I would instead focus on the root causes of that stress and low self esteem - instead of trying to dive into making themselves a highly polished professional in an unreasonable amount of time, I'd much prefer if someone guided me to materials that would make me a calmer, empathetic and more well rounder person as a whole. That said some recommendations: - Digital Minimalism & Deep Work by Cal Newport - Talking to Strangers - Malcolm Gladwell - Zen & The Art of Motorcycle Maintenance - Robert Pirsig
