I personally met MR. Bill Russell in Menlo Park book signing. I got 4 copies authographed by him. One for me and my son , one for my brother - and one copy with a special dedication to my Dad, who was in the same batch with him at USF.
He rode in my Dad's Cadillac convertible during the USF NCAA victory parade.

Awesome book! What a great book on teamwork and leadership. It was always all about the team. If each of us had this attitude at work, what great corporations we would have. Working hard to build the corporation rather than just ourselves. Great book!

Very useful; helps with coach and life from a practical standpoint. Many of the practical points can be tied to Proverbs.
