    1. As a diehard KU fan, I was looking forward to reading this book for awhile I have enjoyed Jason King s KU and college basketball reporting and writing for years This book, however, was an unnecessarily tedious read.In general, the book could have used better editing and seemed like it was hastily put together I m not sure if the player by player format was the most effective King could have edited the interviews to eliminate some of the redundancy among players stories, or he could have structur [...]

    2. I debated on whether or not I should post a review for this book, but ultimately I figured why not Now, one thing you should know about me is that I am a huge sports fan I am also a die hard KU fan I read this book when it first came out about a year ago, but I figured there was no harm in posting my review Yes, I am a biased KU fan Yes, I cry when KU basketball loses a game Yes, I have trained to hate Missouri since I was a little kid BUT I appreciate sports, and even if this book wasn t about [...]

    3. Pretty engrossing read Hearing each player talk about a specific game gets a bit old Tons of typos in there, but tons of stories and anecdotes that will make you long for the days at the Fieldhouse, just like these guys Oh, and you ll be ready for a Championship run after finishing this book.

    4. Good for fans of KU basketball, but certainly no earth shattering behind the scenes information being revealed in this book Very enjoyable for those of us who have followed the players in the book, though.

    5. An absolute, unadulterated must read for Kansas basketball fans, of which I m one, big time, so, five stars despite the unacceptable number of typos.

    6. A great book, telling a lot of behind the scene stories of some GREAT Jayhawk teams Must reading for any true Jayhawk fan

    8. Best for die hard fans some of the biggest names player in the coach Roy Williams and coach bill self Including Thomas Robinson, nick collision, and many

    9. Must read for any Kansas basketball fan Great insight from nearly every notable name over a decade of dominance.
