Harry Truman once said, “Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers.”
There’s no better time to relax with a good book than in the summer-- or a better time to tackle a few books that could make you a better recruiter.

In that spirit, we've compiled a quick list of what the Doximity Client Success team has on the docket for good reads- things we believe are making us better at our day to day.
Whatever your summer has in store and whatever your preference might be - we hope you enjoy some of our latest, favorite reads, whether you’re on the beach, the porch, or you just have a quiet minute at home.
