Keith Miniscalco and Greg Kot are the authors of Survival Guide for Coaching Youth Basketball.
 With 19 years of youth basketball coaching experience and 8 years of coaching high school, Coach Keith Miniscalco knows how to develop youth players to excel at all levels. He has coached both boys and girls in several acclaimed Chicago park district and youth school leagues, including Our Lady of Lourdes and Queen of All Saints grade schools, Loyola Academy High School, and his own highly respected Over the Edge youth basketball travel program. He cofounded and currently runs Over the Edge in Chicago. The program’s goal is to prepare youth-level players for high school competition. It has seen great success and has proven to be extremely effective for young athletes who wish to continue with competitive basketball. In 2008 Coach Miniscalco was named the boy’s varsity coach at Northside College Preparatory in Chicago. He lives in Chicago.

A full-time music critic for the Chicago Tribune, Greg Kot fills much of his spare time coaching with Miniscalco in their Over the Edge program for youth basketball players. An accomplished writer, Kot has been the Chicago Tribune’s pop critic since 1990. He is a regular contributor to numerous national publications, including Rolling Stone, and cohosts the nationally syndicated radio show Sound Opinions on public radio. He authored the acclaimed rock biography Wilco: Learning How to Die in 2004 for Broadway Books, and his next book, Ripped: How the Wired Generation Revolutionized Music, will be published by Scribner in 2009. Kot lives in Chicago.
