The best book for your career, in my opinion, is How to Win Friends and Influence People.

It sounds cheesy and even manipulative, but it's really about learning to care about other people and resolve conflicts.

Yess definitely check out How to Win Friends and Influence People! When the book first started gaining popularity, I ignored it because I didn't think of myself as someone who needed to "win friends" or influence others. I read it anyway and to my own surprise, it ended up being one of my most recommended books as it has been very helpful and valuable in improving my people skills.

In addition to that, I enjoyed The Power of Habit (Charles Duhigg). If you're looking for a lighter read, I can also recommend Hit Refresh (Satya Nadella) or anything from the Freakonomics series.
