John Feinstein, a contributor to Golf Channel and GolfChannel.com, is one of the nation’s most successful sports authors. With over 24 books in circulation, Feinstein's name is synonymous with sports writing.His most recent work Are You Kidding Me?, written with Rocco Mediate, was released in May of 2009. In addition, he is an award-winning columnist and regular contributor in both radio and television.
His works include the two top best-selling non-fiction sports books in history. In 1995, he published the all-time best seller A Good Walk Spoiled, a year inside life on the PGA TOUR as told through 17 players on the PGA Tour. Just behind that in sales is A Season on the Brink, which chronicled a year in the life of the Indiana basketball team and its coach, Bob Knight. The book's chart-topping success was also adapted to film with an ESPN production of a made-for TV movie of the same title.
A Season on the Brink looked into the Indiana locker room, team practice sessions, Knight's office, on the team bus and airplanes as Feinstein traveled with the team. In intricate detail, Feinstein vividly depicted life inside a championship college basketball team, a style which has become a trademark for nearly all of his books.
