Publisher's Summary

Sports Illustrated's chief NBA writer, Jack McCallum, only planned to spend the preseason with the Phoenix Suns as an "assistant coach" - and then write a story about his experiences. Instead, he stayed on with the Suns throughout their exciting and controversial 2005-2006 season. Gaining access to everything from locker-room chats with superstar point guard Steve Nash, to coaches' meetings with maverick coach Mike D'Antoni, McCallum learned what makes this wildly popular, innovative, and international assemblage of talented players and brilliant coaches tick - making Seven Seconds or Less an all-access look at one of the greatest shows in sports.

Robot Narration with Clueless Word Emphasis

The writing is incredible, the book is incredible. The narration is pretty bad.

Names in the story, 2nd nature to NBA fans, are butchered. Emphasis in sentences, especially those intended to be humorous, are absolutely lost on the narrator. Also, there are quotes in the beginning of each chapter representing a key quote within the chapter itself which are cited in the book (ie "blah blah blah." - Person) in which the narrator does not say who says it, so it sounds completely out of context, and doubly weird when repeated later in the chapter.

Please re-record this.

The narration is just awful. The book is great but so much humor is lost. It's just tough to listen to.
