“Books have changed my life as a coach.
Several years ago I started to notice a pattern among the world’s most successful people throughout history. Over and over again I would hear stories about how important reading was to their success. So I decided to follow suit and it has turned out to be the best decision I could have made for my career.
I put together my list of the 101 most influential books that I have read so far in my life. They are ordered in terms of importance for me. The point of the list is to not encourage you to go out and read all of these books. Instead, I just want to provide an idea of all the different types of books that I believe could potentially help a coach. Pick one and just get started. After you read a few, stop looking at the list and just ask questions. Then go find a book that can help you answer the questions you face.”
