Hi, glad you found it useful! Here are some personal development books I recommend:

  • Crucial Confrontations - This book changed the way I think about and handle confrontation. It's helped me immensely in my career and personal life.
  • Finding Flow - Concise, excellent read. The best book I've found explaining "how to feel consistently happy/satisfied in life."
  • The Power of Vulnerability - Great counterargument to the Tech industry's "gladiator culture." You don't have to be an asshole to be successful in Tech.
  • Self Compassion - Great read for people suffering from Imposter Syndrome.
