Hi all 

I am in a standalone HR role for a challenging industry and sometimes require a bit of mentor/pick me up when times are a bit overwhelming. 

As well as trying to reduce the time I spend watching repeats of my favorite shows on Netflix I figured I could do something a bit more productive by reading and broadening my knowledge. Bonus points if they are "a day in the life of" or humorous! 

I am particularly interested in the following subjects and would welcome any book recommendations: 

- How to say no

- How to deal with difficult managers (VERY traditional/bullies) 

- Psychology within HR 

- HR case studies 

Thank you
