Eton has produced some of the most successful young men of our generation. It counts Prince William, David Cameron and Eddie Redmayne among its prestigious alumni.

How do these privileged students become so successful? Retiring headmaster Tony Little has penned a book that asks fundamental questions about education. The book is aptly titled An Intelligent Personís Guide to Education.

If you have a 16-year-old at home then this might just interest you. There are lists for parents and lists for students including the books every bright 16-year-old should read. Along with books on various subjects such as Music and Economics is a list of literature that should be read. So, parents, have you read these books because your 16-year-old should have?

Gulliverís Travels by Jonathan Swift
David Copperfield by Charles Dickens
The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton
Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad
Atonement by Ian McEwan
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
The Bonfire of the Vanities by Tom Wolfe

Start reading for success.
