Editorial Reviews

The Basketball Highway
When you are trying to achieve greatness there is no shortcut that will get you there.  Dr. Krause and Roger Pimm painstakingly researched the coaches and at all levels.  We get anecdotes of all the coaches from family, friends, coaches, and players.  We get a comprehensive review of each coaches major contributions and impact on the game.  We get a clinic in every chapter and we gets a look into the drills and systematic teaching used by each of these coaches. Most coaches pay $100 every year to attend a clinic to hear a half dozen very good coaches.  For about a third that cost you get the opportunity to hear the "Voices of 29 Hall of Fame Coaches.  Every coach should have this book in their library and we give it a resounding five out of five hoops.  Click here for full review
