The Definitive Guide to Playing Modern Post by Pete Newell and Swen NaterEditors Note: Legendary coach Pete Newell passed away at age 93 in November 2008, but before his passing he left behind this book and the DVD that comes with it. You can hear Newell give an intro on the DVD - most of it features Nader and other Newell Big Man Camp Coaches in action. The DVD is very helpful and I restate my feeling that you should avoid any book that claims to be instructional but lacks a DVD or CD ROM. The added detail you get with video makes the complete package.For example, you see the timing of the footwork and the subtle details that make moves work. Coaches or athletes can read it, but for many, it will not sink in until the see it. One problem is that the book does not ear mark which drills or concepts are also covered in the DVD - unlike other books from Human Kinetics. I find this to be helpful and it should be SOP on these books.

Pete Newell’s Playing Big offers a rare opportunity to learn from a basketball coach who has taught Shaquille O’Neal, Hakeem Olajuwon, and Bill Walton the finer points of post play and added new inside dimensions to the perimeter games of Shawn Marion, James Worthy, and Scottie Pippen. With this book and DVD, Pete Newell and Swen Nater show how you too can learn and apply the tactics and techniques from the world’s foremost expert on playing big and dominating the inside game.
