Product description

Review

"[A] slam dunk."--USA Today

"The work of a true fan . . . It might just represent the next phase of sports commentary."--The Atlantic

"May be one of those literary lollapaloozas that Simmons's fans must buy."--The New York Times

"Wildly prolific, ceaselessly witty, harmlessly crass, and generally wise, Simmons has built an everydude empire by triangulating the trashy pop-culture futon talk of Chuck Klosterman and the stats-heavy philosophizing of Malcolm Gladwell."--The Village Voice

"This is just plain fun. . . . The true NBA fan will dive into this hefty volume and won't resurface for about a week."--Booklist (starred review)

"The book flows much like Mr. Simmons's ESPN columns. . . . Opinion gushes out of him. But he backs it up with equal parts serious research and off-angle observations. . . . He has produced enough provocative arguments to fuel barstool arguments far into the future."--The Wall Street Journal

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
