This audiobook will have special appeal to basketball junkies and fans of NBA great Bill Russell. Memories--personal and professional--provide an inside look at basketball in the days when Russell and the Celtics ruled the courts. Narrator Rif Hutton reads with passion, as if articulating his own memories and beliefs. He addresses the listener with sincerity, infusing even tedious passages with enthusiasm. Some of the "rules" are recycled standards of the business/self-help genre; others don't quite make the transition from basketball to business. That said, there are valuable insights into teamwork and leadership and interesting anecdotes about the good old days when basketball players weren't traded like cards, all read with feeling. E.S.
