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. Download and start listening now!
