Great instructional book. Best yet. 20 Nov. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Teresa Weatherspoon's Basketball for Girls is not only the best instructional book for basketball that I have read, but it also gives girls an inside look at one of today's positive role models, which has been sorely needed.

Recommended reading for every girl! 17 Mar. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
What a fun book! "Spoon" has always been an inspiration (so what if I don't have her jump shot). The skills she teaches in the book are wonderfully presented but what makes this book special is her inspirational comments about teamwork, success and family. It's great to have a book just for girls, and with the success of the WNBA it's about time! Even if you are not into playing basketball, it makes great reading for someone who just wants to watch and appreciate the game. And this 30+ year old girl loved it! I can't wait to buy copies for my nieces.

Fascinating woman, good BBall 4 Sept. 2001
By guy richardson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Weatherspoon is one of the most admirable players to come down the pike since the days of Bill Bradley. The book -- with lots of illustrative pictures -- is aimed at teaching younger players, but has good fundamental advice for players of any age (or gender, for that matter). What makes it fascinating are the set-off pieces by Weatherspoon that give an insight into her character. If you like her now, you'll come away liking her even more.
