You will also pick up many practical organizational and practice preparation ideas from some of our best coaches. We've provided each member of our staff with a copy. Everyone can learn from this book." --P.J. Carlesimo, Oklahoma City Thunder

Format: Paperback
This book has some of everything in it: game strategy, program organization, teaching ideas, coaching philosophy, defense, offense, you name it.

Better yet, it is readable! It comes with diagrams that are understandable and not so complicated that nobody can understand what is being shown. Some coaching books I have read have outstanding information, but the manner in which it is described is so complicated that it becomes an exercise in translation to understand the information. Coaching is about making the complicated simple. This book does that.

Beginning coaches can get stuff from this book and so can veterans. It is a valuable resource for any coach.

I like this book a lot. The only problem is that I bought it as a person who never played basketball growing up. If you're unfamiliar with the game as I was you may find yourself wishing this book had more visuals to accompany the text.

This book probably has the most complete basketball strategy for all basketball coaches. It has all the drawings and diagram for famous plays in the NBA. The only downside of this book is the size. It's pretty heavy and big (like hardcover big). I can't bring this book to a plane to read. A must read for all basketball players and coaches.

Purchased for my high schooler and it totally helps him understand and play the game. Good purchase if your kid is considering college basketball.
