Product Details


“A thoroughly enjoyable account of an amazing coach and a school that does more with less.” - Booklist

“Having grown up in New Jersey and in the sports environment, I have long been aware of St. Anthony’s and the excellence that is a requirement to both play and study there. Chasing Perfect tells you all about these requirements and the efforts made by Coach Hurley, who has personally sacrificed for the greater good of the young people whose path he crossed.” –Bill Parcells

“Some guys become basketball coaches in the pros with all the million dollar players and million dollar stadiums, and some become coaches in college basketball and get everything they need.  But this fellow here, Bob Hurley, has spent most of his life coaching at a poor parochial school in the toughest part of Jersey City.  He’s been there 40 years.  There’s only 230 students, no gym, no budget, nothing.  But this coach makes it happen…changes young lives, makes them champions.  It’s a great story about a great man named Bob Hurley.” –Regis Philbin

“For decades Bob Hurley has been an inspiration to the world of basketball. Chasing Perfect is an outstanding memoir about what it takes to be great.” – Coach K. 

“As a long-time admirer of Coach Hurley and his commitment to the players of St. Anthony’s, I loved Chasing Perfect as a compelling glimpse inside his toolbox. From the intensity Coach instills in his players to his tireless passion and commitment to winning, this book takes the nuances of basketball and illuminates the larger life lessons as only a coach could. This is a must-read for every coach, player, and fan of the game.” –Jeff Van Gundy
