So we got a hold of the email Jamie Dimon sent the interns we just told you about.
Whichever intern was ballsy enough to send an email to Jamie asking for his books recommendations – nice.
Here it is:

I thoroughly enjoyed seeing all of you this morning at the town hall.
A number of you have already emailed me for my list of favourite books, which includes a variety of business and history books. It’s attached for everyone to see.
Also, for those interested, I’ve attached a copy of my Syracuse commencement speech (you can also see the video on the school’s website) and the advice that Bill Gates gave at a High School graduation address. And of course, I’d love for you all to read my Chairman’s letter, which is included below as a link.
I hope you all have a great summer,
