This book is one of those life changing books that totally alters the way you look at things. It's a glimpse inside how the game is best taught, played, coached, and enjoyed. Thorpe’s stories, about his NBA clients or his high school players from earlier in his career, will help the reader see the game better and appreciate it more, enjoy!
Coach Thorpe, an ESPN NBA Analyst for the past ten years, has spent a lifetime coaching thousands of players in the game of basketball, while mentoring hundreds of coaches, NBA executives, and even a few owners. He is credited with being the first “basketball skills trainer”, doing for players what golf and tennis pro’s have been doing for years.
"Coach Thorpe's work on ESPN always taught you something and here he offers plenty of insight too. The stories about players he's transformed--Kevin Martin, Luol Deng, and Udonis Haslem-- are the best parts of the book. A nice complement to other books on talent, growth mindset and grit."

Amazing book. Great insight to the game and great stories. Inside you will find an inspirational approach playing, coaching and parenting with love and knowledge of the game. Perfect for the player, the coach, or the parent of the athlete.
As a person who lives in the other side of the world universe gave me a chance to work with him. It was a glimpse but he made me feel like I can reach any goal that I truly want.
Last year when I started to read this book I instantly remembered many things that I forget and learned many details and shared with my team. That journey brought us a U16 National title in Turkey. Thank you Coach Thorpe
