Can books fix problems?

What ever you’re going through, there’s bound to be someone else out there who went through it and documented it in some way. Wouldn’t it be a good idea to find that documentation just to see what they did to overcome their problems?

People underestimate the power of books and overestimate the power of their own mind. Nobody was born with all the knowledge in the world. It’s impossible to learn, everything there’s to learn, in one life time but shouldn’t we at least try to learn what ever we can?

I have seen people completely change once they realize that they didn’t have all the knowledge in the world. They became humble, curious and in peace with it. It feels a bit like a much needed slap to the face. It’s a change in mindset.

Self-growth books are, from my experience, the quickest way to achieve this mindset. Why? Reading about mechanic/software, or other subjects, will teach us more on the subject but won’t make us realize how little we know about everything else and it won’t make us more curious to learn about it.
