If you had the chance to sit down with one of the world’s top female executives, what would you ask them?

We know what we would ask: What are you reading? Books are not only an enormous source of knowledge, but they can reveal a lot about someone’s character and business acumen. For instance, wealthy people are known to be avid readers. Warren Buffett reads between 600 and 800 pages a day!

But the average executive isn’t reading the average airport novel or immersing themselves in an entertainment magazine. Instead, they’re pouring over educational materials, newspapers, business journals, and autobiographies. SpaceX founder, Elon Musk, famously said that he gained most of his knowledge about rocket ships through reading!

The benefits of reading include stress relief, increased vocabulary, improved writing skills, and reading gives your brain a workout.
