An in-depth and entertaining unauthorized biography from the "New York Times" best-selling author of "Badasses. "("Publisher s Weekly)"
Phil Jackson is widely considered to be one of the greatest coaches in the history of basketball. As head coach of the Chicago Bulls from 1989 to 1998, he led Michael Jordan to six championships. In 1999, Jackson switched allegiances and moved to the Los Angeles Lakers, racking up five titles in ten years. All told, he has eleven championship rings more titles than any other NBA coach in history.
Jackson has written several candid books about his life and career, but now "New York Times-"bestselling author Peter Richmond turns an unprecedented light on Jackson s whole life. "Phil Jackson: Lord of the Rings" is the personal, definitive, and revealing biography of an unrivalled sports genius."

Review quote

Praise for "Badasses "by Peter Richmond

"No NFL team ever strutted any better on the dark side than the Oakland Raiders of the 1970s. In Badasses, Peter Richmond chronicles the treacheries, debauchery, and yes, the winning, with appropriate literary gusto. Lock the doors, close the windows, send the kids tobed before reading."--Leigh Montville, author of "Ted Williams: The Biography of an American Hero"

"I always thought the Raiders were bad, but I never realized how bad -- and how good - until I read Peter Richmond's smart, funny, rowdy tale."--Robert Lipsyte, former "New York Times "columnist and author of" Center Field")

"Once upon a time, there lived a band of larger-than-life misfits who lorded over the NFL. Dirtbags! Castoffs! Has-beens! Deviants! You name 'em, John Madden's Raiders had 'em. And, thanks to Richmond's tireless reporting and vibrant prose, so does Badasses."--Jeff Pearlman, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Boys Will Be Boys: The Glory Days and Party Nights of the Dallas Cowboys Dynasty "

"Richmond's book is a treasure trove of uproarious anecdotes skillfully woven into a seasonal chronicle spiced with sharp player profiles...This rollicking read reminds us that football is a game that's meant to be played hard--and to be fun."--"Library Journal"
