As a young coach, this book was exceptional in helping provide strategies for building more than just an effective team, but a program that can achieve success year after year -- the type of success that reaches far beyond the court or playing field.
Athletes who read this book will be challenged with anecdotes and ideas designed to increase understanding of how to approach maximizing one's abilities. I plan on making this book required reading for my team.
Giannini collaborates with some of the best coaching minds in college basketball to provide insights into various principles and values that come up again and again in our efforts to get the most out of our competitive experiences. Reading this book is certain to help you on your journey to learn through sports and life. Any sports library is incomplete without it.
This book does that, at a level, I've never encountered.
How think, act, attitude and much, much more.
Prior to this, my favorite bball intelligence author was the late Dick DeVenzio (Stuff, Think Like a Champion, Running the Show). Court Sense is more detailed and covers much more ground.
If you coach this sport or play or or have kids who play, this book is mandatory reading.
