"In many ways basketball was a lens through which I looked at life--I had learned to make judgments about character from what I saw players do on the court." --Bill Bradley

Bradley, former U.S. senator and presidential candidate and member of two championship New York Knicks teams, returns to the scene of his first career, and first passion, in Values of the Game. In ten esssays, filled with personal observations and reflections, he illustrates how the "right stuff" on the court--risking a last-second shot, staying in shape and playing hard, making the unselfish pass, not giving in until the final buzzer--is a proving ground for the "right stuff" in life. More than one hundred dramatic photographs of the best of the NBA--from legends Elgin Baylor and Bob Cousy, Magic Johnson and Larry Bird, to such stars as Kobe Bryant and Grant Hill, to the greatest ever, Michael Jordan--exemplify the power of courage, discipline, selflessness, respect, and fair play.
