Read Liar’s Poker. Not about the crisis itself, but sets up the characters and instruments that caused it.

House of Cards is pretty good too. About the fall of Bear.

Crashed, by Adam Tooze, is great.

Would you say summaries are as effective for self help books like "the subtle art of giving a fk" and other similar books?

I work at a boutique that is not very well known, I went on sick leave for personal reasons, which they have been very supportive of.

Would it look bad if I agreed to take the offer to boomerang? I'm very confused, everyone I know is saying I shouldn't do it.
