BILL BRADLEY'S BOOKS
NEW YORK POST
In a memoir at once deeply felt, lively, and astute, Bill Bradley talks about his life, his country, and his hopes for the American future. He speaks with affection about his small-town Missouri upbringing. He traces his road from Princeton to Oxford to professional basketball to public service. And he brings vividly to life the world of a U.S. Senator – the rocky road to legislation, the invasiveness of the media, the power of money.
“Bradley’s grace is to portray his uncommon achievements as a common American experience.” – Los Angeles Times
NEW YORK POST
Decades after its author retired from the New York Knicks to become a United States Senator, Bill Bradley’s account of 20 days in a professional basketball season remains a classic in sports literature, unparalleled in its candor and intelligence.
"A study in self‐effacement... Bradley is a born observer, insatiably curious, compulsively reflective." – The New York Times

Bill Bradley offers his vision for how the principles he developed playing basketball can be applied to everyday life. In ten essays filled with intensely personal observations and reflections, he revisits the court with the fire of a competitor and eye of a writer, exploring team dynamics; the pure love of the game that leads to the unselfish pass or off-the-ball screen; the individual courage it takes to risk a last-second shot; the responsibility one has to teammates, coaches, and fans to stay in shape, play hard, and honor the game.
“[Bradley] has written a love-letter to basketball.” – The Boston Globe
From one of the foremost political thought leaders of our time comes We Can All Do Better, a thought-provoking book about how we can break the present cycle of despair, frustration, and cynicism permeating our country and partake in a more participatory form of democracy.
"Bradley reminds us that the demands of citizenship never stop, and he offers a plan to get America back in the game." – Tom Brokaw, former NBC News anchor
THE NEW YORKER
“Politics is stuck” – Bill Bradley writes in this insightful, informative, and provocative book about America at a crossroads – but “idealism isn’t dead. It can be reawakened.” What will it take to build a better, stronger country? The bestselling author, former Knicks star, and one-time presidential candidate believes we’re in a teachable moment that compels us to reevaluate our political system, our leadership, our agenda as a nation, and ourselves as citizens.
Bill Bradley ran for president, helped shape a national debate, and altered America’s views on universal healthcare, child poverty, race relations, gun control, and campaign finance reform. If anything, his thinking was ahead of the country’s. That experience forms the heart and soul of The Journey from Here, a compelling call to action from a man no longer campaigning for office, but still running hard for ideas and principles that will define the essence of this nation.
Everyone complained about our income tax system, but Senator Bill Bradley decided to do something about it. In this book, he offers a point-by-point program for lowering tax rates, broadening the tax base, simplifying tax laws, and encouraging economic growth – a blueprint for the historic Tax Reform Act of 1986.
