31 July 2018

In our last Parameters survey we asked paraplanners to name the business and non-business book they would recommend to their peers to read over the summer.

There were some interesting responses – it seems that paraplanners are voracious readers with eclectic tastes.

We also asked you how you tend to read books – electronic, physical or audio versions? Here’s what you said:

Physical books 64%
Electronic versions 18%
Mixture of the above 18%
Listen to audio books 0%

Here are your recommendations.
