Greg contends that as an entrepreneur, he constantly reads books. However, he does not follow any particular order. He may not read the book from beginning to end. Instead, Greg picks books, dog ear pages, finds interesting chapters, and scribbles important notes in the margins. In addition, Secker loves reading autobiographies of persons who are not known for their fortune or fame, but their strength of character.
