He answered: “I really enjoyed Onward by Howard Schultz. It really shows what a tremendous impact a proper vision and culture can have on the success of a company over decades. Another great book is Delivering Happiness by Tony Hsieh as it teaches you so much about focusing and appreciating your customers.”

In his answer he mentioned the autobiography of Warren Buffett, which he described as good book for general business learnings. As his second favourite business book he listed The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey, which is a great book on self leadership.
