J.P. Morgan Reading List Summer 2017

JP Morgan 2017


The 2017 J.P. Morgan Reading List features titles that tackle timely topics, from social and environmental issues to resiliency and popular culture. The list was culled from over 450 recommendations from the bank’s employees across the globe.

“This year’s selections are diverse and thought-provoking, reflecting the passions and causes our global clients care about most,” says Darin Oduyoye, Chief Communications Officer for J.P. Morgan Asset & Wealth Management.

One of the first of its kind, the J.P. Morgan Reading list was started in 1999 as a way to stay in touch with clients during the summer months. The intention was to focus on books, all nonfiction, that featured themes and experiences reflecting the lives and interests of Private Bank clients—business, innovation, philanthropy, art. Notable titles from previous lists include Thomas Friedman’s The World is Flat (2005), David Kirkpatrick’s The Facebook Effect (2010), and Arianna Huffington’s The Sleep Revolution (2016).

We at Books & Books are grateful to J.P. Morgan's local office for "shopping small" (IE, with us) and we are pleased to share thier recommendations with you.
