    After reading this book, I may have found a new favorite sport.

    After reading this book, I may have found a new favorite sport. Jackson’s mishmash of philosophies are presented in such a way that I was able to apply his basketball coaching methods to my own work. My team has really noticed a difference in how smoothly things run around the office. I loved the frank tone of the book and it was a breeze to read. This one is worth thirty minutes, no question.

    This brief synopsis of Phil Jackson's Eleven Rings successfully

    This brief synopsis of Phil Jackson's Eleven Rings successfully portrays Jackson as a coach interested in more than just the basic strategies associated with coaching basketball. One does not necessarily have to be a fan of basketball to enjoy either this book or Jackson's, as this guide effectively breaks down Jackson's triangle offense and his study of the human nature of the athlete. His spiritual beliefs overlap with his coaching strategies, and the combination of the two has led to one of the most impressive coaching resumes in sports history. The delicate analysis of this balance makes this a must-have guide.

    This guide on Eleven Rings offers a brilliantly condensed versio

    This guide on Eleven Rings offers a brilliantly condensed version of an already spectacular and motivating book. Chronicling Phil Jackson's journey of encouraging unity and self-actualization, the book brings his struggles to life, shedding light on the strategies, sensitivities, and beliefs of one of basketballs most influential figures. Staying true to the heart of Eleven Rings, this guide is equally interesting for those unfamiliar (or disinterested) with sport of basketball; rather than focusing on the game, it uses it as a framework for telling a philosophical and spiritual narrative. This makes for a compelling and ultimately very useful read for everyone, business owner or fan.

    In his time with the Lakers and the Bulls, NBA coach Phil Jackso

    In his time with the Lakers and the Bulls, NBA coach Phil Jackson emphasized teamwork and de-emphasized superstars, even while coaching some of the most iconic players in the history of the game. Eleven Rings: The Soul of Success charts Jackson’s unprecedented number of championship victories, and this 30-minute guide helpfully condenses that book down to its key essentials. Need a 30-minute briefing on Jackson’s career, with pieces of his personal life, coaching strategies, and spiritual beliefs thrown in for good measure? This guide will tell you all you need to know while simultaneously helping you decide whether or not to read Jackson’s original text.

    He was the Zen master of the NBA, and his story is intriguing. Phil Jackson was more than just a winning NBA coach, he was an inspiration to the men on his teams. This guide gives you a great taste of the full version of Eleven Rings, and is a great companion.
