But I would not recommend it if you are not a reader that re-reads books. I’m one of them and it can be embarrassing to admit it despite being a bookworm. Learning how to cook, or make crafts or even how to start a hobbie is one thing. But to use a self help book to llearn the psychology of the mind of people or the workings of a computer, that’s just impossible.
