Twenty-five years after it spent sixteen weeks atop the New York Times bestseller list, A Season on the Brink remains the most celebrated basketball book ever written. Granted unprecedented access to legendary coach Bob Knight and the Indiana Hoosiers during the 1985–86 season, John Feinstein saw and heard it all: practices, team meetings, strategy sessions, and mid-game huddles, as the team worked to return to championship form. The result is an unforgettable chronicle that not only captures the drama and pressure of big-time college basketball but also paints a vivid portrait of a complex, brilliant coach as he walks the fine line between genius and madness.

Quotes & Awards

  • A Season on the Brink is not just my favorite sports book of all time, but one of my favorite books in general. Everything that’s important and disturbing about basketball can be understood through its details.”

    Chuck Klosterman, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Nothing less than extraordinary.”

    Chicago Tribune

  • “Bob Knight still curses the day he granted the author unfettered access to his program. Feinstein’s year as an honorary Hoosier yielded an unsparing portrait of Indiana’s combustible coach.” 

    Sports Illustrated

  • “Riveting…Perhaps the best basketball book ever written.”

    Dayton Daily News

  • “That Feinstein could watch that season attached to Knight’s hip gives A Season on the Brink its sights and its sounds. That such closeness allowed entry into Knight’s heart gives the book its fury. The combination is irresistible.”
