A common thread that unites successful people is that they read a lot of actual books.

Bill Gates reads 50 books a year,¬†Elon Musk said he learned to build rockets because “I read books” and Warren Buffet devotes 80{87a57dffff3f15402708bd6d4fa6cb73125da737a01ee576ca36cfcfa083af5b} of his day to reading.

Here’s why reading real books is an essential part of a rich, fulfilled life:

  • The more you read, the more you know
  • It’s a brain workout
  • Flipping physical pages helps context and understanding
  • It’s a stress-buster
  • It can improve your memory
  • It expands vocabulary and improves analytical skills

It’s no use just reading any old book though. Books about other people¬†score top in terms of self-improvement.

Biographies open the door to successful lives and let us learn how greatness thinks, not just view its results.
