1. November 2011
Twenty-five years after it spent sixteen weeks atop the New York Times bestseller list, A Season on the Brink remains the most celebrated basketball book ever written. Granted unprecedented access to legendary coach Bob Knight and the Indiana Hoosiers during the 1985–86 season, John Feinstein saw and heard it all—practices, team meetings, strategy sessions, and midgame huddles—as the team worked to return to championship form. The result is an unforgettable chronicle that not only captures the drama and pressure of big-time college basketball but also paints a vivid portrait of a complex, brilliant coach as he walks the fine line between genius and madness.

Why is A Season on the Brink the bestselling sports book of all time? The answer is easy: Bobby Knight. Audaciously brilliant, exasperatingly volatile, and never boring, the Indiana University basketball coach is Greek drama and comedy neatly wrapped in a red sweater. Like all high-strung people, Knight is particularly interesting when things don't go according to his playbook. John Feinstein had the good fortune to follow Knight and his Hoosiers through a difficult 1985-86 campaign; that Feinstein could watch that season attached to Knight's hip gives A Season on the Brink its sights and its sounds. That such closeness allowed entry into Knight's heart gives the book its fury. The combination is irresistible. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.


Sports Illustrated’s #6 Sports Book of All Time

“Nothing less than extraordinary.” The Chicago Tribune

“Riveting . . . Perhaps the best basketball book ever written.” —Dayton Daily News

A Season on the Brink is not just my favorite sports book of all time, but one of my favorite books in general. Everything that’s important and disturbing about basketball can be understood through its details.” —Chuck Klosterman

“The best writer of sports books in America today.” The Boston Globe

“Bob Knight still curses the day he granted the author unfettered access to his program. Feinstein's year as an honorary Hoosier yielded an unsparing portrait of Indiana’s combustible coach.” Sports Illustrated

“One of the best sportswriters alive.” USA Today

5.0 von 5 Sternen Just Read It! 6. Juli 2000
This is one of the classics of sports literature.
16,441 on the Amazon best seller list! Come on folks, this is reference material for anyone who claims to be a college hoops fan. Get behind the scenes of one of the most infamous coaches of all time. Gives a very strong sense for the life and experiences of players on a blue chip hoops program. I'm absolutely not joking, this is a must read for sports fans. Feinstein's the best documentary sports writer of our time and this book is the crown jewel of his works.

I thought this book was great when I first read it as a teen-ager and I'm looking forward to re-reading it after the Neil Reed revelations. It is incredibly powerful because Feinstein doesn't pull any punches in portraying Knight as an excellent coach but really a power driven bully in a state and a university where he can get away with it. It's amazing that he hasn't completely unravelled between 1985 and present day.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Showing the other side of Knight 6. Dezember 1999
Bob Knight is a basketball genius. Yet, after a few outbursts and admitted overreactions...the media has attacked every thing he has done. Feinstein shows how Bob Knight is a mastermind at what he does..he's a general on the court and he expects perfection in return. A must read for anyone who thinks Bobby Knight is only about throwing chairs...he also shapes lives.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Like being an assistant coach for Knight 22. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
A very interesting read which lets you get in the head of Bobby Knight and see what it's like to be a part of his team for one season. The answer: it's hell. You see Knight as both a brilliant coach and student of the game, an incredibly dedicated friend, and an out-of-control maniac.

These are just some of the qualitites that The General exhibits and imparts to his players. I'm sorry to say it, but IU is one of the last honest programs around. Don't go to class, you don't play. Players leave Knight's program a better person. And there is not a more loyal person on the face of the Earth than R.M.K. I'll admit, the game may be passing him by, but it is a shame that it is. When Knight's coaching and teaching methods are "out of style," it is a bad sign for college basketball.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great book about a great, but flawed, man 4. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
It's been some years since I read the book, but I recall it vividly. I know that Bob Knight hated it and Feinstein, but I've always thought that the book is a fair portrayal of a great man who is not perfect (and who is). Just as many a man becomes a man from his Marine basic training, so does Bob Knight mould his boys into men, stressing what is important both on and off the court. I would love for my son to be coached by him. What harm are a few "F" words going to do? Another reason that I enjoyed the book so much is that I was a Cleveland State fan at the time and the Indiana season ends with a defeat at the hands of an unknown, but very talented, Cleveland State team.
