All Packaged Information is Garbage

or at least most people in this thread think so. But then in other forum threads I have been referred to as a genius. I am glad someone believes in me more than I do ;)

If you find a good book (like A Thousand Years of Nonlinear History) sometimes you are not paying for what is in the book, but also what biases or other information are not included in the book (as any author, business model, or information format carries biases).

I think one of the biggest reasons many people fail is they try to satisfy everyone. Average people suck. Experience is the best trainer, but people discounting the value of other things typically tend to start from the framework of thinking their time is worthless. And so it is. Everything is overpriced. Until you die.

"I think one of the biggest reasons many people fail is that they try to satisfy everyone."

thats very much true...

Another thing to note is, all these many of these people expect all things to free and thrive on warez. Hence when it comes to paying for something which is good and has a good "trust" among the industry , they whinge and moan about it simply because they have to buy it as it is not available for free anywhere.

Thanks for recommending A Thousand Years of Nonlinear History. I just finished it, and I really enjoyed it. I love books that totally change the way I look at things.

Well, if all people learned on their own, would you sell a single copy of your book?
