It's Tourney Time
March 27, 2013
March Madness is one of my favorite times of the year. I always look forward to filling out my brackets and watching my favorite teams try and advance each year. There have been a lot of good college basketball books dealing with the tournament through the years, but one in particular stands out. John Feinstein's Last Dance: Behind the Scenes at the Final Four is an in depth look at what it takes to put on one of sports' most popular events. I love behind the scenes sports books, and this one is one of the best.
Another good book about the tournament is the Official 2009 NCAA Men's Final Four Record Book. It lists all the records from the tournament's inception to the 2009 tourney. It's great for stat geeks and lovers of sports trivia. These books will be good reading material while watching the big games the next two weekends.
