Some great advice but all the sporting talk gets tedious
20 April 2019
Given the number of references to Bill Campbell by Eric Schmidt, Lazlo Bock and other luminaries - this book is long overdue. But even though we're warned that BC was originally a football coach and transferred many of those skills over to the business world - the number of sporting references which the book is larded with gets very tiresome.
Honestly, we're not kids, we don't need all this cheerleading. Most of BC's homespun wisdom is actually quite straightforward and mere mortals (ie: folks who aren't MIT / Stanford educated quants ) would probably figure these things for themselves in real life. Maybe it's just the geeks who need reminding about stuff like primacy of the team and so forth. Worth a read though
