Choosing what to read

Choosing what to read

  • If a book has been around for a long time and people still talk about it, it’s probably good.
  • Read the first chapter without the obligation to continue. If you’re not having fun, it’s time to move on.
  • Choose your books based on what you need to learn right now, so you can use the information you consume.
