Reviews

"Rosen applies a large dollop of humor, much of it self-directed, to his recounting of [his years as a coaching the Continental Basketball Association]. The shining star here isn't Rosen or any of the players, it's the game itself. The last half-dozen pages will bring a tear to the eye of anyone for whom the game was--or is--a passion."--Wes Lukowsky, Booklist starred review

--Booklist
"Fast-paced, fanatical, and broken up by snippets of good-natured humor. . . . Crazy Basketball [is] a great read, for any casual basketball lover, insight into the former crazy league, but also a crazy coach who was a touch softened by it. For [Charley] Rosen, it was not only the Crazy Basketball Association, but his crazy association with basketball."--Krystina Lucido, Press Box

"[Rosen's] journey from the [College Basketball Association] to a desk at Fox Sports is a one-of-a-kind basketball story--only to be believed in the words of the guy who actually lived it."--Foreword
