In honor of World Book Day, we asked some of our leadership what their favourite book is and why.


Worldwide CEO Carter Murray:

Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. It talks to the strength of the human spirit, gives perspective on what suffering & perseverance is.

Global CCO Jonathan Harries:

Taipan by James Clavell. "It’s a boy’s adventure for grownups who never grew up."

Chief of Staff Elyssa Phillips:

The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne. "It always sparks great debate & discussion."

Global Chief Talent Officer Cindy Augustine: 

A Mercy by Toni Morrison. "The book presents piercing themes of suffering and loss and whether even human mercy and kindness provides an adequate response." 

FCB’s Global Chief Strategy Officer Nigel Jones: 

Goodbye To Berlin by Christopher Isherwood. "Decadence may not always be the best choice but it is always a better read."
