Book Review: Pro Basketball's All-Time All Stars: Across the Eras by Robert Cohen

 

Like I say nearly every single day on my show, I’m in my fifth decade of watching NBA basketball. I’ve seen so many great players ply their craft either in person or on TV and sometimes it’s hard to remember everything about them.

Author Robert Cohen’s newest release Pro Basketball’s All-Time All Stars: Across the Eras took care of that little problem for me.

Pro Basketball’s All-Time All Stars: Across the Eras is a well written comprehensive look at every NBA All Star who ever played the game and is like a pleasant walk down memory lane after a bad day. From the time the reader opens up Pro Basketball’s All-Time All Stars: Across the Eras until they close it the reader will be reminded of the great ones they saw play and if you dear reader are a fan like me each individual profile, set up in the era the player played in, will have you stop and pause and mostly smile.

Each era (Cohen identifies 5, most authors only 2) and every single All Star is highlighted and judged according to a criteria Cohen clearly defines at the beginning of the book. He then selects an all era all star team and closes the book with his all time NBA All Star team. The reader can argue all they like with Cohen’s formula but what they can’t say is that he doesn’t apply it throughout the book in a consistent manner because he does.

I enjoyed Pro Basketball’s All-Time All Stars: Across the Eras so much that I invited Mr. Cohen to join me on a Internet Radio/podcast I host named The Writers Showcase Podcast. You can listen to that program here.
