Title
Toughness
Author
Jay Bilas
Rating
Good.
Summary
Jay Bilas, a former basketball player at Duke University, chronicles the lessons he's learned about toughness. There are plenty of examples used from his playing days under Coach Mike Krzyzewski as well as from accomplished athletes in other sports such as Mia Hamm, Curtis Strange, etc.
Enjoy?
Yes. The books expands greatly upon an article that Bilas wrote in 2009 that outlined what he believes true toughness really means in basketball after seeing some questionable behaviors and actions as a game analyst for ESPN. The article generated an unexpected amount of responses, which motivated Bilas to write more.
Suggest?
Yes, it is interesting to read the stories that relate to the topic of toughness from players and coaches like Hamm, Strange, Coach K, Bob Knight, Grant Hill, Jon Gruden, Tom Izzo, Roy Williams, Bill Self and many others!
