Vern Gambetta is, as far as I am concerned, one of the forefathers of this entire industry and is riding a career approaching 4 decades. I recall at a Perform Better Summit a few years back, Vern mentioned that he had to that date (August 1) read 106 books on the year. His recommendation at the time turned out to be one of my favorites–The Talent Code–that I’ve since read and listened to three times so I was  very excited to hear his top recommendations of all time. Coach Gambetta did not disappoint. Enjoy.
