints and all the other prep work that help to create an athlete, in the end, character-building is the one drill that really matters.” ―Madeleine Blais, New York Times bestselling author of In These Girls, Hope is a Muscle
“What a story. If you read a sports book - no, any book - that sticks in your head longer than Basketball Junkie this year please let me know. This was a walk down a long, dark street to places that most of us have never been. Who knew there was a regulation basketball court in the ninth circle of hell? Fascinating.” ―Leigh Montville, New York Times bestselling author of Ted Williams and Evel: The High Flying Life of Evel Knievel
