Selin Kesebir, Assistant Professor of Organisational Behaviour at the London Business School’s Leadership Institute writes,

Reading is spending your time with the finest minds, alive and dead, at their most thoughtful. It connects you to distant times and places and gives you access to knowledge unattainable through personal encounters. If you read non-fiction, you will get fresh perspectives, information, and insights. You will expand your knowledge base, as well as your ability to think systematically, broadly and creatively. If you read fiction, you will see yourself and others more clearly, develop your self-understanding, emotional capabilities and interpersonal sensitivities. Altogether, reading will save you from self-absorption and provincialism, showing you the world in its breadth and complexity, making you a better thinker and decision-maker.
