5.0 von 5 Sternen Must Read for Triangle Offense and Tex Winter Fans 29. April 2000
I started the book on Friday and finished it on a Saturday. Bender does an outstanding job covering Tex Winter's Life up to and including his joining the LA Lakers in 99. The book covers the life of a 78 year old basketball guru (the Master of the Triangle Offense) and spans his 50+ coaching years at the college and professional level.
Bender's writing style is well balanced...and is completely honest. Tex Winter's coaching philosophy is covered with frequent quotes from Tex Winter's 1962 Coaching Book, the Triple Post Offense.
Some readers may see this authorized biography as kind of a "Forest Gump of Basketball" due to it's basic story telling of Tex's as a folksy, nice guy with a willingness to tell the "unvarnished truth".
More importantly, the book serves as a useful reference tool on how a person should face conflict and live life in a stressful world. Bender writes a biography that illustrates the importance of good character, hard work, integrety, having a sense of humor, and not taking yourself too seriously.
Basketball coaches will find the book instructional with the many lessons learned from a coaching career spanning 7 decades...specifically it descibes how a coach deals in a competitive must win environment.
I especially liked how the book started off and closed.
Foreward is by Phi Jackson. MJ, Pippen and Rodman fans will enjoy the second half of the book which deals largely with the Chicago Bull years (some new stuff too). As Mickey would say, "Try it, your Like It" or better yet, just read it!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Winner! 8. Mai 2000
Bender's succinct, edgy style carries the reader through Winter's life while racing down the court with Michael Jordan, Dennis Rodman, and other NBA giants. Bender tells it like it was--no holds barred. Winter's coaching philosophy of discipline, hard work, fairness and individual intergrity comes alive as we watch him lead individual players to become not only the best players they can be, but also the best men that they can be. Bender brings basketball personalities to life as we watch them struggle to learn Winter's famous "triangle offence" and to balance their individual desires for achievement and glory with Winter's emphasis on the ultimate good of the whole team.
The pace is fast, and the anecdotes and behind-the-scenes tidbits entertain as we go with the teams through Winter's unprecedented 53 year professional career as a coach. From Kansas State, Washington, and the Houston Rockets to fourteen years with the Chicago Bulls, and the current LA Lakers, we travel the backroads of behind the scene basketball. Bender gives us the inside story on the conflicts, the joys, and the frustrations of coaching mega-stars with mega-egos while trying to teach them values of character and integrity.
This book would be a perfct gift for any high school athlete. Bender gives the reader deep insights into not only the sports psychology that Winter uses, but into the secrets of what it really takes to be able to uphold personal values in the rip-roaring jungle of professional sports.
I loved every minute of this great ride, and if you love basketball, you will too!

Trial by Basketball is the Slaughterhouse Five sports book. It's a fascinating history into Laker coach Tex Winters rise from garage band gymnasium roots, college sucess, the amazing Bull Run to current Los Angeles Laker status. As a Long Beach State 49er booster and renewed Laker backer, I recommend TRIAL strongly to fans from N.Y. to L.A. The authors unique style is a keenly accurate flashback account of Tex Winters classic career with insights into the world of sports and life as it is! A humorously intriguing One of A Kind Biography. The book equally satisfies the golden age Wilt Chamberlain transition era as well as the Rodman, Kobe X'er generation. ONCE YOUR IN TO IT, YOU CAN'T GET OUT OF IT--- MARK BENDER CLEANLY RUNS THE TABLE!------------------------ Linda Fallico-Coto De Caza, Ca.

3.0 von 5 Sternen great topic - poorly written 16. September 2009
Von Don Ford - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
A real disappointment. I'm a big nba fan as well as a longtime nba-history fan. Tex Winter is one of the greats up there with Newell, Wooden, Iba, the other pillars of basketball invention and history.

But this book is very poorly written. The verb tenses (e.g., _constant_ use of "he would go on to score 30" instead of "he scored 30") is very distracting. An amateur, I noticed at least 2 factual errors (e.g., Elgin Baylor playing in the '72 playoffs ????).

Worst, the book is merely a serial prattling of events without much insight about Tex, or anything else. Most material seems to be a rehashing of secondary sources, with a minor sprinkling of sum-up sentences quoted or rephrased from Tex. The organization of the book is lazily chronological, without much conceptual thought. The most provocative stuff about Tex himself are the rare quotes from his own book about basketball written years ago . . . which continually made me wish I were reading that one instead !

This is the first time I've written an Amazon review, compelled to do so. I bought the Pete Newell biography and this one at the same time, and read the Newell one first (a mistake! It is pretty good and made Tex's suffer greatly in the comparison).

If you can get it cheap and don't notice sloppy writing, it'll do you fine at a swimming pool somewhere.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Winter IS A Winner! A very fine book about a Man's Basketball Man, who's life in the sport has helped all around him! 26. April 2007
