Read to lead


Jeff Brown and Jesse Wisnewski


Baker Books






236 pages


Brown and Wisnewski have written a very organized and easy-to-read book about reading and how this habit can make you a leader and give your career a boost. Their tome is divided into three parts: Why you need to read books; The books you need to read; and The smarter way to read books. These categories, among many subjects, cover such interesting topics as reading excuses, building a reading plan, doubling (or tripling) your reading speed and why you should join (or start) a book club.

Although the book seems mainly directed at those who read little and would like to improve their reading for business or career reasons, anyone at all, voracious readers even, have much to learn and glean from Read to Lead.
