- Trillion Dollar Coach

I’m halfway through the “Trillion Dollar Coach” and loving every bit of it.

The book is about Bill Cambell, put together by Eric Schmidt, Jonathan Rosenberg, and Alan Eagle.

I had not heard about Bill and his work before this book. He was a mentor to Steve Jobs, Larry Page, Sergey Brin, Tim Cook, Scott Cook, Sundar Pichai, and many more.

His “coaching” and mentoring of all these silicon valley executives have added more than Trillion Dollars of value, hence the name of the book.

Keval Desai, a general partner at InterWest Partners, recommended this book on the latest episode of Dollar Gujarati.

Keval was lucky(his words) to interact with Bill Campell during his time at Google.

Anyone interested in venture capital, silicon valley, or product management should look up Keval Desai, and listening to this episode would be a good start.

I might write up a summary of my favorite principles from the Trillion Dollar Coach soon. 🤞🏻
