Katia’s recommendation comes from American business investor and philanthropist, Warren Buffett. The Snowball is an autobiography of Warren’s life.

“15 lessons in leadership”. Paul has been reading up on what the All Blacks can teach us about the business of life. “This book is quite topical seeing that they won the World Cup last year”. Perhaps we can all learn a lesson from this book!
