Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0764552481, Paperback)Basketball for Dummies is another slam dunk in the Dummies series. Former Notre Dame head coach Digger Phelps begins with the fundamentals and quickly moves up court from there. By the final buzzer, you'll have pulled down pointers on how to play the game, how to look good on the court, how to coach it, how to watch it, how to strategize, and even how to talk trash on the playground. From H-O-R-S-E to Hoosier hysteria to the signature moves--Grant Hill's between-the-legs hesitation, Michael Jordan's fadaeway--of the greats of the NBA, Phelps has come up with a game plan that takes the game seriously, and teaches its nuances a helluva lot less painfully than running wind sprints between the foul lines.

From players and personalities in the game to rules, regulations, and equipment, this hands-on, friendly guide is a slam-dunk of information and insight for anyone who loves basketball.
