Product Description & Reviews
Recounts the 1985-1986 basketball season at Indiana University, describes the complex personality of coach Bob Knight, and examines the coaching methods which make him one of the best of all time Why is A Season on the Brink the bestselling sports book of all time? The answer is easy: Bobby Knight. Audaciously brilliant, exasperatingly volatile, and never boring, the Indiana University basketball coach is Greek drama and comedy neatly wrapped in a red sweater.

That such closeness allowed entry into Knight's heart gives the book its fury. The combination is irresistible.

If there’s one thing Charles Barkley knows, it’s the crying need for honest, open discussion in this country—the more uncomfortable the subject, the more necessary the dialogue. And if the discussion leader can be as wise, irreverent, (occasionally) profane and (consistently) funny as Charles Barkley, so much the better.
