The subtle art of not giving a f**k 👍 My colleague recommended this book to me after I went through a series of “incidents” at work with some co-workers and incapable managers. I loved this book.

Habits, if youre looking for a self-improvement but super interesting read

What are you looking for? Nonfiction or fiction? We need a bit more of a brief!

Not comp related but a question on references: I’ve only had 2 direct managers, current one is nice but I can’t let him know I’m interviewing. Previous one was a bully and I made clear that I cut contact with him when I left (he later had to contact me for non-essential work related stuff but I declined to talk). I have other references I could use, but want to prep for situation when employers ask “why can’t we talk to your previous manager.” Thanks!

If all the top consulting firms made anonymous decks or gave anonymous pitches to a client, eg no branding and the client did not know which firm made which deck, do you actually think that the client would prefer MBB?  Is MBB actually coming up with better/more innovative solutions? I feel like I see many repeat or slightly altered solutions on almost all of my cases, are these really things that people at Deloitte/Accenture etc aren’t coming up with?

Even if we needed to pay the IRA for the rental?) Thoughts? Warnings?
