"Legends and Heroes of Philippine Basketball" (Book Review)

Book Title: Legends and Heroes of Philippine Basketball
Authors: Dr. Christian Bocobo and Beth Celis
Published: December 2004 (Release Date: March 2005)

Its the only comprehensive book about history of the Philippine basketball. It includes the list of rosters and line-ups of some of the most successful national teams in Philippine history, greats and legends of Philippine basketball, list of individual achievements and national team success, as well as great photos from the past.

The only let-downs are the somewhat limited and incomplete list of players' individual and team achievements.

Overall, its a very useful source and good reading for all basketball historians, writers, and especially Filipino basketball fans everywhere. 

This review was originally posted at LibraryThing and Goodreads.

P.S. If you're not based in the Philippines and wanted to buy your own copy of this book on-line, try Starry-Starry Store (ABS-CBN Shopping Center). It's only US$20 and will only have to pay more due to the cost of international delivery. Although, I think the best way to get hold of the book (faster) if you're not in the Philippines is to let someone you know (who are based in Manila) to buy the book for you and send it to you via DHL/FedEx... although, you might've to pay extra.
