Make the shot from anywhere, anytime with enhanced edition of Basketball Shooting

In Basketball Shooting-Enhanced Edition, professional shooting coach Dave Hopla presents the same skills and strategies that have helped players such as Chris Bosh, Gilbert Arenas, Ben Gordon, Brandon Jennings, Diana Taurasi, Sue Bird, Ray Allen, and Kobe Bryant achieve great success on the basketball court. Covering long-range three-pointers, midrange jumpers, bank shots, and free-throw shots, Coach Hopla pulls from his extensive coaching experience—which includes stops in the NBA and with multiple international squads—to help you master every element of a correct shot. He also includes over 20 drills to help you perfect the techniques you need to hit shots from anywhere. Basketball Shooting-Enhanced Edition includes 43 video clips that demonstrate exactly how to perform various skills & drills. Some of the clips are of Hopla discussing coaching tips and strategies that have made him one of the world's most sought-after experts.

NBA Hall of Famer Michael Jordan put it best: “You miss 100 percent of the shots you don't take.” With Basketball Shooting-Enhanced Edition as your coach, you can hit the court with confidence in your ability to make any shot from anywhere on the court.

This enhanced e-book with video is now available for purchase through the Apple iBookstore and Amazon's Kindle store and is compatible with iOS devices—iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch—using the iBooks or Kindle app. It is also available via Barnes & Noble for use on the NOOK Color or NOOK Tablet.

 

"Dave is one of the all-time great shooting coaches. I continue to be amazed at his ability not only to shoot so well but also to teach others to do the same."
