Last summer, Jamie Dimon sent some of JPMorgan’s interns an email with his recommended reading list.
A few of them had emailed asking him which books to read, and he replied with a list of 25.
Of course, he didn’t intend for them to read them all in one summer.
But who finishes their entire summer reading list anyway!
(Whichever interns were ballsy enough to send an email to Jamie asking for his books recommendations by the way – nice.)
Here’s the email, and the book recommendations he attached. Add them to your list:

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,
