The Female Persuasion, by Meg Wolitzer

Ana-Lia, Customer Success Manager

This book satirises the complicated landscape of contemporary feminism. I loved that the characters brought their political motivations and idealism to the book so nicely and vivaciously. It’s an emotional book for me, not an easy-to-read book, but once you get there, it’s deep and meaningful. The meaning behind it is that we all find our place in the world and should look after it and pursue our ideals and what we believe in.

Dune Messiah, by Frank Herbert

Bruno, Data Scientist

This second novel of the Dune saga follows the journey of Paul Atreides, a visionary leader grappling with the complexities of power, responsibility, and the consequences of his decisions. Paul's strategic acumen, resilience in adversity, and relentless pursuit of a better future set an excellent example for anyone aspiring to become a great leader.
