BENCH RULES tells the inspirational story of Kevin Christensen, a former high school star, who finds himself banished to the end of the bench on his college basketball team. While navigating the turbulent emotions that come from being a little used reserve, he realizes the important role he plays on his team. Eventually, he finds joy and meaning in that role, and in doing so, he transforms his basketball career into a story of triumph against the odds. Amazingly, Kevin transformed his career becoming an All-Conference Player in college, as well as a professional basketball career. There have been many books praising the greatness of the select few, but BENCH RULES is a guide for the other guys. Accented by stories from his playing career, Christensen shows us ten different ways a person can contribute to a team without scoring a single point, or even playing a single minute, on game day. From superstar down through last player on the bench, the ideas in this book are valuable to everyone who desires to become the best player, teammate and person they can be. BENCH RULES is the blueprint for those who want to become champions both on and off the court.
Say's Jeremy Russotti, "I am not an avid reader by no means, but this is a very powerful book. Having three kids myself, this is a must read for all younger players in becoming a true team player. Furthermore, the book is for any player that either needs motivation to improve, as well as the Superstar in learning how to develop a successful social climate for their team."
Say's Noted Hoops Blogger Herb Welling, "Bench Rules may be the most important read for basketball players right now. Every coach, program, youth player, high school player, college player, professional player, needs to read this book. Amazing read!"
