This New York Times bestseller offers "slam-dunk lessons in teamwork and character" from the NBA hall of famer and former US senator (People). Bill Bradley, whose varied career highlights include a gold-medal win in the Olympics, two world championship victories with the New York Knicks, and three terms as a US senator from New Jersey, writes here about the game that helped form his philosophies for success in basketball and in life. Each chapter is devoted to a value that is fundamental to Bradley's vision of a purposeful life: passion, discipline, selflessness, respect, perspective, courage, leadership, responsibility, resilience, and imagination. In each, he illustrates these principles with personal anecdotes and observations, creating a concise philosophical treatise that readers can apply to their own lives. With an introduction by Bradley's friend and teammate Phil Jackson, this "love letter to basketball . . . is every bit as prescient, thoughtful, and just plain valuable a work as you'd expect from a man who never approaches any task without a full commitment" (The Boston Globe). "Bradley hits nothing but net with Values of the Game. Call it The Book of Virtues meets hardwood." -USA Today "This may be the single most important present a parent can give a sports-loving child." -The Dallas Morning News
