Take some of your free summer hours to dive into one of these books written by well-known business and IT leaders, including Bill Gates, Michael Dell, and Andrew Grove, and learn their perspectives on management and success.

Reading is a favorite pastime among many of history's greatest innovators and leaders, Elon Musk and Steve Jobs among them.

Unfortunately, many of us spend more time browsing the internet than we do with a book in our hands. It's more common to find someone skimming articles or scrolling though Twitter than diving into a book.

Despite the rise in global literacy rates, people are reading less deeply. Most American adults are reading less in general, and less than half are reading literature, as reported by the Harvard Business Review. This is especially true among leaders.

It's a shame, because reading poses several benefits to leaders. Reading is one of the fastest ways to absorb new information. It can provide insights from across industries that inspire innovation.

For tech professionals, there is no shortage of reading material to learn more about the growth of the technology industry, the visionaries behind it, and the skills they need to drive their careers.

Perhaps you need a good book to improve your programming skills or acquire some new leadership strategies. Maybe you hope to learn more about the lives of technology's greatest influencers and how they built their careers.

Before you're lying by the pool or lounging in a beach chair this summer, why not pick up an interesting read from one of many leaders in business and technology? Here, we spotlight books written by influencers including Bill Gates, Michael Dell, and Tony Hsieh, who share their stories and strategies for achieving success.

Have you read any of the books listed here? Are there any books by tech or business leaders that have proven helpful in your career? We'd like to keep adding to this list, so please share your recommendations in the comments.
