How many times have you heard about some person that decided to pursue something simply because she read a book? It happens all time.
Until I was 17, I believed that reading was something you had to do at school, or something that you did for entertainment. I hated reading.
But when I read The 48 Laws Of Power by Robert Greene, I discovered another aspect of reading. There was a lot of talk about how that book teaches you how to get power. At the time, that notion sounded appealing to me so I picked up the book.
This is what I discovered: Reading teaches how to do things. Do you want to become better at relationships? Read a book. Want to get in shape? Read a book.
