About the Author

Five-time NBA MVP and twelve-time All-Star, Bill Russell was the centerpiece of the Celtics dynasty that won eleven NBA championships. As a major league coach, Russell won two additional championships--the first African-American to do so. He is considered the father of the modern pro game and one of the most significant Americans of the twentieth century in sports. His three previous books include the national bestseller Russell Rules. Alan Steinberg is the author of numerous books, including the New York Times bestseller Behind the Mask and Black Profiles in Courage with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.


The names Bill Russell and Red Auerbach are synonymous with success, pride, and passion, but this elegant and well-written book illuminates the real rules for achievement by reviewing a lifetime of interaction, affection, and admiration between an athlete and his coach. Russell became one of the first prominent professional African American basketball players when he joined the Boston Celtics in 1957, and Auerbach was his coach. A reader knowing nothing about basketball will acquire signal insights on achieving serenity, on standing up for what is right, and on never overlooking that one may direct another but never by negating that person's true abilities. Verdict: This is an essential read for Celtics fans and those curious about the rapport between individuals who set aside preconceived notions and focus on what each person may offer in a relationship.-Gilles Renaud, Ontario Court of Justice, Cornwall Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
