About the Author

Bestselling Author Jerry Gladstone is highly regarded in the self-development industry as a speaker and success coach.
At the age of twenty-six he founded a small fine art company and grew it into an international business that specialized in the production, distribution, and marketing of a wide variety of entertainment fine art. Jerry's business associations have given him unique access to movie studios and celebrities including 20th Century Fox, The Walt Disney Company, Warner Bros., DreamWorksSKG, Apple Corps Limited,  Jim Davis' Garfield, Elvis Presley Enterprises,Frank Sinatra Enterprises, HBO, Sony, United Media, MGM, and Getty Images,among others.
In conversations with "Rocky" himself, Sylvester Stallone, and other super achievers, Jerry observed a "Common Thread" to success that inspired him to author his first book, 
The Common Thread of Overcoming Adversity and Living Your Dreams. Over the years Jerry has spent a significant amount of time interacting with and interviewing Academy Award and Grammy winners,Super Bowl and World Series champions, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame legends,Olympians, and boxing and UFC World Champions.
Jerry was born in Brooklyn, New York, and raised in Long Island. He and his wife, Brooke,currently live in Florida with their three children, Austin, Allie, and Emma.Jerry experienced low self-esteem and self-doubt and struggled academically as a youngster, but through his parents and sports, he learned that determination,dedication, and perseverance is a winning recipe for success.


"Somehow, Jerry Gladstone has gotten dozens of famous people to candidly discuss their successes and failures. It is the cautionary tales that separate The Common Thread from other books of its kind. You will learn a lot, you will not be bored!"

Bill O'ReillyBestselling author and host of the Fox News channel program, The O'Reilly Factor

"People search for ways to succeed and achieve; they will find the answers they seek in "The Common Thread." Through well-known celebrities they admire and respect, the reader will see a little of themselves in this book, motivating and guiding them to pursue their dreams."

Mike EruzioneCaptain, 1980 "Miracle on Ice" USA gold medal hockey team

"The Common Thread Book is awesome! Jerry Gladstone shows how we all are meant for success."

Gloria Gaynor
"The Queen of Disco"
"In The Common Thread Jerry Gladstone artfully interviews dozens of Hollywood's A list, super athletes and chronic over achievers and manages to get to that thin piece of cloth that is the common thread between all of them.
The book is filled with inspiring stories, real life anecdotes and nuggets of wisdom that simply cannot be found anywhere else."

Tom Terwilliger, Mr. America
Bestselling Author of 7 Rules of Achievement

"I am thrilled to be part of "The Common Thread!" Both Garfield and I have had the privilege to work with Jerry Gladstone over the years. With his winning attitude and the many stories Jerry has shared in his book, there is no doubt we can all benefit and be empowered to reach our fullest potential."

Jim DavisEmmy award-winner and creator of "Garfield"

"The Common Thread book is like a three point shot for anybody looking to win at the game of success!"

Keith Askins3x NBA Champion
