"The man who does not read good books have no advantage over the man who can not read them" - Mark Twain.
Anyone that says we have only one life to live, have not found the value of reading a book. I know that many people feel that reading nonfiction books is work. I can not agree with that. For me reading nonfiction books is very relaxing. Plus, with so many things in this world to learn about, with so many different perspectives to see, I find it more fascinating to read nonfiction books. I almost find it a waste of my time to read somebody´s daydreams. When you read a book you are able to see in another person´s mind through a journey or achievement. You can see how different solutions are rationalized. It is as close you can get to the actual experience. Great books do that. They open our minds to wondering and thinking about why we are here, to trying to always do the best we can and to realize that anything less on our part is throwing away a large portion of energy that we have been given in this world.
Remember that almost all the decisions you have to make in your life, have already been made over and over again and most of them have been described in writing in some book. By having the patience to find the right books and read them, you will have an advantage compared to most people. I recommend you to read the books that improve you in some skill in life. Read history books since they are about people in different times and what challenges they experienced and how they overcame them. Read some books on topics such as human mind, stress, nutrition, exercise, financing, investing money and others that explain what people think and what they have done. Decide to read about a wide spectrum of topics if you want your skills in your life to improve infinitely. A good book on your shelf is a friend that turns it back on you but remains a friend!
