Trillion Dollar Coach: The Leadership Playbook of Silicon Valley's Bill Campbell
by Eric Schmidt (Author), Jonathan Rosenberg (Author), Alan Eagle (Author)

Most executives don’t think they need a coach. They are wrong. The best athletes have coaches. The best athletes understand that, in order to get better, they need someone who cares to tell them about their blindspots. Bill Campbell was one of Silicon Valley’s most legendary coaches.

He coached some of the greatest: Larry Page (Google), Steve Jobs (Apple), Ben Horowitz (Andreessen Horowitz), Brad Smith (Intuit), Sheryl Sandberg (Facebook), Jeff Bezos (Amazon) and many others.


In this book, 3 of his disciples (Eric Schmidt, Jonathan Rosenberg and Alan Eagle) unveil the method behind what you might call the “Campbell School of Management”.

The book is well written and its structure will allow you to get value quickly. Key points are called out as quotes throughout the book and the authors writing style is pleasant.

All in all, this is a great book. It should be required reading for any tech leader. If you find that some of its content and style is familiar to the book “How Google Works”, don’t be surprised: Eric Schmidt and Jonathan Rosenberg also wrote that one.
