Why you should READ LESS*

760K views113

    *as in putting less pressure on yourself with how MANY books you read, but rather focusing on the QUALITY of what you read. Basically, quality over quantity (as is the case with many things in life). Enjoy!

    Some might read the title of the video and think "oh, cool, I don't have to read, I wasn't going to anyway". If that's the case, I suggest you watch the entire video first. Reading is very important, it has many benefits for your brain, and unfortunately, school prepares us from a young age to see reading as a chore or as something unpleasant. Then there's the other type of people who only read Personal Development and Self Help books, and that's mainly who I'm targeting with this video. The Self Help industry is making billions of dollars every year, often selling sub-par written content that gives the illusion of personal growth. There's so much more value in a novel, or a history book, than you will ever find in the average Self-improvement book. So although I'm talking about why you should read less, the moral of the story - spoiler alert - is why you should read more, or why you should be more selective with the type of books you're reading. Looking forward to the conversation in the comment section.

      Hey, your fourth link’s article has a problem, I think the website took down the article for it.

    5. No-Named-Noob

      What I expected: Why you should read less What I actually learned: Why you should read more

    6. Shalow Stuff

      "How to think like a roman Emperor" by Donald Robertson is my favorite at the moment. It combines psychology and philosophy, giving examples by reinterpreting the life of Marcus Aurelius.

    7. vipin srivastava

      I have read lots of books ,mostly friction my favorite are the famous five books . I have also read books like the alchemist and it was a epic book .

    8. Yash

      Anyone got any book suggestions I'm a beginner and this video has convinced me to start reading

      1. LO KI

        Rich dad poor dad great book

    9. Malcolm Odell

      Miser rhymes with Pfizer

    10. Touya Todoroki

      A series I read recently is called shadow children it’s about a society where there is a shortage in food so the government made a law where you’re not allowed to have more than 2 children and if you have a 3rd child that child will be killed

    11. Clara James

      If you dont like reading i reccomend graphic novels, its a good start but an important thing to know is that eventually you should read no picture books. but graphic novels are a good start

    12. Leopard Gecko people

      My fav book was, chronicles of Narnia: The Dawn Treader

    13. ali255

      LOL THE FIRST AD IS ABOUT READING 30 BOOKS EVERY MONTH

    14. Kabooomof

      My mother gave me a book for Christmas... i haven't finished it yet... i feel so guilty...

    15. Shoyo Nagito

      I love the death note series I’m on the last book.

    16. Alex Bou hadir

      Book series recommendations: Harry Potter A Series of Unfortunate Events Percy Jackson

    17. Joakim J. Anfinnes

      my favourite book is a book called «Medicinal Plants of Norway» - I think the title speaks for itself. For all the people who are not norwegian i’d recommend «The 48 Laws of Power» written by John Greene.

    18. That Person

      I was already ahead of the trend cuz in elementary I was the gifted kid who read 15 chapter books a month. Long story short mental health went 📉📉📉 so now I need a month to read a short book

    19. 모아clowns

      When I was younger I read so many books. But I didn’t read them in hopes of making me smarter. I read them because, quite frankly I had no friends to hangout with and I had nowhere to go. I read almost every book that interested me and it ended up helping me tremendously in school. It helped me cause I either read the book so it was easier to summarize or it helped me with my writing. But once I realized how much it helped I started to read more, “better” or “smarter” books but it just made me kind of hate reading. I still don’t read as much as I did before (I used to read so much I read while eating and it was hard not to. Now I use my phone 😔) anyways. Moral of the story, don’t force yourself to read. Just read books that you would want to read. Reading is for enjoyment that just comes with a couple of benefits just like a lot of hobbies.

    28. Rizza Ramirez

      True. Ive seen people brag about how many books they have read for weeks or months. I tried it too but didnt go well. Im not a fast reader type of person. they are great i envy them but Im much comfortable reading slowly. then write my thoughts after every chapter. if fast i prefer listening to audiobook 😃

    29. Anti

      Some great books I recommend are Alex Rider, Percy Jackson, Artemis Fowl, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, The witch, the wizard and the wardrobe and a really cool book, the dangerous book for boys which has history, skills, how to make stuff, information about animals, etc.

    30. Bread Crum

      Last kids on earth is a cool Series that’s my opinion

    31. Gabriel Gomes Correa

      Me: That's the first time I see Paulo Coelho as an example in a English video (I'm Brazilian by the way).

    32. Jalen Curtis

      Me: *sweats nervously at my new year resolution of reading one book a month*

    33. Zainty

      to the people reading books, i reccoment the book “Speak” by Laurie Anderson. its a pretty good book. it covers up a bunch of things that people or even you have been through. (dark things) my english teacher and my teacher has been reading this book together as a class, and so far, its pretty good.👍🏼

    34. Isaac Anaya

      Slaughter house 5

    35. Alveexe has stopped working

      I would recomend scythe from neal shusterman. This is a book mainly for teenagers and is for those who likes sci-fi.

    36. Zachary Jankovski

      I’m a huge fan of Sherlock Holmes

    37. presley norris

      i recommend the haters by jesse andrews- it’s a quick and fun realistic fiction about a group of teenagers who form a band and run away to go on tour it’s a fanstastic book

    38. EKV Gaming

      . Guys read less

    39. Omega Leon

      Me reading all the fnaf novels

    40. Ofentse Mwase Films

      1. MikeAnimation !

        lol

    41. Luke C

      does making a book and reading it over count?

    42. josh183rd

      I got into reading when around 5th to 6th grade but got really into reading in 7th. I enjoyed the entertainment side of reading, stuff like action, sc-fi or fantasy. I'm still reading a bunch till this very day.

    43. Crescentpaws5000

      Me who just likes reading and for entertainment in school and books because cool

    44. Christoph Gaming and more

      Reading books is so boring

    45. Do Lizards Dream

      If I must choose a book to be me favorite, I’d have to say The Shining by Stephen King. All I’ll say is there’s a reason he is called the king instead of just King.

    46. Carl Williams

      get your memes up dude

    47. Further Lisk

      Go the CGP grey route and have "year of reading"

    48. Rayhan Parkar

      I mean ik no one is gonna see this i just wanna say I really love fantasy, sci fi and In general books that can take you into another world. A series I really like is wings of fire by tui. T Sutherland . School books that try to stuff info that doesn't help in the long run are just for going over for tests and either giving them to someone or like me and the boys do every end of the year, use them as food for fire in my friends backyard and burn the bugs( especially spiders ) or make them fight over the flames on a stick.(yes, we are imbeciles when it comes to fun.) What im trying to get at is ya dont need to keep every book you have until school ends. Either give it away or let it burn.

    49. Samantha Kauffman

      Anything by Robert Green my personal Favorite is "The Art Of Seduction." This kinda sucks because I love my audible account where I just lay down turn the lights off and "read" a book. Maybe it's just me but I remember passages from books from audible more then if I ACTUALLY read the book. Is anyone else like that?

    50. elismart13

      its not useless i just dont have the time for it (maybe you did but i dont and haven't ever since Scholl got a lot harder and studying gives me plenty of reading anyway)

    51. Starblade 658

      This video wouldn’t have been made if all people read was manga (btw how do you read part 7 of JoJo paid or free doesn’t matter)

    52. Ilia Manjavidze

      Self help book. Nope ... I love . In Spanish Los Pilares de la Tierra (though I know its original language is English i just read it in my mother tongue, talking about the easy way out) . In English I believe Cold fire a good fiction book that give me something I haven't seen in years, an unexpected history, one that I could not figure it out until I read it till the end. It depends of what you like, there is nothing like having a book, the feel the smell everything, I do love to read, though to be honest my preferences are mostly juvenile
