"Thirty-three chapters, each chapter a different basketball question that needs to be answered. Some of them are obviously crucial ... and some of them are secretly crucial. But all of them are approached in ways that ([the author] hope[s] you think) are smart and fun and nuanced"--Back cover.

#1 New York Times bestseller Who is the greatest dunker of all time? Which version of the Michael Jordan was the best Michael Jordan? What is allowed and absolutely not allowed in a game of pickup basketball? Basketball (and Other Things) presents readers with a whole new set of pivotal and ridiculous fan disputes from basketball history, providing arguments and answers, explained with the wit and wisdom that is unique to Shea Serrano. Serrano breaks down debates that NBA fans didn’t even know they needed, from the classic (How many years during his career was Kobe Bryant actually the best player in the league?) to the fantastical (If you could assign different values to different shots throughout basketball history, what would they be and why?). With incredible art from Arturo Torres, this book is a must-have for anyone who has ever stayed up late into the night debating basketball’s greatest moments, what-ifs, stories, and legends, or for those who are discovering the mythology of basketball for the first time.

INSTANT #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER WALL STREET JOURNAL BESTSELLER BARNES & NOBLE BESTSELLER AMAZON BESTSELLER "Paging through Serrano's Movies (and Other Things) is like taking a long drive at night with a friend; there's that warmth and familiarity where the chat is more important than the fastest route from Point A to Point B...It's like a textbook gone right; your attention couldn't wander if it tried." -- Elisabeth Egan, New York Times Book Review Shea Serrano is back, and his new book, Movies (And Other Things),combines the fury of a John Wick shootout, the sly brilliance of Regina George holding court at a cafeteria table, and the sheer power of a Denzel monologue, all into one. Movies (And Other Things) is a book about, quite frankly, movies (and other things). One of the chapters, for example, answers which race Kevin Costner was able to white savior the best, because did you know that he white saviors Mexicans in McFarland, USA, and white saviors Native Americans in Dances with Wolves, and white saviors Black people in Black or White, and white saviors the Cleveland Browns in Draft Day? Another of the chapters, for a second example, answers what other high school movie characters would be in Regina George's circle of friends if we opened up the Mean Girls universe to include other movies (Johnny Lawrence is temporarily in, Claire from The Breakfast Club is in, Ferris Bueller is out, Isis from Bring It On is out...). Another of the chapters, for a third example, creates a special version of the Academy Awards specifically for rom-coms, the most underrated movie genre of all. And another of the chapters, for a final example, is actually a triple chapter that serves as an NBA-style draft of the very best and most memorable moments in gangster movies. Many, many things happen in Movies (And Other Things), some of which funny, others of which are sad, a few of which are insightful, and all of which are handled with the type of care and dedication to the smallest details and pockets of pop culture that only a book by Shea Serrano can provide.

HIP-HOP (AND OTHER THINGS) is about, as it were, rap, but also some other things. It's a smart, fun, funny, insightful book that spends the entirety of its time celebrating what has become the most dominant form of music over the past two and a half decades. From Tupac to Jay Z, Missy Elliott to Drake, you'll find pretty much all of the big names among these pages - as well as a bunch of the smaller names, too. There's art from acclaimed illustrator Arturo Torres, there are infographics and footnotes; there's all kinds of stuff in there. Some of the chapters are serious, and some of the chapters are silly, and some of the chapters are a combination of both things. All of them, though, are treated with the care and respect that they deserve.

He also explores issues of race, racialized minority youth, and Black men and women in sport. Well known for his work in the sociology of sport, Dr. James builds on his earlier research, casting his gaze on the lived experiences of athletic-identified students and on the outcomes of their athletic and academic performances.

February 27, 1986. I was looking out the window of my airplane that I caught to Chicago from Atlanta, Georgia—my first plane ride. I see nothing but snow and ice being from the south. I may have only seen snow maybe twice my whole life. Over the plane intercom, ladies and gentlemen, please return to your seats, we are preparing to land. I’m saying to myself she can’t be talking to me I’m already seated. So as we land, the stewardess says again, “Welcome to Chicago O’Hare airport. I left the plane and three other guys that I met at the Meps station in Atlanta and begin our journey by looking for the USO as we were told to do. I knew Atlanta has a big airport, but for some reasons, O’Hare seems bigger. Remember now I’m from the country, so everything I see from this point on is all good to me. We finally see the USO. We pass by this janitor glaring at us saying great mistakes, huh, uh, uh-uh. (That is what they called Great Lakes Naval Training Center back then.) We just looked at him and kept walking. Once we reach the USO, there is a guy in there telling old sea stories about his time in the navy.
