In Your Face...

Chuck Wielgus and Alexander Wolff have delved into the folk culture of pick up basketball just as historians might, putting into words and pictures a part of the American jock spirit. They've described all the types you've ever run accross in a gym or schoolyard: the player who does nothing but rebound and play D; the slow, fat guy who'll argue every call; the little guard who always thinks he's open: and the ego case who only runs with the best comp. And this book touches on the feelings and thoughts that occur to any player. Don't be surprised if you find yourself smirking or saying 'That's it!" to yourself while reading it
