More than twenty years after Bill Bradley retired from the New York Knicks to become a United States senator, his account of twenty days in a pro basketball season remains a classic in sports literature. Unparalleled in its candor and intelligence, the book takes readers from the court to the locker room, to the loneliness of a motel in a strange city.
