About this title


"This book is about winning and leadership. But it is also about who I am and what I have learned."

-Bill Russell

He has been hailed as the greatest team player of the twentieth century. In Russell Rules, the star center of the Boston Celtics and five-time NBA Most Valuable Player reveals the eleven essential steps to attaining success in your professional and personal lives.

Leadership and teamwork are the hallmarks of becoming a champion, and in this book Russell shares the insights, the memories, and, most important, the enduring philosophy that made him a star. He talks about what leadership means to him, and how living by these eleven rules has influenced him in every aspect of his life, from being a single father raising a daughter to becoming a successful coach and mentor to others. Filled with rousing personal and professional anecdotes and never-before-revealed stories of his glory days playing with Celtic greats Bob Cousy, Tommy Heinsohn, Sam Jones, and their legendary coach Red Auerbach, Russell Rules offers inspiring lessons on teamwork, commitment, personal integrity, and what makes a winning team. This invaluable primer will help anyone become a champion...from the man who has successfully proven that playing-and living-by these rules really works.


There are those who would argue that Bill Russell was the greatest basketball player ever, not because of his physical talents so much as his ability to lead and work within a team. Recently, Russell has been a regular on the lecture circuit, helping businesses understand how to take the principles of "Celtic Pride" and apply it to their corporate cultures and customer relations. In Russell Rules, he breaks downs the qualities that helped to earn him 11 NBA championships into 11 leadership lessons that should enlighten just about anyone, including managers, entrepreneurs, and educators. --Harry C. Edwards
