More than any other sports figure of the modern era, Bill Russell combined sheer athletic dominance with a depth of character that truly set him apart, both on and off the basketball court. In Russell Rules, the Boston Celtics legend shares his personal life lessons—eleven 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 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.

    " Awesome book! What a great book on teamwork and leadership. It was always all about the team. If each of us had this attitude at work, what great corporations we would have. Working hard to build the corporation rather than just ourselves. Great book! "
