From the Publisher

When the Toronto Raptors named Isiah Lord Thomas as their Vice President of basketball operations on May 24, 1994, NBA insiders instantly recognized the move as a smart one. The fledgling Raptors, seeking to invest the team with experience, leadership, and general all-round basketball savvy, picked one of the game's legendary point guards to guide them through the always-trying first season and into the future. Toronto fans booed Thomas' first major player decision, the selection of guard Damon Stoudamire. A rookie-of-the-year season later, Stoudamire demonstrated that Thomas' basketball sense had once again been proven correct. And with the recent firing of head coach Brendan Malone, Isiah Thomas has given notice that even more he's determined to shape the Raptors' image -- and future -- in his own image.

In The Book of Isiah, the career of the NBA's most successful player-turned-basketball-executive comes to life from Thomas' early years as a member of a close-knit family trying to survive onChicago's mean streets, to his years at Indiana University under the stern tutelage of the legendary Bobby Knight, to his stellar seasons with "Bad Boys" of the Pistons, Thomas's devotion to the game of basketball is chronicled, as is the development of his canny sense of timing both on and off the court.
