In stock (can be backordered)
If you can read this, you may be among a certain group people called “the talented tenth;” it is a gift. Yet it is not a given that you’ve made a habit of reading for personal growth, success and significance. Many people never pick up another book after they graduate from college. This book tells you in the face that one who can read but does not, really isn’t any better off than the one who cannot read at all.
Schooling and education don’t mean the same thing. With compelling research about the power of reading from childhood to adulthood and over a 1000 classic quotes on books, reading, writing and learning, this little book will inspire and empower you to do just what its title says: Read! Leaders are readers; readers are leaders. Growth, success and significance are just a book away.
