There must be more to life than bracketology. But once March Madness sets in, it's hard not to become a college basketball fanatic. For those who want to do so more intelligently (or who need good reading material for those timeouts), here's a list of 10 books guaranteed to both boost knowledge and increase spectator pleasure.

1. "A Season on the Brink" by John Feinstein. Feinstein, a noted sportswriter, follows a year in the life of coach Bobby Knight and his 1985-86 Indiana Hoosiers. Some call it the best book ever written about basketball.

2. "A March to Madness" by John Feinstein. This time Feinstein follows one year in the life of a conference: the Atlantic Coast Conference. "A March to Madness" follows the conference teams, their coaches, and their players, through the 1996-97 basketball season, culminating with the NCAA Final Four.
