The Most Action Packed BOOKS of 2009!!!
"With its breakneck tempo and raw candor,
OPEN will be read and cherished for years.
A treat for ardent fans, it will also captivate readers
who know nothing about tennis. Like Agassi’s game,
it sets a new standard for grace, style, speed, and power."
"At long last the great book on Bird and Magic—
from their own vantage point, told from behind the scenes,
inside huddles, and most importantly, from their inner hearts.
It's a story of brilliance, brilliantly told with new insights
and revealing details about two men who evolved
from being bitter competitors into lifelong friends."
"There is only one writer on the planet who possesses
enough basketball knowledge and passion
to write the definitive book on the NBA.
BILL SIMMONS, the from-the-womb hoops addict
known to millions as ESPN.com’s Sports Guy,
is that writer.
And The Book of Basketball is that book."
