Feinstein also brings us inspiring and dramatic stories from the people behind the scenes: from the officials and referees to the scouts and ticket-scalpers. With the unflinching eye of a seasoned reporter and the remarkable skill of a true storyteller, Feinstein exposes the driving forces behind one of the most revered events in American sports.« less
I loved this book. I read it in about 3 days. If you are a casual fan of college basketball you will enjoy the insiders view of this interesting group of players, coaches, and the whole lifestyle of the college game. To me the college game is full of spirit, isn't as commercialized, and is more "real". This book captures that feeling very well. I recommend it highly.
