The value of a book

When we purchase a book, we pay a price for the book, this is the selling value of the book. The knowledge that is contained in the book is what I call its intrinsic value. A book can be of zero intrinsic value if it does not contain any useful information at all. On the other hand, for very good books, the intrinsic value of these books can be many times more than the selling value of the book.
Ultimately, it depends on whether the reader is able to translate the information gleaned from the book into knowledge and into application and action. Often, many people can read many books but if they do not apply the knowledge gained from these books, they are just wasting their time reading the books.
