πŸ“šπŸŽ™ Book and podcast recommendations?

Hey Elphas!

Over the past year or so (especially in the recent months) I've rediscovered my love for reading. Being in university, it had always felt hard to make time for reading but now I actively try to make time for it each day :)

I'd love to hear what books or even podcasts (finally got into listening to podcasts a month ago) you love & recommend! I like content related to self-help, psychology, personal finance, career (tech, product, design, leadership), and startups/business

I especially love books that are more tactical and provide content/concepts that you can apply in your life (e.g. Atomic Habits by James Clear)

Would love to hear any and all recommendations (even if they don't necessarily fit into the categories I listed above). Thanks in advance!
