Reading Books

It has been said that reading a bad book is worthwhile because there is always one good piece of information in it.

I suspect this has been put around by bad authors, as why do people want to read a bad book for only one piece of information when they can read a good book which will change their practice for the better with lots of pieces of good information? I don’t have time to waste reading bad books.

I also see people saying “I’ve read X book until it’s falling apart and I’d like to know what to read next”. Most books will have a bibliography in the back and you can start with this.
Also try lists or recommendations from people you respect. I’ve done this and sometimes the lists have turned out to be filled with bad books, but I’ve found some really good lists from people.
