5.0 out of 5 stars Sacred Hoops: Spiritual Lessons as a Hardwood Warrior, 18 July 2009
This review is from: Sacred Hoops: Spiritual Lessons as a Hardwood Warrior (Paperback)
Sacred Hoops: Spiritual Lessons as a Hardwood Warrior

Fantastic book. Phil Jackson explicitly presents a beauty of basketball. He explains what it means to form a successful team and what conditions have to be satisfied to win an NBA championship. He also describes his past and Zen philosophy. Everything kept in a very interesting form. Very readable.

Worth reading and absolutely 'must read' for all basketball fans.

This book was great for an explanation of Jackson's coaching philosophy. I was looking for insights into how he lead his talent for lessons for business leaders and this book delivered. A refreshing alternative to command-and-control, Jackson's mix of Zen and Indian philosophy in another context could seem flakey: from someone who took the Bulls to 5 chanpionships in 9 years, it's amazing and inspiring. A great book from an outstanding coach.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great story, but only a good book., 27 May 2013

This review is from: Sacred Hoops: Spiritual Lessons as a Hardwood Warrior (Paperback)
A great story, but only a good book. Really this is what I think is honest to say about this work. This is because for as much as I have loved reading about the making of the best basketball team in history from such a privileged angle and for as much as I love the man himself and what he preaches for, yet to be objective the narrative does not live up to the wealth of the content.
Rhythm is probably what is missing the most, with frequent gaps in the story and a general fluidity that is severely lacking. Basically, the story does not flow as it should and often it struggles through meaningless yet lenghty stretches only to rush over episodes which would deserve to be explored in full depth.
But this is from an objective point of view and only relating to the literary side of the book; personally I would recommend it to anyone and talking about the content this opera should be studied, and well, by anyone willing to coach any team in any given sport.
A marvellous lesson from a marvellous teacher. Thus five stars and thus READ IT!!

This review is from: Sacred Hoops: Spiritual Lessons as a Hardwood Warrior (Paperback)
This is a very easy read about one of the most famous coaches in world sport making his way in the basketball world and the lessons he learned along the way. There are also some interesting sections on how he attempted to manage a sports star, Michael Jordan, who had the sports world and beyond at his feet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mind opening, 28 Jun 2010
This review is from: Sacred Hoops: Spiritual Lessons as a Hardwood Warrior (Paperback)
Ok if you play basketball with other guys if you are over the one-o-one game,if you understood that passing the ball and moving on the court is more rewarding that scoring with a percentage of less than 20%, if you think to be the best player but your team regularly looses games, than read this book and start seeing. Get the game to another level, I changed my game thank to Phil and it's really rewarding. I took a star off because it can get boring the last pages :)
