Tell Me What You're Reading #13 Keith Grossman: Bad Blood, American Kingpin, Red Notice, etc.
Our guest in this episode is Keith Grossman who when we spoke was the Global Chief Revenue Officer of Bloomberg Media. Keith has since joined marketing and technology group Engine as its chief operating officer.
When my daughter Melanie introduced me to Keith and I asked Keith to tell me what he was reading, he rattled off an impressive list of books. Keith subsequently posted on Instagram a list of 32 of the books he has recently read and recommends.
Keith broke up his recommended list into five categories, leadership (6 books), books to challenge my thinking (13), you can’t make this stuff up (5), random and caught me by surprise (6) and finally fiction (2). The three books that we are going to discuss today Bad Blood, American Kingpin and Red Notice were included in the category “You can't make this stuff up”.
