Editorial Reviews

The Basketball Highway
... These authors have done us a favor by producing a book that focused more on the scientific laws of learning by age.  It's mind boggling that coaches spend a small fortune to buy the latest "fancy fifty full court defense" video but rarely take a look back at their own teaching methodology as the source failure.  If you are teaching youth players of any of these ages, this book should be required reading.  We give it 4 Hoops out of 5 for the teaching details, and 5 out of 5 for it's message.  Pay attention youth coaches this book is for you!
