If you ask the average modern person about what he would prefer to do in his free time: read a book or watch his favorite TV series, then with a probability of 70%, he would choose the second option. (The role of the book in human life)
In five percent of cases, the choice would probably have fallen on reading, and the remaining 25% – the likelihood that none of the options will be acceptable since the subject is an ardent fan of computer games.
Indeed, not everyone reads on the personal initiative now. And this is a serious problem because a book plays a very important role in a person’s life.
Books are a tool for self-development
It’s no secret that smart people read a lot.
Moreover, they do not read magazines about glamorous life or comments on social networks, but real books. In the books, you can find any information you are interested in. People who read often know a lot more than anyone else.
Their horizons are much broader, they are able to quickly assess new circumstances and make decisions, thanks to information gleaned from books, which is a very valuable quality in the modern world.
Any person who wants to become a specialist in his field cannot do this without reading the literature corresponding to his profession. Books develop imagination, teach to dream and achieve the fulfillment of their dreams. They contain the wisdom of generations, captured on paper, and it is foolish not to use this for modern people.
The book is the key to knowing yourself and the world
Human psychology is described not only in specialized literature, but also in fiction books. For many hundreds of years, people have observed the behavior of the human race and recorded their observations on paper.
On the basis of these records, many fascinating works have appeared, designed to reveal the secrets of human psychology. The reader can find answers to any questions in them, better understand the people around him and himself.
After all, sometimes by looking from the outside and comparing yourself to a character from a book, you can easily solve a problem that seemed insoluble. Therefore, the role of the book in human life cannot be overestimated.
They reveal many secrets of the surrounding world. The laws of historical events, the laws of the Universe, the secrets of our planet and much more can be learned from books.
If earlier it was necessary to go to the library for the necessary information, today you can get it without leaving your home. A person today has unlimited access to books, but, sadly, he has no time to read.
Books that change lives
It happens that a book read on time changes a person’s whole life for the better.
It would seem that even yesterday he worked at an unloved job, quarreled with his wife and got up every morning in a state of depression and dissatisfaction with life.
But suddenly he comes across a book that changes his entire worldview, and the life of an unhappy person begins to improve before our eyes.
This really happened more than once. But, if at that moment he had not taken a book in his hands, but had gone to look at photos of acquaintances on the social network, then no changes in his life would have happened.
Modern people have enormous wealth – unlimited access to the world’s information, but they are killing their time playing mindless computer games or watching fictional lives in films and TV shows.
It’s not too late to change your mind and start reading books, perhaps this will help change your life for the better and make it more meaningful.
