Book Review: “Eleven Rings: The Soul Of Success” By Phil Jackson And Hugh Delehanty (2013, 393 Pages)
Where Buddha meets Michael Jordan.
Phil Jackson is the greatest coach of NBA history. He won two NBA titles as a player, and eleven titles as a coach (hence the eleven rings) – six with the Chicago Bulls and five with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Inspired by Buddhist principles, this book covers leadership, management and personal development.
It is rich in, but not limited to, great basketball anecdotes involving the likes of Michael Jordan (the almost perfect role model), Shaquille O’Neal (the all-around star), and Kobe Bryant (the self-absorbed talent).
“Eleven Rings” is vivid, interesting and enriching.
