Steve Alford in his book gives the reader the most accurate inside look at what is was like to play for in my opinion the 2nd greatest coach in college basketball history behind the late John Wooden. I really enjoyed how Steve went into detail about how coach approached practices and his game preparation. The chapter on the olympic experience was worth the price of the book by itself.

All-American basketball guard Alford tells the inside story on playing for the brilliant but volatile Indiana coach Bob Knight as the star guard for the Hoosiers, winners of the 1987 NCAA Championship. 5 people like this topic.

Playing for Knight book. The book gave a great description of Steve Alford leading up to Indiana University and was very descriptive about coach Knight. This book also displayed many lessons such as you can't give up and run through the tape. I would recommend this book to any sports fan and people who like to read about success and hard work.

The book recounts how Knight once criticized Alford's work habits and leadership ability .

The Hoosiers went 21-8 that year and finished second in the Big Ten, with Alford earning All-America and Big Ten Player of the Year honors College statistics.

He plays under Coach Knight for six years. Steve Alford offers a clear and concise picture of what it is like to play for one of the most successful yet intimidating coaches in college basketball. During his six years with Coach Knight he has his ups and downs. An up is he wins a national title. A down is the war stories. The war stories are the strange ways Coach Knight gets you to understand his thinking. You'll feel the frustration he felt when in the coach's doghouse and the joy he felt when winning the national championship. Through four years of playing at Indiana, Alford was able to see thru the mind games and realize the coach's motive.

Playing for Knight: My Six Seasons with Coach Knight. By Steve Alford with John Garrity. Simon and Schuster, 276 pages, (no price set). If any coach is more famous than his players, it is Bobby Knight. Since 1976, Knight& Indiana University basketball teams have won three national championships, and Knight coached the United States team to the gold medal in the 1984 Summer Olympics. Despite such impeccable credentials, Knight probably is better known for the tantrums that he has thrown on and off the court, including one incident in which he stuffed a heckling fan into a garbage can.

An Olympic gold medalist recalls his four years on Indiana University's basketball team under the brilliant but controversial coach Bobby Knight, whose volatility and manipulativeness exacted a heavy toll from his players

Well written even though Steve was only in his mid twenties. This is the most accurate depiction of Bob Knight you will find anywhere and it was fun to get an inside look at the Indiana basketball program way back when. I used to watch them religiously when Knight was the coach and really enjoyed hearing Steve describe the personalities of some of his teammates.

Steve Alford in his book [playing for knight] gives the reader the most accurate inside look at what is was like to play for in my opinion the 2nd greatest coach in college basketball history behind the late John Wooden. I really enjoyed how Steve went into detail about how coach approached practices and his game preparation.The chapter on the olympic experience was worth the price of the book by itself. At the end of the book Steve says after 6 yrs with coach Knight he would of done it all over again.Coming from now coach Alford that says a lot about the benefits of playing for coach Knight.A excellent book that does an Indiana fan proud to root for the Hoosiers and remember Bob Knight for the great coach he was and could be still.

My husband is a Bobby Knight fan and a 35+ years BB coach himself. He laughed and had tears. He thoroughly enjoyed every page and the book supported his knowing that Bobby Knight and Steve Alford are both good men and great coaches.

Great book
Book has greatly browned pages, smells, looks like an old, old book. The book is probably interesting, but I don't think I'll be reading this copy.
