Reported by: |Updated: May 4, 2019

Bankers are not confining to their subject matter when it comes to reading. Their choice of books is an indication:

Bankers seem to be keeping abreast of happenings not just in the banking realm but gaining insight into matters of religion, philosophy, sports, technology and what not. They have a varied choice as indicated by their selection of books, which they have read or are currently reading or are in the process of acquiring.
For instance, ‘Three Thousand Stitches’ by Sudha Murthy is a popular pick for many bankers. Similarly, Dr Raghuram Rajan’s ‘I Do What I Do’ too has a lot of pickers. There are also avid readers who have a variety of choices ranging from ‘The Undoing Project’ by Michael Lewis, ‘Thinking Fast and Slow’ by Daniel Kanheman, ‘Originals’ by Adam Grant, ‘Process Innovation’ by Thomas Davenport, and ‘Man’s Search for Meaning’ by Viktor Frank. Similarly, Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harrari and “The New Silk Roads’ by Peter Frankpan has attracted several bankers.
And several of them are followers of sports, especially cricket, with ‘VVS Laxman 281 and Beyond’ being popular title. ‘Gandhi: The Years that Changed the World’ by Ramachandra Guha is again one of the titles that got some of the bankers hooked while there are also takers for ‘Skin in the Game’ by Nicolas Taleb, ‘The Master Algorithm’ by Pedro Domingos, ‘The Fintech Book’ by Wiley.
