Can you remember the last book you read? Not a magazine article, blog, or social media post- an actual book, cover to cover. According to the Pew Research Center, the number of non-readers has almost tripled since 1978.

We’re here to show you that books are still a good investment that deserve your attention, at least for 20 minutes a day. We’d also like to extend a special invitation for you to join our exclusive book club. 

Finding time to read a book can be difficult with a busy schedule, but think of it as exercise. Many of us set aside time to exercise our bodies, why not make time to exercise our brains? Reading puts your imagination to work. It boosts creativity and helps you generate new ideas.

Reading can increase verbal and emotional intelligence, expand your vocabulary, and make you a better communicator. The benefits are many, and ones that all great leaders should possess.

Convinced? If so, we’d like to invite you to join our “book of the month” series! Starting September 2015, we’ll introduce a book that you should be reading, the benefits of reading this book, and how it might apply to your business. Simply comment on the “book of the month” blog post and tell us why you enjoyed. One lucky commenter will win a copy of John Hewitt’s new book: iCompete: My Extraordinary Strategy for Winning.
