"[A] slam dunk."--"USA Today"
"The work of a true fan . . . It might just represent the next phase of sports commentary."--"The Atlantic"
"May be one of those literary lollapaloozas that Simmons's fans must buy."--"The New York Times"
"Wildly prolific, ceaselessly witty, harmlessly crass, and generally wise, Simmons has built an everydude empire by triangulating the trashy pop-culture futon talk of Chuck Klosterman and the stats-heavy philosophizing of Malcolm Gladwell."--"The Village Voice"
"This is just plain fun. . . . The true NBA fan will dive into this hefty volume and won't resurface for about a week."--"Booklist" (starred review)
"The book flows much like Mr. Simmons's ESPN columns. . . . Opinion gushes out of him. But he backs it up with equal parts serious research and off-angle observations. . . . He has produced enough provocative arguments to fuel barstool arguments far into the future."--"The Wall Street Journal"
