9 Marketing Books to Read Before Q1 Ends

February 17, 2017

By Amanda Zantal-Wiener


Simply put, marketers comprise an impressively busy population. With a perpetually incomplete to do list, an eternal quest for work-life balance, and ongoing efforts to keep up with the latest creative trends, where the heck are we supposed to find time to do something like, say, read a book?

But something that might seem recreational on the surface could actually be vital to your career development. Maybe that’s why, despite the perpetual time crunch, 73% of us have still made time to read an actual book in the past year.

Even better, there’s a veritable plethora of books available on marketing, specifically, and some of them can be quite influential. The question is: When you’re already short on time, how do you pick out the best ones? Well, you’re in luck — here at HubSpot, we’ve got an entire team of marketers to make recommendations.
