This paperback book tells you the basics of basketball and adds inspirational words and stories. It was put out by a Christian organization formed in 1966 called "Athletes in Action".
This book would be good for anyone wanting to gain a better understanding of the game of Basketball.
Athletes in Action tell their own story in "A Very Long Season", and then the book launches into the game "What Basketball is all About", "History", and "Basic Rules". Then follow the positions, the arts, and the shots.
All aspects of the game are outlined in detail with historical and contemporary photographs.
