Picked this book up on a whim and was pleasantly surprised. It's got a little bit of everything, it's funny, intriguing, and there are a lot of great/hilarious stories about the humble origins of basketball like the mud game in berlin and the days of corporate basketball teams - (you literally played for your employer whether it was US Steel, Pullman Co., etc) Book is written with a lot of enthusiasm, you can tell the author has a love of the game. Overall great read if you have any interest in basketball, five stars.

"American Hoops" centric view of events during the Olympics. I would strongly recommend Dr. Cunningham's new book to those who closely follow basketball and I look forward to future writing efforts on the authors part.

As an Indiana native and Purdue fan, I was excited to find this book from the cerebral former Boiler point guard. As a basketball and Olympics fan, I was very intrigued profile Olympic basketball coaches and players, like John Wooden and Gene Keady and Adrian Dantley; a thoroughly researched run-down of the first organized Olympic hoops tournament (played outdoors!); and a gripping analysis of the most controversial 1972 gold medal game between USA and U.S.S.R. (Also, the photos are great--logical and surprising.)

Like a lot of sports fans, I consider myself knowledgeable and informed when it comes to both basketball history and the Olympics, but what I realized while reading Cunningham's book was that much of what I know only skims the surface. He deeply and keenly explores (1) the influence basketball has had on the spread of democracy, (2) the competitive ascendancy of national teams like the U.S.S.R. and China, and (3) the footprint American basketball teams and "celebrities" have had on the international community when it comes to travel and personal freedom, free-market commerce, fashion, and systemic athletic excellence. Cunningham's book confirms for me a long-held instinct--that sport can and does bear a greater influence on our cultural history than even fans realize, and that an exploration like this is not only a worthwhile endeavor for the author, but a cornucopia of facts and tales and theories for readers like me. I highly recommend this book to any sports fan, but even more strongly recommend it for anybody interested in general economics or recent world history.
