"This book makes you want to rediscover your childhood hoop."
-NPR Michigan, Current State
"Robin Layton breaks basketball down to one of its most essential elements: the hoop."
"The focus here is on the hoop, whether tacked to a tree or keeping lonely vigil over a playground."
"For anybody who ever saw a basketball hoop on the side of the road and felt the immediate urge to play on it, this book details that feeling in a tangible way via awesome imagery. And, it;s just cool to see hoops that some of the biggest players in the NBA started on."
"Layton's camera pays homage to America's love for basketball."
"Famouse or obscure, Layton consistently captures one thing in every picture--charater, which is impressive considering the breadth of the book."
