The book told the story of how James Naismith came to invent the game of basketball. Students in Division 2 and 3 were interested in the story and most of them were very surprised to learn that James Naismith was Canadian! Disappointingly, the book only mentions this fact at the very end, in the Author's notes.

Very interesting! I can safely say I never knew anything about the history of basketball before reading this book.
