Must Read Books for Creativity

Reading is a means of thinking with another person's mind: It forces you to stretch your own."  - Charles Scribner, Jr.

If you want to become an idea-man then reading must become a daily habit. You must immerse yourself into the mind's of the world's leading thinkers, read about totally diverse fields, and learn to associate your problems and challenges with the totally random objects that you read about. Learn to make the connections. Join a book club or start an executive reading program of your own.
