Phil Jackson is an American original. A two-time All-American at the University of North Dakota, in 1967 he was drafted by the New York Knicks, where he played for 11 years and was a member of the 1970 and 1973 championship teams. Jackson guided the Chicago Bulls to six NBA championships in his nine years as head coach from 1989-1998, and guided the LA Lakers to three titles as their head coach from 1999-2004. Hugh Delehanty is the editor-in-chief of AARP publications, who has written about sports and psychology for Sports Illustrated, Tricycle: The Buddhist Review, and other publications.

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.
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!!
