Eleven Rings: The Soul of Success

By Phil Jackson and Hugh Delehanty
(The Penguin Press)

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. In Eleven Rings, Jackson and Hugh Delehanty draw on everything from humanistic philosophy to Zen meditation to Native American philosophy to illuminate Phil’s innovative approach to leadership that turned the hypercompetitive world of professional sports on its head.

“Jackson’s story, augmented by behind-the-scenes anecdotes involving Michael, Shaq, Kobe, and others, makes for great reading.”

Sacred Hoops: Spiritual Lessons of a Hardwood Warrior

By Phil Jackson and Hugh Delehanty

In this inspiring memoir, filled with stories about Michael Jordan and other members of the six-time champion Chicago Bulls, legendary coach Phil Jackson and Hugh Delehanty reveal how Phil directed his players to act with a clear mind—not thinking, just doing; to respect the enemy and be aggressive without being angry; and to stay calmly focused in the midst of chaos, so that the “me” becomes the servant of the “we.” Sacred Hoops isn’t just for sports fans, but for anyone interested in the potential of the human spirit.

Sacred Hoops is as deep and clear and pure an expression of the power of mindfulness and compassion in action as any I have ever encountered.”
