Description

The team behind How Google Works returns with management lessons from legendary coach and business executive Bill Campbell, whose mentoring of some of our most successful modern entrepreneurs has helped create well over a trillion dollars in market value.

Bill Campbell played an instrumental role in the growth of several prominent companies, such as Google, Apple, and Intuit, fostering deep relationships with Silicon Valley visionaries, including Steve Jobs, Larry Page, and Eric Schmidt. In addition, this business genius mentored dozens of other important leaders on both coasts, from entrepreneurs to venture capitalists to educators to football players, leaving behind a legacy of growing companies, successful people, respect, friendship, and love after his death in 2016.

Leaders at Google for more than a decade, Eric Schmidt, Jonathan Rosenberg, and Alan Eagle experienced firsthand how the man fondly known as Coach Bill built trusting relationships, fostered personal growth - even in those at the pinnacle of their careers - inspired courage, and identified and resolved simmering tensions that inevitably arise in fast-moving environments. To honor their mentor and inspire and teach future generations, they have codified his wisdom in this essential guide.

Based on interviews with more than 80 people who knew and loved Bill Campbell, Trillion Dollar Coach explains the Coach’s principles and illustrates them with stories from the many great people and companies with which he worked. The result is a blueprint for forward-thinking business leaders and managers that will help them create higher performing and faster moving cultures, teams, and companies.

Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook.

A great topic but a miss in the conception

The topic was incredibly good but the way they made it, with too much details and not enough clarity missed the quality the book could have been. A great work in term of research and lacking a clear plan in the development.

Great regarding the Coach’s life; Ok on how-to

This was a great book to learn about Bill Campbell but was just ok on the how-to aspects of being a great coach

This is a eulogy, not a "playbook."

TL/DR: Apply good football coaching principles to the business world = help silicon valley companies make trillions.

If you're looking for leadership & growth insights, you'll get what you're looking for more densely & expediently from the likes of Peter Drucker or John Maxwell.

This book is ultimately a massive name-check storytelling session for silicon valley power players to eulogize their beloved coach. The best thing it accomplishes is animating the story of an inspirational, colorful leader, and perhaps show those who aren't in the know that coaching is necessary for growth. While these are both valuable things, they hardly amount to a "playbook" as the title suggests.

What really gets me, though, is the narrator. He does this awful thing where he feigns the accents of contributors to this book when he's reading their passages. Is it really necessary for this white guy to mock an Indian accent? These passages are written in English, same as the rest who aren't ESL speakers.

Bill was an amazing coach. Book was very redundant

The Hard Things about Hard Things covers most of the same things and goes into more detail about specific topics, but this book is good if you're looking for more anecdotal evidence of how great a guy Bill Campbell was.

I didn't learn much from this book

I bought this book with high expectations as I have read the authors' previous book on "How Google works"

What I learned from this book can be put in two lines. Bill Campbell was a great coach. And it is good to have a coach for anybody especially for the top level executives of a company.

I would say it could have been compressed in to an online article, rather than a book of its own. I have no idea how this book is getting so many 5 stars.

Don’t bother, there are better books on leadership and coaching

This book is full of one sided anecdotes and fluffy stories. Reads more like a eulogy...

A Heart-centered Counterpoint

Everything in this book is actionable - it’s just different than most business or leadership books because Bill Campbell was different than most business people. The point to bring the heart, sincere relationship, “soft” skills, love, and family into the work place is well communicated and timely. It was difficult to distill the traits of such a enigmatic personality into a “playbook” I am sure but they did a good job.

Ok

Going through the book I found myself wondering how much of Bill’s success was him being a truly great coach and how much was him being able to bring basic football team building skills to an industry full of high achievers and big egos. Some really good ideas here combined with a lot of what would be obvious to any seasoned manager/coach. Have to agree with others who said the book reads a bit like a eulogy.

A masterpiece for the keen-eyed

While it may feel slow or more an ode to a great man than a playbook, if you look for it the wisdom is there.
Its one of those things that seems at times. obvious, not new or even simple, and that is why it does a good job hiding the true value and power of the principles and wisdom it contains.

Outstanding

The performance is smooth and easy to listen to. I enjoy the mature voice of the narrator, it meshes well with the coach concept at the core of the material.

I now understand why this book has been so successful. There's little "new" material but it is delivered through new stories delivering deeper understanding and appreciation. I highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys leadership material, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I purchase books in one of three ways (just like everyone else), audio, digital and printed. I tend to choose which medium based on the book. Something that is intended to be more entertaining or light hearted will be an audiobook purchase. A book that provides more benefit from being read more slowly and deliberately due to its complexity will be an ebook purchase. The book that I will refer back to for different chapters, bookmarks and highlights will be a printed book purchase. Finally, there are those select few books that impact my very being, who I am as a person. Books like The 7 Habits, How to Win Friends and Influence People and The Art of War are books I purchase in all three formats so I can get every benefit from them. I've found consuming books in all three ways offers something new each time, moreso than simply rereading or relistening to the material. Trillion Dollar Coach will be part of that list as soon as I get to the book store.

100% praise, no lessons

This book tries to be both a biography, and a eulogy, but unfortunately fails at both. The main problem with it is the amount of sugar-coating of Bill. "Everything he did was great", "he was always supportive", "he LOVED the people", etc. It's all "good" and "great", he never did anything wrong. We all know that no person is that simple. But I guess when you have half of silicon valley CEOs as friends you can rewrite the history!

The funny part is how phrases that "he LOVED the people and put them first" are backed up by stories like when a person who was important to the company and did a good job decided to quit and Bill goes "He betrayed us. F**k him." Yeah, talk about love for people. To me a lot of examples sounded like he cared for the company results, and was nice to people only as long as they played along.

Another funny example was when the author was highlighting Bill's commitment to "the team". So Bill was hobby-coaching a kids' team in his free time. And the commitment example is he was preparing plays the team should execute during board meetings in one of the companies. Seriously? And for the author it's a great thing, showing how he values the kids. And the company he's on the board of? I guess it's not important. And only in the previous chapter author was telling about Bill berating a player on his team for having "other commitments" and that "you have to be 100% focused on one thing"; right before saying Bill himself was doing random stuff in meetings. But no, he's a perfect man.

To be useful, the book needs to tell the truth. To draw lessons, you need to see both sides. Blindly praising Bill doesn't do anyone any good.

Unstructured anecdotes

Despite it's shortness I really struggled to finish this book. It seemed like a collection of rather unstructured opinions and anecdotes about the seemingly flawless Bill Campbell.
But... maybe I'm just disappointed, because I had high expectations in the authors or because I compare it to Ray Dalios Principles.

Solid Book

Not too many surprises. Solid insights (that are rather well known already). The story itself is not too interesting.

kind of a cool story

besides flthe fact that the hole book is split in sections and not named chapters it is again not that cool to handle...
from the insight it seems to be a quite interesting person with some decent approaches.
