Summer Reads

It’s that time of year again and we hope, like us, you will be taking a break. If you’re looking for a good book to settle down with over the break, look no further than these suggestions from the Digital Leaders Advisory Board. We hope whatever your summer plans, you take a break, and enjoy some time with family and friends, with a good book to hand.
