This book is a tremendous achievement. It will move you to laugh, to cry and to shake your head in disbelief. The author deserves heaps of praise for eloquently bringing this engrossing, true story to the public.
The other reviewers are entirely wrong about their remarks regarding the female narration. A woman's voice works here because one of the main characters spends the bulk of his time yelling. If a man read this it would result in either an emotionless reading or constant shouting at the listener. Beyond that, this is a story with a multitude of male basket-ball playing characters. Choosing a woman to narrate allows for each of these characters to have their own identities in a way that a man narrating would not. There's no risk that the voice becomes one of the primary characters in the story.
This is a story about people, not about basketball. One need not know the sport well to be moved by this book. This is an important story with moments that will stick with you.

I rated this book a five because ,even though a written documentary , it was very entertaining .
Additionally , I found myself rooting for and hating some of the people.
The book provided a glimpse into what it take to become a top b ball player and what I might need to help my son with for him to succeed with his basketball goals.
1/2 way into the book I immediate researched and hired a trainer for my son and some of his friends . Some people had an issue with a female reader if a male author . Foolishness the narrator was great
