John Feinstein's illuminating recollections from two decades of interviews with sports legends.

John Feinstein's career is a sports fan's dream-a lifetime of encounters with the great figures in sports, not just on the field, but in the locker room and behind the scenes with legends like Bob Knight, Dean Smith, Mike Krzyzewski, Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, and John McEnroe.

Since his days as a youngWashington Postjournalist, Feinstein has written twenty-eight books and countless magazine articles and newspaper columns, covering college basketball, golf, tennis, baseball, and very nearly every sport in between. He has told us of victory and defeat, of athletes and coaches we love--and love to hate. But some of his best stories have been left untold, until now.

One on One is an incredible portal into the sports we love-from the box scores and the pageantry of game night and into the hard work and intensity that turn players and coaches into legends.

Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from too much on college basketball I was hoping this would be more like Feinstein's other books which are terrific but this had way too much of a focus on college basketball coaches. Sorry, but as much as I love March Madness, I don't find many of these coaches much more than bullies (hello, Bobby Knight) or guys making millions off unpaid indentured "student" athletes.

Editorial Reviews

"Fascinating...[Feinstein's] work, like that of the best American sports writers, is richly detailed and emotionally articulate...Feinstein's storytelling is so compelling, his understanding of the structural cruelties and emotional consequences of winner-takes-all competition so acute."-David Goldblatt, The Guardian
