The author is way too young to have chosen the topic, but he did a good job historically and especially covering the New York City connections of this team. Especially good are the insights he elicited from team MVP center Lenny Rosenbluth, a lean scoring machine from the city.

I am a big Tar Heel fan and this book solidified this. I did not know much about the 1957 team and this book enlighted me.
