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

Thoughts on life insurance? My boyfriends brother started at Northwestern. I wasn’t buying into it at first. They played it up & I fell for it but now I’m contemplating it. I have a whole life & a term life, which totals $1M, costs $230/month. I have a 401k, Roth 401k, my own investments, I receive stock yearly from my company & purchase it quarterly at a discount. I have a finance degree, I’m good with my money, I budget, frugal & very in-tune with my finances. I’m just not sure if I need it.

Scared of burning FAANG bridge with potential move out but also dislike my role because I hate sales and want to do strategy work. Thoughts?
