I keep wanting to get to Bill Simmons' Big Book of Basketball but haven't pulled the trigger to buy it.

I think the last book I got to was Phil's Sacred Hoops. But that was at least three years ago.

Since this post is here. Let me ask you, or anyone, if they know of a good book on sports strategy or the technical details of a sport?

Back when I was younger, I could watch games and get a feel of the strategy but either because I'm not as interested in the games or my feel of sports isn't what it used to be since I don't play, my mind doesn't capture the nuances of the game. Maybe reading up on that would improve the entertainment of the game.

not sure if you're a soccer fan, but this one's a must read if you're into the game at all. utterly brilliant. a bit of a dry read but fascinating as hell if you nerd out on that type of shit.

I enjoyed it, but from listening to the podcast I’d heard a lot of the stories before.

Still found it a fun read though.

as a long time listener to the pod, I keep debating with myself if I'm going to even hear anything new.
