Who’s got book recommendations? No lame “business guru” books that repeat the same principle over and over again.

If you’re a woman I recommend Reese Witherspoon’s book club. There’s a new book each month. Most are fiction with a few non fiction/biographies thrown in. Her thing is that all the books have interesting female characters. I’ve only read a couple from her list that I didn’t like and I probably bought like 80% of them over the past 3 years.

Is she the woman from that movie ?

Book recommendations? I come from non-Union/low budget line producing but I’m now working for a “real agency”. I’m looking to learn more about SAG processes, working with vendors, bidding process, etc. I know most of this knowledges will come from actually working on projects but I’m curious if there are any good resources out there.

Would you say summaries are as effective for self help books like "the subtle art of giving a fk" and other similar books?
