Product Details

Praise

“Professor Hollander makes the case for basketball as a philosophy—as a required subject like math, science, history, or literature. I’m ready to get my PhD.”—Charles Barkley, NBA All-Star, Inductee Basketball Hall of Fame

“Ball is life. This book tells us how and why.”—Mark Cuban, Entrepreneur and owner of the Dallas Mavericks

“If we are going to think and act in new ways about inclusion, gender and equity, then we need new ideas and new language. Professor Hollander shows us how basketball is that new way and that new language.”—Nneka Ogwumike, WNBPA President and WNBA Champion, MVP, 7-time All-Star

“You learn very powerful things in basketball: how to be in sync with other people and the pleasure of that; a sense of ‘I belong here’ and ‘I’m an important part of a larger thing’ and that we all are in the same boat, we’re all human beings. Hollander has hit at the core of something very fundamental.”—Bessel van der Kolk, MD, New York Times bestselling author of The Body Keeps the Score

“So much bigger than the game. An achievement bar none by a true scholar, in love. Read, enjoy, learn, absorb, disagree. Needs to be a required part of the curriculum at every college nationwide.”—Dan Klores, Peabody award-winning filmmaker

“There’s nothing better than actually playing ball, but the next best thing may very well be sharing stories and emotions of how the game affects us all in a deeply nuanced manner. I can’t sit still experiencing How Basketball Can Save The World. It gets me too riled up not to lace up!”—Bobbito Garcia, DJ, author, sneaker designer
