Amar (Head of Growth) is reading a book called “Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything” By Stephen J. Dubner & Steven D. Levitt. Assume nothing, question everything. this is the message at the heart of Freakonomics, Levitt and Bubner’s rule-breaking, iconoclastic book about creak dealers, cheating teachers and bizarre baby names that turned everyone’s view of the world upside-down and became an international multi-million-copy-selling phenomenon.

Lewis (Social Strategist) recommends John Hegarty’s “Hegarty On Creativity: There Are No Rules”. Sir John Hegarty is an advertising executive and a founder of the renowned agency Bartle Bogle Hegarty (BBH). His book focuses on being creative, innovative and communicating ideas effectively and succinctly. It reminds us that to simplify isn’t to dumb down, but to sharpen the point and make it more direct. This is a must-have for all creatives out there! You can find the book on – yup, you guessed it – Amazon.
