    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. This is the story of a preacher's kid from North Dakota who grew up to be one of the most innovative leaders of our time. Eleven times, Jackson led his teams to the ultimate goal: the NBA championship - six times with the Chicago Bulls and five times with the Los Angeles Lakers. This book is full of revelations.

    Story

    Phil Jackson is the "Zen Master" and the narrator, Matt Walton sounds like "Monster Truck Dude." The number of names mispronounced should be embarrassing to not only the narrator himself, but to everybody who put their stamp of approval on this audio project. It was actually distracting!

    Also, I would bet a fair amount of coin that Matt Walton has never played a sport in his life, which is not a requirement to do good voice work, EXCEPT WHEN YOU NARRATE A BOOK CENTERED AROUND SPORTS! When reading the team's record, he would take what is written in the book, 21-5 for example, and read it as, "The team's record was twenty one five", instead of saying twenty one and five!

    I enjoyed the book, was able to power through Matt Walton's shortcomings to get Phil Jackson's messages. My big takeaway was that it was an excellent coaching book, even without any x's and o's. I bought a few of the hardback copies for myself and a some fellow coaching buddies.
