Welcome to my basketball book library.  I created this page as a resource for anybody interested in reading basketball books.

The next book that I will review:

How to purchase these books.

Many of the books can be purchased from an on-line book seller, as well as many of the major book retailers, such as Barnes and Noble, Hastings, and Borders.  Some of these are out of print and you may have to try your luck at the 2nd hand stores or ebay.  Also, I think has a waiting list for out-of-print books.  A better place would be or
