Today, I’d like to share with you my list of coaching books I’ve gathered over the time and which are well worth the read. A lot of you have been asking me on which books I’d recommend for getting a good start into coaching or for drills.

These are all books which are written in English. I still got a bunch of German books, which I didn’t list here. So, here it is … the list of basketball books in my shelf, which will be updated frequently.
