the "value" of self-help

Here is a brilliant observation from John Maeda:

I do admit that I read a whole bunch of these sort of self-help books. Is there anything inside them worth reading? Certainly. Although the number of nuggets you can get from these books is definitely not proportional to how many pages there are.

Self-help is a classic taboo topic. Admitting to reading self-help can potentially call into question

I admit to data mining self-help literature. I wish there was a more efficient way to transfer the knowledge. But repetition of theme is at least a partial substitute for the more difficult act of doing, which is where the benefit is realized.
