As you probably know by now, I’m a very big believer in the idea that leaders are learners. I heard it said once that you could tell the year that a person’s mind began to decline by looking at the copyright dates on his library shelves. And I think there’s some truth to that.
800-CEO-READ had a link today to a great article over at the New York Times about the reading habits of some of some of our most innovative leaders (Steve Jobs, Phil Knight, and others). Fascinating to see a little bit behind the scenes into the libraries of such interesting figures. You can check out the article right here: C.E.O. Libraries Reveal Keys to Success
