If you are like us, summer is the perfect season to catch up on some reading time that is usually put aside the rest of the year. Nothing beats a good book and a cold drink whilst chiling next to the pool/on the beach. Here is our list of must-have business books to enjoy your holidays and still learn something useful for your project.
