From the Back Cover:

"My old coach Phil Jackson used to say, 'Basketball is a metaphor for life, and life is a metaphor for basketball.' Bruce captures that statement perfectly in his memoir. The pursuit of greatness in the game of basketball in his youth carved the path of Bruce's life, giving him the work ethic, confidence, and spirit to build a great career and family. In the end, that's what youth sports are supposed to be about. This book strengthens my faith in that ideal."

Steve Kerr, five-time NBA Champion, Chicago Bulls, San Antonio Spurs


"What do lessons learned as a youth playing basketball on the playgrounds have to do with becoming a successful surgeon? Everything. You will laugh, cry, and become educated as Bruce Rosenfeld takes you through a journey of his life from the hardwood to the operating table. He certainly made every shot count."

John Haley, former teammate and award-winning sportswriter, The Star-Ledger
