Battle of the Basketball Books

A recent entry in Shelf-Awareness, a daily e-newsletter published by the Independent Booksellers Association, cited a playoff among some of the best basketball books written ("March Madness: McPhee Leads Basketball Book Playoffs," March 13, 2009). Here’s a few to browse during March Madness:

Last Dance: Behind the Scenes at the Final Four by John Feinstein

A Sense of Where You Are: A Profile of Bill Bradley at Princeton by John McPhee

In the Year of the Bull: Zen, Air and the Pursuit of Sacred and Profane Hoops by Rick Telander
