The Reading List

The way we run abbywinters.com, and our internal culture, has been shaped in part by several books. A sure way to impress us at your interview is to be familiar with the ideas in those books. We don’t necessarily agree with everything all the books say (and at our regular book club meetings, we discuss the pros and cons in a full-throated fashion!), but we love sharing ideas on how to make our company better.
