The Basketball Coach's Bible claims to be essential reading for basketball coaches, whether they're coaching your daughter's fourth-grade team or a Division I college team. Endorsements are included from both youth coaches and well-known professional and college coaches such as Phil Jackson and Jim Calhoun. Can any book really cover a topic that broadly and do a good job? The resounding answer in this case is yes. Mr. Goldstein starts from the premise that if you learn the fundamentals well, the rest of the game comes along naturally. The first seven short chapters of the book lay out his philosophy of the game and coaching, providing a blueprint to follow.

The remainder of the book has two parts, multipart lessons that focus on individual skills such as dribbling and passing, and another series of lessons on team offense and defense. Each lesson begins with a simple concept and then adds more complex features as your players' skills progress. Charts accompany each lesson and detail the prerequisite skills, time needed, and effort that is required.

This book is one of those rare breeds that live up to its hype. One drawback is that younger players may not have enough practice time to complete all of the drills you would like, but those you do choose will be winners. --Rob Frankland

From the Publisher:

The Nitty-Gritty Basketball Series offer a remarkably detailed, painstaking organized approach to teaching and mastering basketball skills. Utilizing the techniques of programmed learning, Goldstein breaks down basketball's many teachable skills (shooting, passing, dribbling, cutting, rebounding, etc.) into their component parts and supplies incrementally more difficult lessons for each task. The lessons themselves, whether at the most elementary level (holding the ball in the fingertips) or the most complex (playing defense in the low post), are practical, well presented, and part of a unified whole. Directions are clear, and diagrams accompanying each lesson, though sometimes dense, are always decipherable.

The two "Bibles", one addressed to coaches, the other to players, contain much identical material rearranged to fit the differing audience. There is logic to the rearrangement, though cost-conscious libraries could get by with one volume.the player's guide will attract more readers, but coaches will profit most form Goldstein's dry but comprehensive approach.The need for 'fundamentals' is a rallying cry at every level of competition: these books deliver the goods. Mostly from Booklist review
