How to read self-help
But I think we read a lot of self-help because we need to. As I’ve already mentioned, we need lots of examples to drive this wisdom home. We should be more forgiving of self-help (the genre) and more forgiving of ourselves. Putting wisdom into practice takes requires reading, reflection, and practice—but it’s worth it.

This is an important thing to keep in mind when depending on open-source libraries. Be circumspect about what you depend on, because only some modules actually have a reasonable and sustainable maintenance model.
