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:

From: Jamie Dimon 
Sent: Tuesday, June 29, 2010
To: 2010 Summer Markets Interns – All


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,
