PHIL JACKSON is arguably the greatest coach in the history of the NBA. His reputation was established as head coach of the Chicago Bulls from 1989-1998; during his tenure, Chicago won six NBA titles. His next team, the Los Angeles Lakers, won five NBA titles, from 2000 to 2010. He holds the record for the most championships in NBA history as a player and a head coach. He also has the highest winning percentage of any NBA coach (.704). Jackson was a player on the 1970 and 1973 NBA champion New York Knicks. In 2007 Jackson was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame. In addition to Eleven Rings, he is also the author of Maverick,Sacred Hoops, and, with his friend Charley Rosen, More Than a Game.. For fans of the hit Netflix docuseries The Last Dance.During his storied career as head coach of the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers, Phil Jackson won more championships than any coach in the history of professional sports. Even more important, he succeeded in never wavering from coaching his way, from a place of deep values. Jackson was tagged as the 'Zen master' half in jest by sportswriters, but the nickname speaks to an important truth: this is a coach who inspired, not goaded; who led by awakening and challenging the better angels of his players’ nature, not their egos, fear, or greed.This is the story of a preacher’s kid from North Dakota who grew up to be one of the most innovative leaders of our time. In his quest to reinvent himself, Jackson explored everything from humanistic psychology and Native American philosophy to Zen meditation. In the process, he developed a new approach to leadership based on freedom, authenticity, and selfless teamwork that turned the hyper-competitive world of professional sports on its head.In Eleven Rings, Jackson candidly describes how he:- Learned the secrets of mindfulness and team chemistry while playing for the champion New York Knicks in the 1970s- Managed Michael Jordan, the greatest player in the world, and got him to embrace selflessness, even if it meant losing a scoring title- Forged successful teams out of players of varying abilities by getting them to trust one another and perform in sync- Inspired Dennis Rodman and other 'uncoachable' personalities to devote themselves to something larger than themselves- Transformed Kobe Bryant from a rebellious teenager into a mature leader of a championship team. Eleven times, Jackson led his teams to the ultimate goal: the NBA championship six times with the Chicago Bulls and five times with the Los Angeles Lakers. We all know the legendary stars on those teams, or think we do. What Eleven Rings shows us, however, is that when it comes to the most important lessons, we don’t know very much at all. This book is full of revelations: about fascinating personalities and their drive to win; about the wellsprings of motivation and competition at the highest levels; and about what it takes to bring out the best in ourselves and others.

Nice interesting easy read Great book. It was recommended by a friend as a book that describes how to lead a group of very special people. Although I'm only half way through it, I'm impressed with Phil Jackson and his writing style. Really interesting how he connects being spiritual with winning.

Era para un regalo y le ha encantado Para los aficionados a la NBA será un gran libro, ya que trata la trayectoria del más laureado de los entrenadores. El envío llegó perfectamente embalado y el libro muy protegido, y aunque llegó de EEUU, no se nota el largo viaje.
Unputdownable! A book where leadership, sporting success and spirituality come together. Fascinatingly interesting and very readable, this is a book that I'm sure I will come back to. Having grown up in England as a devout lover of football, this book gives a fabulous insight into an American sport and an icon of its sporting history. What strikes me as I read this is the thought that this is 'just a coach' and this is not to disparage but to admire p, hugely, that the writing, the thinking and what is contained is so far removed from the hum drum drudgery many us are regularly exposed to in English football! If you are a sports fan, read it. But this book transcends sport too. For anyone interested in mental strength, spiritual enlightenment, coaching and leadership this book has something for you and that it is bound up in sporting success for me makes it unputdownable!
Good read if you have been a basketball fun at some point Interesting book if you have watched NBA at least briefly. You can find interesting thoughts about leadership but I think my interest wouldn't be the same if I didn't know at least some of the people mentioned in the book. Being a bit of Chicago Bulls fun in the 90s that was not a problem.
greatest basketball book ever The greatest book on basketball ever Phil Jackson is the Alex Ferguson of basketball the amount of titles he has won 1and his story and his zen philosophy is very inspiring the stories about Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan the bold and the Lakers make for classic memories of a Jaguar in basketball that would be remembered forever
Very interesting As a fan of the 90’s Bulls I was going to like this book. That said it is really well written and gave me some interesting things to think about. A side of Phil Jackson I never heard about beyond the headlines.
