Year of the Dunk a "briskly paced book," says Kirkus

In another nice pre-publication review, Kirkus calls Year of the Dunk a "briskly paced book," in which "readers will recognize the courage and tenacity of everyday competitors and the power and awe-inspiring achievements of elite athletes."

"Price comes across as a nonintimidating science teacher with a dry, sometimes self-deprecating wit," says the review.

"During the course of his pursuit, Price faced down numerous psychological and physical obstacles, as well as dramatic setbacks off the hardwood, but his optimism, perseverance, and development are at the heart of this good-natured chronicle of his efforts."
