Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
Hi all. I am planning to start reading books on investing. (I have a list of 10 books already). I was wondering for those who are well read, do investment books lead to ACTIONABLE things you do to your portfolio or is it just a mindset change?

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
