As a newcomer to women's basketball, and of course to UCONN, I loved being immersed in Goldberg's description of what was described as an "instant classic." Usually it is only a good mystery that can be described as hard to put down, but I loved reading this book and did it all too quickly. I felt a part of the team, the game and the time. It was a great read!

This is an excellent book for any fan of women's basketball or UConn. Or both. It paints a picture of the superstars that made women's basketball a part of today's sports world. For me, the faint memories of the greats that graced the UConn basketball court all came rushing back in full color. Goldberg gives you more than one game. His writing transports the reader to the glory days of UConn and the formative years of the game for women.

I just got this book today and I haven't put it down. This book does the game and the season justice. Goldberg does an excellent job telling an amazing story. I have not finished this book and I will provide a more comprehensive review later but if you love basketball you'll love this book. Rebecca Lobo is right, if you love UConn basketball, you'll love this book.

Love Uconn WBB and all the stories that surround the program. Sue Bird is one of the greatest.

I thought "Bird at the Buzzer" would be a great book for me. Iam a BIG UConn fan and I love the rivalry between UConn and Notre Dame. I also remember this game well and it was a great game and what's better than winning at the buzzer? I liked some of the facts and information I did not know. But I really didn't like the way it was written. It could have just been written chronologically and had some of the more interesting "behind the scenes" stories and facts inserted at the right time. Instead, it was confusing. Even when the outcome is known - an author can create a feeling of suspense. A good example is the film "Argo". In this book - there was no feeling of suspense at all. I would not read anything else by Jeff Goldberg
