Any book recommendations?
Looking for book recommendations. Fiction and non fiction welcomed. Would love to hear your favorites or what you're reading right now!
Would you say summaries are as effective for self help books like "the subtle art of giving a fk" and other similar books? I feel the books themselves ramble on too much on a side story only to tell a point that could be summed up in a couple sentences. Or am I just not getting good book recommendations for growth/development on mental well being and productivity

My wife is pregnant. Do the general courtesies of telling your manager/work beginning of 3rd trimester still apply during covid/work from home? Her industry has been hit hard and her job has been doing furloughs and layoffs. We can get pretty far without telling due to WFH but don’t want to put her boss in a bad position either.

My work is highly focused on inclusion and today, while driving through the park, I felt bad for laughing at a group of larpers. They have nerf combat gear, too. I tried hard not to be insensitive to them being their true selves but i laughed … hard! And now I feel bad for laughing at them.
I am not from the US and taxes overwhelm me; the first few years I did them with TurboTax and it was fine but then I entered a domestic partnership and had a baby. I also bought a house (that I don’t live in), so I went to H&R Block to give it a try assuming they could advise me on optimizing my return, it seemed that they are completely transactional as the person is just typing numbers in a form. Any recommendations on how to navigate personal taxes with an actual advisor?
L1A visa question: I'm working at MBB and moved to Canada due to Visa issues. Now, my Immigration team is asking me to work on ONLY Canadian client projects so that I'm eligible for L1.

Are the Deloitte layoffs happening in federal or commercial? I'm in fed and haven't heard a thing about layoffs
So leveraging existing assets and lessons learn, is this a good practice? My interviewer said their company prefers to do things from the scratch. I’m very confused 😐
Every interview round of mine has been three week apart from each other. Is this how slowly I should expect google to work if I get an offer and join? I’m so tired of the interview process. Takes forever to figure out if I’m moving to the next round and then forever to schedule the next round. It’s such a frustrating candidate experience.
