A Season On The Brink: A Year with Bobby Knight...
Author: John Feinstein

This classic of the genre is the inside story of one of college basketball's storied coaches and teams recounting the 1985-1986 season at Indiana University, describing the complex personality of coach Bob Knight, and examining the coaching methods which make him one of the best of all time.
A Season on the Brink not only captures the drama and pressure of big-time college basketball but paints a vivid portrait of a brilliant coach walking a fine line between genius and madness.
The book chronicles the basketball season that John Feinstein spent following the Indiana Hoosiers and their fiery coach, Bob Knight.
