Since many of us spend increasing amounts of time looking at short bits of information on screens, balancing our brains with reading books can be a great antidote.
Recently Joynture’s Current Bit explored some nonfiction picks for the entrepreneurial set. Today, we’ve got some recommended fiction.
“It’s got everything from great writing (sentence structure, paragraph structure), drama, and historical significance to the most amazingly expressed themes of despair and hope and human perseverance,” Preziosi says.
Kornfeld says it’s a “2005 crime/thriller novel by Don Winslow, based on the DEA’s involvement with the War on Drugs. Great easy read. Filled with action, conspiracy, sex, family interaction.”
BusinessInsider.com also recently explored top books for entrepreneurs. Its list of 21 fiction and nonfiction picks includes perennially favorite author Ayn Rand. Billionaire Mark Cuban says Rand’s The Fountainhead is required reading.
