Four Months...And A Lifetime
Chris Meyer, author

Adult; Memoir; (Create)

“Our seasons lasted only four months, but the memories will last lifetimes.” Four Months...And A Lifetime is the touching true story of a father who coached his son’s basketball team from kindergarten through eighth grade, a remarkable nine-year journey with the same boys. Their final march to the eighth-grade season Championship is interspersed with the author’s own journey of falling in love with basketball in early-seventies New York, filled with anecdotes of Dr. J, sneaking into Duke’s Cameron Indoor Stadium, and playing pickup in Larry Bird’s home state of Indiana. Four Months... And A Lifetime is not only a love story about a father and his son, but of a coach who strived to teach his team the greatest game of basketball and, hopefully, life lessons.
Reviews
Brian “White Mamba” Scalabrine, Boston Celtics, Chicago Bulls, and New Jerse

"Chris has written a touching story of a father and his son playing, coaching, and falling in love with the greatest game on earth. It is both captivating and filled with great anecdotes from a guy who truly knows and loves the game."

Craig Leener, author of This Was Never About Basketball and All Roads Lead to La

“Unsuspecting readers might think they’ve simply picked up a primer on the joys and pitfalls of coaching middle school basketball. But Chris Meyer’s meticulously crafted work intertwines his deep love of family with an expansive knowledge of basketball, especially the nuanced ways in which the game can foster teamwork and reveal the true character of those who are caught up in its orbit. Of particular interest is the author’s endearing description of what it’s like to call “next” as a newcomer in a seemingly hostile gym, which reads like a youthful but not necessarily naïve hostage negotiator rescuing a long-lost family heirloom from a grumpy pawnbroker.”

Gregory Zuckerman, co-author of Rising Above, How 111 Athletes Overcame Challeng

   "Touching, uplifting, inspirational and a heck of a lot of fun."

Paul Volponi, author of Black and White, The Final Four and Streetball is Life.

“Chris Meyer has penned a family basketball odyssey--a journey from the hardwood court to the heart of a father/son relationship. His deftly balanced prose has the feel of a basketball resting comfortably on your fingertips.”
