A really good profile of Bill Bradley in college, before he'd go on become a NBA player and politician. McPhee does a great job capturing how thoughtful, diligent, smart, and exceptional Bradley was compared to his college peers at Princeton and other schools.
My only real criticism with the book is that much of the writing on basketball feels horribly dated. McPhee wrote this book before much good writing on basketball existed, so his explanation of plays and shots feels clunky. I wish he would've updated it, even in the 1980s when the vernacular had changed, to make it more readable to contemporary basketball fans.
