Overview

Moneyball meets The Book of Basketball in this compelling look at how the Golden State Warriors embraced savvy business practices and the corporate culture of Silicon Valley to not only produce one of the greatest basketball teams in history, but also revolutionize the NBA.

Discover the definitive, inside account of how the Golden State Warriors, under the ownership of venture capitalist Joe Lacob and Hollywood producer Peter Guber, quickly became one of the most remarkable success stories ever?both in sports and business. In just a few years, they’ve turned from a declining franchise with no immediate hope into one of the greatest teams in basketball, a period that included the rise of All-Star point guard Stephen Curry. The Warriors have also become a model organization for American professional sports, instituting the best workplace principles found inside some of the world’s most successful corporations, and instilling a top-down organizational ethos that allows employees?from the front office to the free-throw line?to thrive.

Through unprecedented on-the-court access and in-depth, off-the-court reporting, acclaimed journalist Eric Malinowski recounts a gripping tale of a team’s reinvention, of worlds colliding, of ordinary people being pushed to extraordinary heights, and the Golden State Warriors’ quest to remain the best.
