This book gave me some insight into some of the players, coaches and history of women's basketball. I must admit, even as a fan I had made some assumptions and stereotypes that I found to be inaccurate after reading this book. Not only did it tell the story of the Seattle Storm's development, it brought out the human element of some of the players and coaches. There are even some tear-jerking elements to the story. A good story!

If there is one book to read to get the history of the formation of the WNBA and some of its principle players, this is the one. Though the location is set in Seattle and the focus in on the formation and later success of the Seattle Storm franchise, Evans takes us on a journey through previous incarnations of women's basketball leagues, touches on personalities that helped make the sport what it is today, and is not afraid to touch on serious and controversial issues surrounding the sport and its growth.
The nature of the author being a veteran sportswriter comes through with her brevity in the use of the language (she does not use a lot of flowery language), while still maintaining the impact of her meaning.
I recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in the WNBA, women's basketball and the history of the league.

I bought this book after hearing fellow Storm fans rave about it, and it's true, this is a GREAT book. It goes over the issues of women in sports, homophobia etc. Plus, there's great info on the Storm and it's history.
