    • Good quick read. Different look at all 11 championship runs. It always amazes me at how much preparation, energy and thought go into a single game or series. This book shows how mental the game of basketball is. This is refreshing these days considering our country celebrates mediocrity and stupidity (don't believe me watch TV). It is also interesting to see his perspective on players like Jordan, Pippen, Kobe, and Shaq. His ability to find various ways to motivate each player on his teams is wh [...]

    • I can't exactly recall where I heard about Phil Jackson's book maybe on NPR or late night TV. At any rate, I am not a huge basketball fan, but was intrigued about learning leadership lessons from this incredibly successful coach. I think there are some pointers to be gleaned from this book that would particularly be helpful to educators looking at each person on your team (or class) as an individual and figuring out what makes them tick, finding common ground and treating others who are differen [...]

    • I love this book. It's a perfect storm in reverse: every good thing about it is enhanced by all the other good things that surround it.For a lifelong basketball fan with a deep interest in spiritual practice, creative improvisation, managing talent, and eliciting outstanding performance, it's a heady mix. The book backfills my memory of the great games I still replay in my mind, going back to a limping Willis's unforgettable two shots in the final game against the Lakers in 1970. But it is more [...]

    • This latest installment of Phil Jackson's war stories presents his sports career, first as a double NBA champion with the New York Knicks, then as an eleven-time NBA champion (the current record) with Michael Jordan's Chicago Bulls and Shaquille O'Neal/Kobe Bryant's LA Lakers. The book covers this phenomenal career, but also focuses on Phil Jackson's life philosophy--a combination of Zen Buddhism, Native American (animist? tribal?) beliefs, and bits and pieces of common sense. Overall, good for [...]

    • Absolutely incredible book. I highly recommend it to anyone venturing into a leadership role or anyone that would like to further their thoughts on spirituality and it's role in building a team. I can't say enough about how important this book has been for me at a very pivotal point in my career.

    • Review:Phil Jackson has proven with his previous books that he is as skilled a writer as he is a basketball coach, and he shows it again with “Eleven Rings.” This book is mostly a recap of his coaching stints with both the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers. He talks about what he had to do to take these teams that were loaded with talent and make them blend together into a cohesive team in order to win all those championships.There are some aspects of leadership that books about business [...]

    • Eleven Rings: The Soul of Success was just the right book for me to read. Two of my passions are learning about spirituality and following professional sports. Long time NBA coach Phil Jackson discusses both these topics in depth in his new autobiography, giving a behind the scenes look at Jackson’s eleven nba championship teams.On the basketball side, I enjoyed reading stories of Jackson’s rise from a high school basketball player in North Dakota to the NBA’s New York Knicks, and his coac [...]

    • I'm a born & raised Chicagoan who grew up in the Michael Jordan era so I love Phil Jackson. I was very curious to read something about Phil because his nickname is Zen Master and that's something I desire to be whether in actuality or just perception of peers remains to be seen. I highlighted a lot in this book and I also saved numerous book titles to my "to-read" list. So in that way, the book was completely worth it for me. I must say I kept thinking to myself "there's probably so much mor [...]

    • In a way, this book served its purpose because it helped demystifying the relationship between Phil Jackson's spiritual mumbo jumbo and his incredible success as an NBA coach to me. Of course it doesn't make sense to fans and bystanders, because we've never had anything at stake together. Truth is, when you perform at that level, against such an insane level of opposition, you look for every possible edge you can gain on the opposition, by thinking differently and forming a collective consciousn [...]

    • The experience of watching the 90s Chicago Bulls defined my understanding of sport. Year after year, we religiously watched the NBA playoffs. The poise of Michael Jordan and his supporting cast made victory feel inevitable. After each, we made a pilgrimage to a makeshift championship t-shirt stand in the ballroom of Skokie's Holiday Inn, returning with the latest"big head" or "ring" shirt design.Phil Jackson's reputation as "the zen master" solidified during this period, but my understanding of [...]

    • If you've been a basketball fan for the last 20 years, there isn't a lot of new material in this book from that perspective. The stories of the evolution of the Bulls and Michael Jordan from one man band to dynasty, the squabbles of the Shaq-Kobe Lakers and then the renewal of the Kobe-Pau Lakers have been well documented. However, what's most interesting about the book is gaining an insight into Phil Jackson's skills as a manager. This is a book more about teamwork, management, leadership and m [...]

    • Phil Jackson coached some of the NBA's greatest players (Jordan and Kobe) and some of its most mercurial (Rodman) but had unparalleled success by helping his teams find themselves. It's not clear how Jackson found his own spiritual calling, drawing from eastern philosophy and religion as well as Native American culture, but he channeled it to manage big egos. You've got to be interested in detailed accounts of basketball games to love this book, but anyone interested in leadership can learn some [...]

    • There was much less about practical coaching and management wisdom than I hoped for in this book. It's not evident that Jackson is reading and learning from other management and leadership works himself, or other coaches other than those who have already been with him for years. He quotes a few Buddhist works or proverbs but that's about it, so I found him to be pretty intellectually shallow despite being famous for giving his players books. "The soul of success is surrendering to what is" is su [...]

    • For those of you who don't follow basketball (are there any of you out there?), Phil Jackson is known as "the Zen master." He played on two championship NY Knicks teams in the early 1970's, but is probably better known as the man who coached the Michael Jordan-led Chicago Bulls to six trophies and the Shaquille O'Neal/Kobe Bryant (and later just Kobe Bryant) LA Lakers to another five. As it's NBA tradition for owners to gift commemorative rings to the members of their championship teams, Eleven [...]

    • Great story about all of Phil Jackson's championship teams and their season(s). If you're not a sports fan, there is still a lot of valuable info about leadership and Zen Buddhism.

    • Zen and then someAs a basketball fanatic I truly enjoyed this end to end accounting of Phil Jackson's amazing career that produced 11 rings - most when he was acting as a coach. My only gripe is that I expected more leadership advice - but what is on offer is quite valuable.

    • Brennan KulickEnglish 3Due: September 17, 2017Ms. WeilnauEleven Rings: The Soul of Success Part 1: The main character of this book is Phil Jackson. This book is an autobiography about Phil Jackson’s early life, NBA career, and his whole coaching career in the NBA. It starts out with Phil talking about his childhood and where he lived and about his parents. He talks about his Christian parents and how he came about to love the game of basketball in high school. At 6”8, Phil was talented enoug [...]

    • Eleven Rings by Phil Jackson is an outstanding book on Phil's playing and coaching career in the NBA. As someone who loves the NBA and grew watching Phil win these championship rings as a coach, this book was incredibly interesting to me and very difficult to put down.No coach in any of the major professional sports has won as many championships as Phil Jackson has. Phil has also had the privilege of coaching a few of the NBA's all time greatest players in: Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, and Shaqu [...]

    • meh.This book couldn't decide what it wanted to be. Is it a management advice book? A book about Jackson's weird blend of Buddhism and Native American spirituality? A book that just recounts 11 runs at a title? I've just finished it and I'm not really sure what he was going for.Probably what frustrated me most was Jackson's unwillingness to explore or extract lessons from his mistakes. Even his tone when describing losses is shockingly self-centered and unwilling to admit fault: "I was ejected i [...]

    • With the NBA playoffs in full swing, it was perfect time of year to reconnect with the Zen master himself, Phil Jackson to chronicle his championship oddness’s. Not sure what more the target audience of this book could want, Jackson seems to go to great lengths to detail the journeys of each season including in depth analysis of how he built the title contenders and stories about the players involved. Some great insights in relations to interactions he's had with the best (Michael Jordan, Shaq [...]

    • In his wondrous new book, "Eleven Rings: The Soul of Success," the winningest coach in NBA history takes us past the personalities and particulars of the court to explore what victory really is. As Phil Jackson lays it out, winning isn't about scoring more points than the other team, important as that is. Rather it's a by-product of an eager, curious, reflective and self-aware state of mind. Harder and more rewarding work, in many ways, than those grinding regular seasons and greuling playoffs.A [...]

    • For people that love general basketball knowledge, this book is perfect. The way Phil Jackson talks about his journey going through 21 years as an NBA coach and how he dealt with some of the greats of the game is enjoyable. He speaks about everything from coaching Michael Jordan and the 1995-96 Bulls to Kobe Bryant & Shaquille O'Neal and how they argued. The way Phil reflects on everything and give reasons for why he did things really allows the reader to feel like they were with him at that [...]

    • Eleven Rings by Phil Jackson and Hugh Delehanty is a great chance to understand one of the greatest coaches in professional basketball history. The book is an autobiography written by Phil Jackson in which he shares a lot of his use of Zen meditation. He also talks about his playing career with the New York Knicks and his coaching job with the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers. After reading the book, I used some of his examples of meditation like lighting incense to relax. When he used incen [...]

    • Eleven Rings: The Soul of Success (Hardcover)This informative and entertaining book is really three books in one. For the basketball fan, there is a treasure trove of data about specific games, player relationships, motivations for trades, and x's and o's - game strategies and tactics. For the spiritually-inclined, there is much wisdom from diverse traditions. These translate and apply both into one's development over a lifetime and on a day-to-day basis be it performance under pressure or getti [...]

    • I got this book because I wanted to know more about this magic leadership alchemy Phil Jackson delivers. I loved what the book says about success, the journey each of us takes toward fulfilling our potential, and the role of teamwork in achievement. But what you won't know until you read it is that Eleven Rings is not just all that - it's unique. Yes, it's well-written and engaging. The stories about his star players and the people in his orbit are wildly entertaining. But it's so much more than [...]

    • While I enjoyed SACRED HOOPS in spite of (or perhaps because of?) its pleasing eccentricities, I found EVELEN RINGS borderline unreadable. The book is a structureless, rambling mess; it doesn't seem to have any purpose or thesis; and it veers unpredictably from "leadership lessons" to overly detailed accounts of periods of the author's life. The worst is that Jackson's "voice" in SACRED HOOPS--which was genuine, open, curious, and humble--has here transformed into self-indulgent, boastful, and n [...]

    • I thought this book was fun. It's pretty much what you would expect; the story details the backstory behind each of Jackson's 11 rings. It's fun to hear the stories behind such iconic championship teams such as the 95-96 Bulls and the 01-01 Lakers and to hear what goes into becoming a champion. Jackson sometimes goes off into tangents about his Zen practices which can be a both interesting and tedious attuned which is my chief complaint with the book, but overall it's an entertains read. I would [...]

    • Great behind the scenes stories of some already storied years with Bulls and Lakers, skillfully interwoven with valuable lessons both learned and applied in regards to leadership and management in melding individual talents into high-functioning teams, all under the glare of the klieg lights.It’s a book that will appeal even to the casual sports fan looking for pointers on how to apply soft skills in creating the secret sauce of chemistry, talent, alignment, focus, and teamwork that delivers e [...]

    • As a software engineer I really like Phil's approach to building team. It is aligned with agile/Scrum principles - he tries to create best environment for his players to develop themselves rather than commanding them what they exactly should do. It's great to know that agile works in sports too. I really would like to try some of Phil's crazy meditation rituals to create stronger bond in Scrum team.But comparing Kobe with Jordan was not necessary - I felt like it was only to create buzz around t [...]

    • I thought this book was amazing. It gave an insight on the legendary career of Phil Jackson. He changed the game of basketball with his unique take on team chemistry and "uncoachable" players. He thought players how to be selfless and that's why his teams were so successful. If you're a basketball fan this a book I would strongly recommend.
