THE AUDACITY OF HOOP by Alexander Wolff

November 4, 2015

Alexander Wolff spoke about his book, The Audacity of Hoop, at Politics & Prose on Monday, November 23, 2015.

In this unique analysis of Obama’s presidency, Wolff, a Sports Illustrated senior writer and the author of Big Game, Small World, studies how the Chief Executive plays basketball and uses Obama’s on-court technique as a key to understanding how he leads the nation. With photos of the president in pick-up games, a detailed “Baracketology,” and timelines showing the parallel developments in Obama’s political and athletic styles, this book is a tribute to how sports can build character.
