I ordered "Summer Madness" a couple of weeks ago and read it the night it hit the doorstep. As a former player who won an NCAA championship with the Texas Longhorns (for which she was named MVP) and a WNBA title with perennial champions, the Houston Comets, Harris writes from personal experience with the greats of the game. As a sports commentator, Harris is an entertaining writer with unvarnished opinions (which she gleefully shares) on the WNBA and its big-name players. There is a photo section, an enlightening forward written by WNBA star Tina Thompson, and plenty of stuff not already published in Harris' columns. There also are several laugh-out-loud passages (don't read it in your cubicle at work) and a very touching remembrance of Kim Perrott, Harris' Houston Comet teammate. ~ Sooz, WNBA Fan
Well worth the shipping wait! If you enjoy Fran's straight-forward, witty columns then you will love this book. It was insightful and entertaining. Part autobiography, part documentary, and part commentary. A WNBA book like this was long overdue. I've recommended it to all the women's basketball fans I know. ~ Kim Callahan
