Product description

Twenty-five years after it spent sixteen weeks atop the "New York Times "bestseller list, "A Season on the Brink "remains the most celebrated basketball book ever written. Granted unprecedented access to legendary coach Bob Knight and the Indiana Hoosiers during the 1985-86 season, John Feinstein saw and heard it all--practices, team meetings, strategy sessions, and midgame huddles--as the team worked to return to championship form. The result is an unforgettable chronicle that not only captures the drama and pressure of big-time college basketball but also paints a vivid portrait of a complex, brilliant coach as he walks the fine line between genius and madness.

Review quote

"A Season on the Brink" is not just my favorite sports book of all time, but one of my favorite books in general. Everything that s important and disturbing about basketball can be understood through its details. Chuck Klosterman
