About the current condition of the book market on any specific topic

Take any topic you wish and you will face the same problem: too many books, most of them of questionable quality.

Before, when publishing a book was much more difficult, both the authors and the publishers were very selective with their content. These days the situation changed and almost everybody can write a book by compiling info from other books and changing the form and adding very little to the original content. For this reason the student is inundated with books that lack clarity concision and style. Some authors are very good professionals and experts on the topics discussed in their book but unfortunately they lack the skills required for a clear exposure, they are simply unable to teach others what they know.

The entire situation reminds me what someone told me about Yoga. “Before the information on these topics was scarce, transmitted verbally, it was an esoteric discipline and there were numerous obstacles in front of any serious adept. Today the information is everywhere but the obstacles are the same, the adept is inundated with information and it is as difficult as it was before to get meaningful information”

These days too much information replaces the lack of information and this makes it equally difficult for the student in both situations.

Good luck in your studies Neo!
