If I could incorporate many of the things DeVenzio talks about, I could be a very special player.
A way for basketball players to gain insight and knowledge that will help them gain an edge over their opponents.

Good, not great Sep 26, 2007
Obviously Dick Devenzio was impressive in many ways. His ability and drive was amazing as was his passion for teaching. Were this review on him, it would be an unqualified 5+.
Running the Show offers some of Dick's ideas on leadership and you can "feel" his enthusiasm through the words. On the other hand, there is not a whole lot that can be learned if you are an "old hand". I gave it to my 14year old and I fully expect that she will get more out of it than I did.
It is well written and I heartily recommend this for younger and/or less experienced players and coaches.
