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.

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.
