Taking the bull by the horns - a legendary basketball coach reveals his secrets. This is a modern classic of motivation, team leadership and Zen insight from the triumphant coach of the all-conquering mid-'90s Chicago Bulls. It is updated for a new readership.

Everybody has seen the image: Michael Jordan soaring at an impossible height towards a defenseless basket, the ball raised above his head in the classic Air Jordan position. The upturned faces of the crowd blurred dots pointed expectantly towards the flying legend. Yet another NBA pennant in the bag: another triumph for the most successful team - and coach - in basketball history.

Now the man behind it all has revealed his secrets in a memoir quite unlike any other. Nine-times-NBA-title-winning coach with both the Chicago Bulls and the Los Angeles Lakers, Phil Jackson is the most successful coach of all time - renowned for his Zen approach to the game and his unparalleled motivational skills.

In this updated version of his thought-provoking memoir he reveals how he directs his players to act with a clear mind - not thinking, just doing; to respect the enemy and be aggressive without anger or violence; to live in the moment and stay calmly focused in the midst of chaos; and to put the "me" in the service of the "we".

All lessons applicable to any person's life, not just a professional basketball player's. With an updated introduction explaining the issues facing Jackson's current team - and today's reader - "Sacred Hoops" is an extraordinary expression of the power of mindfulness, compassion and dedication.
