    One thought on “A Season Inside: One Year in College Basketball

    1. Jeff

      This was a long book about a year in college basketball that took me a long time to read. My main interest was Feinstein's inside look at Steve Kerr's senior season at Arizona. Kerr talks about the assassination of his father, the effect it had on him, and provides great access to his season in Tuscon. Feinstein also has great access to a variety of other programs and officials as the college season plays out. It was interesting to read about a young Rick Barnes, Gary Williams, and others before [...]

    2. Tom Gase

      Once again, another great book by John Feinstein on the world of college basketball. This one really took me back to my first year I can remember watching college hoops--1988. There are great stories on just about every team in every league in this book, including some good profiles on Steve Kerr, Danny Manning, Billy King of Duke, Paul Evans of Pitt, and Rolly Massimo of Villanova just to name a few. A must-read for any college basketball or John Feinstein fan.

    3. David Ward

      A Season Inside: One Year In College Basketball by John Feinstein (Villard Books 1988) (796.36263). Feinstein focuses on the 1987-88 NCAA basketball season which was dominated by Kansas and Danny Manning. Feinstein includes a number of profiles of players and coaches. My rating: 7/10, finished 2006.

    4. Alex Mitchell

      A little dated now (2011) but never-the-less a thoroughly engaging window into college basketball. Feinstein had access to individual players, their families, and teams unlike any other journalist, and the events he recounts give insight into the NCAA Men's Basketball scene unavailable from any other author.

    5. Oliver Bateman

      A solid survey of one of the best NCAA basketball seasons in recent memory. When John Feinstein lets the participants speak for themselves, his prose soars. However, his attempts to dramatize basketball games and human interest stories (particularly the Steve Kerr story) fall flat. Feinstein would write this book over and over again (e.g A March to Madness), albeit with diminishing returns.

    6. Michael

      A diary book where Feinstein spends a season (mid 80s) traveling and following a number of big time college basketball people, primarily coaches. As a big Maryland fan, it was interesting to hear about Gary Williams issues with the Athletic Director at Ohio State.

    7. Chris

      I think that there is a reason that I haven't heard much about this Feinstein book. I still liked it well enough, but it was slow. I didn't know if I'd ever finish it. It did have a few intriguing storylines and segments. Certainly not one of Feinstein's best.

    8. Perry Parris

      If you love college basketball, this book is wonderful. John Feinstein is one of my favorite authors. GREAT BOOK!

    9. Russ

      Loved this book! The year of Steve Kerr and Danny Manning! A great read and a great insight into college basketbal.
