    Olen Steinhauer, Bernard Minier and Dan Fesperman are also worth a look.

    Reading "Sapiens a Brief History of Humankind" by Yuval Noah Harari. This is brilliant, stimulating, informative, factual, challenging, accessible easy to read full of fascinating facts and stuff

    The Art of Execution

    https://www.amazon.com/Art-Execution.../dp/085719495X

    Love this book as it talks about ways to sell. Also goes into trading personas.

    currently reading aloud (to my Mum) Kane and Abel by Jefferey Archer. Its a story of two boys with nothing in common except being born on the same day in 1906, and how their live eventually entwine as they climb to their fortunes.

    We've just got past the 1929 crash bit (gulp)


    • Kane and Abel is a 1979 novel by British author Jeffrey Archer.
    • It reached No. 1 on the New York Times best-seller list.
    • Kane & Abel is among the top 100 list of best-selling books in the world
