Book Review: The Macrophenomenal Pro Basketball Almanac

July 29, 2009

This is a review from my Favorite Books list; the link from which will be also on the Books Page.


“…they’re part of the antics. And the antics are what this book is all about.”

A thoroughly enjoyable read that felt more like a good magazine issue than a 200-plus-page book (in a very good way). I would say that this would be a great book even for non-book-readers, but the vocabulary of FreeDarko’s authors dissallows the mental detachment of an issue of, say, ESPN The Magazine.

The Almanac does profiles of a handful of NBA players, with witty sidebars and very creative illustrations (look around the ‘net for the Kobe Byrany visual from the book and you get the idea- captured #24’s basketball image perfectly).
