National Book Lovers Day: Our favourite reads

On National Book Lovers Day, we wanted to share our top business reads for you to enjoy and be inspired by.

Today (Monday 9th August) marks National Booklover’s Day. So, what better way of celebrating than with a bookish post, or to be precise a business book post.

We love to share our book recommendations around the team, sometimes fiction, sometimes business inspired.

But, on this day, we wanted to share our top business reads for you to enjoy and be inspired by. Some of these you may have heard of whilst others may be new to you.

So, without further ado, here are our top business book recommendations.
