I am at the time of year where I am looking to build my reading list. Does anyone have recommendation?

I was looking at something like these:
"The Seven Secrets of Successful Coaches" by Jeff Janssen and Greg Dale
"How to Develop Relentless Competitors" by Jeff Janssen
"Game Strategies and Tactics for Basketball: Bench Coaching for Success" by Kevin Sivils

I recently read "InSideOut Coaching: How Sports Can Transform Lives" by Joe Ehrmann. I thought it started out very strong then sort of fizzled. The author did a great job on describing problems in coaching but sort of got stuck there and never really took the next step.

Also try to find books on leadership that are NOT sports related. I think you can pick up a lot of good stuff from those. Books that are written by or about successful people from all walks of life.

I've been really bad over the last year reading any books about basketball. Trying to evolve from a coach running a business to a business owner and having a kid has had an influence on that.

Here are some books that I've enjoyed over the last year. I think you could certainly learn lessons from them and apply them to basketball. In fact, I have.

1. The Sports Gene - David Epstein
2. Breaking The Habit of Being Yourself - Joe Dispenza
3. Good to Great - Jim Collins
4. Problem Solving 101 - Ken Watanbe
5. Choose Yourself - James Altrucher
6. Remote - David Hansson, Jason Fried
7. The New Psycho-Cybernetics - Maxwell Martz (Not done with this yet but it's good so far)
8. Teach Like A Champion - Doug Lemov

I also spent a lot of time reading some books and a lot of time reading newsletters that entail history, economics, law, investing, but they also had a political slant so I don't want to go down that road.
