Good listen, but...

...way better unabridged. I first read Sacred Hoops maybe 5 years ago, and instantly fell in love with both the book and Phil Jackson. When I found it available here on audible (and read by Phil Jackson himself, no less!) I jumped on the purchase. It wasn't until my download was complete and I saw a runtime of less than 2 hours that I realized it's abridged.
It's a great listen full of deep insight, and it's wonderful hearing it in Phil's own voice, but it's missing so many of the vivid and meaningful stories from the full book. I greatly missed the lessons from Phil's time coaching an unorthodox and chronically tardy team in Puerto Rico, or the surprisingly calm picture of how Rodman came to be a Bull, and the tidbit about the league fining Jordan for switching back to #23 after returning from retirement. And these are just a few that I remember after years away from the book.
Bottom line, I do recommend this audiobook, but beg for an unabridged version. Anyone interested would be better served by picking up a copy of the actual book.

Changed me

This book was all I could ask for and more. It was an incredible and detailed timeline of Phil's career and then tied it all in with bonding, friendship, and peace. It changed the way I look at basketball. It is a definite "should read".

Great book for Phil Jackson fans and non fans.

I like audio books where the author is the narrator. Phil has a great voice and makes listening to his book very easy.
