"This book, exciting in classification (social science), was very intriguing, by means of delving into the [mind]s of the NBA players 'today and yesterday'". The Author shocked (or at least lost me) me with his depiction of himself in the scenarios he wrote about, which included NBA players. Good job Chris Ballard.
