A season on the brink: a year with Bob Knight and the Indiana Hoosiers
A Season on the Brink chronicles the basketball season that John Feinstein spent following the Indiana Hoosiers and their fiery coach, Bob Knight. Knight granted Feinstein an unprecedented inside look at college basketball-with complete access to every moment of the season. Feinstein saw and heard it all-practices, team meetings, strategy sessions, and midgame huddles-during Knight's struggle to avoid a losing season. A Season on the Brink not only captures the drama and pressure of big-time college basketball but paints a vivid portrait of a complex, brilliant coach walking a fine line between genius and madness. John Feinstein has written for Sports Illustrated, The Washington Post, The Sporting News, and Inside Sports and is currently the main feature writer for The National. He has won twelve U.S. Basketball Writers awards. Book jacket.

Great book, did try to overshadow the good that Coach Knight does.

A great insight into a season with a college basketball team. Can only imagine how preparation, technology etc has evolved since then, but the work ethic, dedication etc won't have changed from then until now. Read full review
