Book Pick of the Week: The Digital Identity Crisis

The Digital Identity Crisis explores who we are when so much of our data is stored online, and so little of that data is actually owned and controlled by ourselves. While consumers continue to say they are concerned about the use of their data, they also increasingly share personal information with corporate entities, governments and a widening circle of friends and associates.


 


The book explores the trends shaping identity, including business issues, policies on identity data privacy and ownership, and the future of decision-making informed by identity data.

About Rooly:

As president and co-founder, Rooly Eliezerov leads Gigya’s overall product strategy and development. Rooly began his career in architecture, but felt limited by the constraints of physical buildings, which, once built, could be easily adapted to the needs of people.

 Rooly thus chose to focus on designing virtual environments in the digital world, moving into the Internet advertising and marketing industry, with a focus on product development. He, along with Eyal Magen and Eran Kutner, founded Gigya in 2006, guiding the company through multiple stages of funding and strategic pivots. Over the course of eleven years, Gigya grew into the acknowledged leader in the customer identity management space, before being acquired by SAP in September, 2017.

Before joining Gigya, Rooly served on the board of Metacafe, held the position of General Manager at SmartShopper and was the VP of Products & Marketing at Hotbar. He holds a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the Pratt Institute in New York City.

Kindle Pick of the Week: Getting to Us: How Great Coaches Make Great Teams

This is still a great read, even with college basketball taking hits left and right amid allegations from agents and middlemen and their involvement with players and teams.

Coaches always stand out as important people in our lives.

What makes a coach great? How do great coaches turn a collection of individuals into a coherent “us”?


This a compelling read as the book is broken up in sections- with coaches that interesting stories and back stories to tell.
Seth Davis, one of the keenest minds in sports journalism, has been thinking about that question for twenty-five years. It’s one of the things that drove him to write the definitive biography of college basketball’s greatest coach, John Wooden, Wooden: A Coach’s Life. But John Wooden coached a long time ago. The world has changed, and coaching has too, tremendously. Seth Davis decided to embark on a proper investigation to get to the root of the matter. 

In Getting to Us, Davis probes and prods the best of the best from the landscape of active coaches of football and basketball, college and pro—from Urban Meyer, Dabo Swinney, and Jim Harbaugh to Mike Krzyzewski, Tom Izzo, Jim Boeheim, Brad Stevens, Geno Auriemma, and Doc Rivers—to get at the fundamental ingredients of greatness in the coaching sphere. There’s no single right way, of course—part of the great value of this book is Davis’s distillation of what he has learned about different types of greatness in coaching, and what sort of leadership thrives in one kind of environment but not in others. Some coaches have thrived at the college level but not in the pros. Why? What’s the difference? Some coaches are stern taskmasters, others are warm and cuddly; some are brilliant strategists but less emotionally involved with their players, and with others it’s vice versa.

A pre-order right now that comes out March 6.
