Sacred Hoops: Spiritual Lessons of a Hardwood Warrior

This year I think I've read every "Three Habits" or "Twelve Principles" or "Seven Salamis" of "Effective CEOs" as a self-prescribed hobby. No book did this job better for me than Phil Jackson's Sacred Hoops. I know absolutely nothing about basketball but I do know who Michael Jordan is. To imagine that MJ had "a boss" was sort of hard for me to imagine, and this book is about the story of MJ's boss and how he motivated his players' path towards winning with compassion and love. It was a surprisingly law7-al book that I wish all CEOs would read.
