“Trillion Dollar Coach – The Leadership Playbook of Silicon Valley’s Bill Campbell” by Eric Schmidt, Jonathan Rosenberg, and Alan Eagle

Ranking: 3.5/5

This book is an ode to Bill Campbell and the legacy that he left to so many Silicon Valley leaders. It is written like a playbook (appropriate given Bill Campbell’s college football background) and the authors attempt to codify Campbell’s leadership and coaching practices. I didn’t find the book super practical, but I did find the stories inspiring. I loved that Campbell seems to have left the legacy of human connection, trust and love as important business values. These aren’t values that I would think to associate with Silicon Valley so if that was his gift, then I am a fan.

I think that this is a great read for people who get inspiration from people’s personal stories. Bill Campbell had an impressive career and he was a great leadership role model.
