Editorial Reviews

Review

“Sharp and insightful…. This book does a more than credible job of capturing the particular genius of Steve Nash.”
Times Colonist
 
“The details of the patriotic overtures…are fascinating…. [O]n the radar of most BC hoops fans.”
The Province 

“The writing is compelling…. Interviews with coaches and teammates, as well as Nash himself, add depth and perspective.”
Publishers Weekly

"The bio piece brings Nash's start in Victoria back to life with new relevance, with a revisionist approach based on modern sports science.... The authors unearth telling data through interviews with legendary Vikes coach Ken Shields and 1980s Vikes player Ian Hyde-Lay."
—Victoria News

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My husband always used to claim he "hated" reading (claimed his attention span was only long enough for newspaper or magazine articles), until I began buying him sports-related books as Christmas gifts. I'll never forget the look on his face the first time he picked up what he KNEW was a wrapped book ("Oh no... what did you do?" type of look.) Well, I'm happy to say that he's been pleasantly surprised how much he DOES enjoy reading when it's a subject that interests him! He told me this was a definite "5 star" book for him. I love it when I look over all of the new sports books each year, and the name of someone I know he truly admires jumps out at me. This was an easy pick for me, an enjoyable read for him.
