It is apparent from reading Eleven Rings: The Soul of Success, that if Jackson had not become the legendary coach of the Chicago Bulls and the Los Angeles Lakers, he would have become legendary in some other field. Jackson had the kind of drive and determination, paired with skills and intelligence, to become a success in any number of arenas. But Chicago Stadium, the United Center and Staples Center were the arenas he chose, and millions of fans thank him for that. This is the story of his eleven championship rings, the most by any NBA coach in history, and it is a fascinating and inspirational tale. The book is brand new and in flawless condition, with Jackson's signature on the title page without inscription, signed by hand at Vroman's bookstore in Pasadena at a recent signing event. Will be packed in bubble-wrap and shipped in a sturdy box to keep it in immaculate condition while it makes its way to your doorstep. Bookseller Inventory # ABH264
