10 Books Every Marketer Should Read in 2016
Posted at 03th of Mar, 13:30

Today is World Book Day, in celebration of all that is readable, analog or, as is increasingly common, digital. An interesting study was conducted several years ago in which a group of economists studied data on what factors in childhood lead to greater success for the subjects when they reached adulthood. To the surprise of many, it wasn’t how rich their parents were, the colour of their skin, whether the parents stayed married or divorced, the quality of the neighborhood they grew up in, or even the schools they attended.

 

The data pointed the researchers to an interesting correlation: the most successful people in the study, of all backgrounds, shared a single commonality while growing up that the comparison group of less successful subjects did not: they had a greater number of and ease of access to books at home than other households.
