Phil Jackson in conversation with John Salley

Nine years ago, on this day -- June 12 -- in 2013 we hosted a sold out evening at the Alex Theatre featuring Phil Jackson in conversation with John Salley. It wasn't a great Lakers season that year, and the evening opened with a standing ovation and 1400 fans chanting "we want Phil."

The occasion was the release of his memoir, "Eleven Rings," from Penguin Press. Salley who played for Jackson in both Chicago and Los Angeles opened the evening with, "I was just wondering, why did you cut me..."

This video, and the 3 excerpted clips on YouTube have over 1.2 million views. And Jackson is still one of the fastest to sign books --900 books in 55 minutes.

Enjoy the video...

in conversation with Amanda Kloots

Presented in association with Wilshire Boulevard Temple

discussing his book, "For You When I Am Gone:
Twelve Essential Questions to Tell a Life Story"

For You When I Am Gone: Twelve Essential Questions to Tell a Life Story
Writing an ethical will, a document that includes stories and reflections about your past, is an ancient tradition. It can include joy and regrets, and ultimately becomes both a way to remember a loved one who is gone and a primer on how to live a better, happier life. Beloved Rabbi Steve Leder has helped thousands of people to write their own ethical wills, and in this intimate book helps us write our own.
.
Because our culture privileges the material over the spiritual, we sometimes forget that our words carry greater value than any physical thing we can bequeath to our loved ones. Rabbi Leder provides all the right questions and prompts, including: What was your most painful regret and how can your loved ones avoid repeating it? When was a time you led with your heart instead of your head? What did you learn from your biggest failure?

Rabbi Steve Leder, the bestselling author of The Beauty of What Remains, presents a guide to writing a meaningful letter about your life. He is the senior rabbi of Wilshire Boulevard Temple in Los Angeles and is the author of five books: "The Extraordinary Nature of Ordinary Things," "More Money Tha...
