Self-help for dummies

I'm fine with the concept of self-help, but I think self-help books are ridiculously boring and, for the most part, for chumps. People who need life lessons spoon-fed to them. Maybe they're the same ones who think Avatar had a good screenplay.

I learn something important from almost every book I read, whether it's non-fiction or a work of literature. It's all in there. It's everywhere. Wisdom is all around. It just doesn't always have a flashing neon sign to call it out.

And I think it has a lot more impact when you're actually engaged in the process of discovering it, instead of having it plopped into your lap.

Just had to get that off my chest.
