"Basketball coach Phil Jackson won 11 championship rings in the NBA while coaching the Chicago Bulls and the Los Angeles Lakers, and became known for applying his own brand of spirituality to his coaching technique. In Eleven Rings, he explains how he developed a spiritual framework that provided the foundation for his winning formula and enabled him to manage such individualistic superstars as Kobe Bryant, Dennis Rodman, and Michael Jordan. Basketball fans will relish the details in this inspirational memoir, including coaching technique, tidbits about the players, and Jackson's personal views."

One of the best books by a superstar coach ever written, easily equal in importance to Bill Walsh's landmark books. Jackson accomplished the impossible, persuading Jordan, Pippen, Rodman, Bryant, and O'Neal to perform as brother warriors. This is note merely a nice story; it is historical. The world has entered an age of energy-awareness in which the welfare of the individual will increasingly be the seen as more important than the health of institutions. Walsh and Jackson, more than any other coaches, have led the way.
