This second edition includes a CD-ROM that brings the instruction to life. Players and coaches have the option of using the interactive DC-ROM to supplement the instructions, photos and illustrations from the book. The two-disk CD-ROM set includes video footage so coaches can view live demonstrations of the drills described in the book. This multimedia set covers the entire realm of basketball skills: basic positioning, moving without the ball, ballhandling, shooting, perimeter moves, post moves, defence, rebounding and setting screens. This book should be of interest to every player wishing to learn and every coach striving to teach the fundamentals, and with the CD-ROM, it should be easier to learn and understand the skills and drills and better execute them on the court.
