We all want to learn fast.
Maximise our experience in the least possible time.
And be able to tackle the right problems.

Reading helps us do that.

Not fiction. Instead psychology, human behaviour, history, biographies, self help.

Not only will they help us gain more wisdom, they will also take us out of trenches of bad mood.
Not only will they help us use our time better, they will also allow us to make our future better.
Not only are they a lifetime of wisdom compressed into several hours, they will also save us from the same mistakes.

The second best way to learn from mistakes is to commit them.
The best way is to read.
