Reading is good for you
Reading is good for your mind and your soul. It can benefit your finances and your body if you apply the lessons correctly, as I should. I hope you didn’t stop learning when you left school or college. There is a wealth of knowledge and wisdom out there in books, both paper and e-books. You may think that you benefit most from reading nonfiction. I certainly hope people benefit from reading the nonfiction I have written. However, fiction can also benefit you by making you aware of people, places, situations outside your experience. It can cover social issues in ways nonfiction often cannot.
Politicians do a lot of reading
Unfortunately, they have to do so much official reading they often have little time for fiction or even broader nonfiction. On the other hand, most of them have read a lot before they go into politics. The PM studied classics and has probably done a lot of research for some of the books he has written. Martin Luther, on the other hand, said too many people in his day studied classics, especially Aristotle, rather than the Bible. He pointed out that classical writers viewed the world from a non-Christian and often self-centred perspective.
What reading do I recommend for the PM?
The book I always recommend to everyone is the one I mentioned above, the Bible. It contains a vast wealth of truth and wisdom. In addition, for someone who has limited time for books, I suggest three of my non-fiction works which I have advocated in recent blogs.
What reading to you choose for the PM?
Would you send him one of my books or all of them? Would you rather recommend something else? Perhaps you would prefer to read them yourself before you make your mind up?
