In Slam-Dunk Success, Scott and Norris share their parallel formulas for victory and prove that with the right tools, winning can happen anywhere. As a player Scott won three championships with the Los Angeles Lakers, and as coach he twice took the New Jersey Nets to the NBA finals and won coach of the year honors with the New Orleans Hornets. With every team his role changed, but his winning mentality never faltered.
As CEO of McKesson Water, Charlie Norris turned a $200 million company into a company that sold 10 years later for $1.1 billion, and as chairman of the board of Freshpet he helped lead the start-up from early stage testing to become a publicly traded company with a market value of over $350 million. In each job, he led with the same amount of conviction and care.
Their book - which grew from their unlikely friendship and realization that two men from completely different backgrounds could have the same leadership ideals - breaks down their keys to motivating others, negotiating deals, and creating prosperity from scratch. Their blueprint includes lessons on listening, turning failure into learning opportunities, and delegating authority with extreme precision.
Leadership is a full-time job, and Byron Scott and Charlie Norris' story is a guidebook for leaders in all fields and in any position looking to better both their careers and their lives. Champions are formed when people make those around them better, and this book shows how you can be a winner every day.

Any additional comments?
One of the best books I've ever read. Easy to follow and understand. I can relate to an everyday life, not just basketball or a multi million business.
