I received this email this week about Cross Over: The New Model of Youth Basketball Development:
I just finished reading the Third Edition of your book. I am an NSCA certified strength and conditioning coach, and a former collegiate strength coach. I left the field to become a PE teacher in a stable job environment to raise my children. I am very impressed with the book.
I am in my fourth year of coaching 5th & 6th grade basketball, and I never played basketball in an organized setting. I have had to learn a lot. Your book has been great. It has convinced and challenged me about the way I have been coaching, and it has shed a lot of light on strength and conditioning with this age group.
I am confident you have authored the single most important book ever written on basketball and athletic development, and I have read many.
