In Russell Rules, the Boston Celtics legend shares his personal life lessons, 11 essential steps that can empower anyone to become a winner in their professional and personal lives. Leadership and teamwork are the twin towers of Russell's personal philosophy, and in Russell Rules he talks about them not as abstract concepts, but as a day-to-day elements of a successful life. He speaks with authority of how the great Celtics teams of the 1960s not only nurtured the basketball skills of their individual players, but created an environment in which those skills could be best expressed, and of how the principles he learned have influenced him in every aspect of his life, from being a single father raising a daughter to becoming a successful coach and mentor to others. Filled with rousing personal and professional anecdotes and never-before-revealed stories of his glory days playing with the Celtics greats Bob Cousy, Tommy Heinsohn, and Sam Jones and their legendary coach Red Auerbach, Russell Rules is both a fascinating sports memoir and an inspiring testament to the power of teamwork, commitment, and personal integrity.
