Forward: Rick Barry Reviews
This is a really shallow book written for kids. If you want to learn a lot about Rick Barry read his book "Confessions of a basketball Gypsy." (or don't read it: it's crap). I got this book at the dollar store (a good place to get some decent basketball books). This book can be read in about an hour. It's 46 pages long and has a LOT of photographs. The premise of the book is "Ain't Rick Grand?" It covers the 1974-75 NBA Champion Golden State team that Barry was captain of and contains good playoff coverage. It does all revolve around Barry, though, which isn't necessarily bad (the book IS about him, after all). It's just that you don't get 2-dimensional (team) or 3 dimensional (team + opponent) depth and background. Rick walks on water. Rick loves kittens. Rick works for World Peace and wants to win the Miss America pageant so he can be a role model for little girls everywhere... you get my drift. It's that kind of book.
