As it turns out, a lot of business books are fundamentally about becoming the right person to do the job, which is why you get a lot of crossover between self-help and business books. The ones that are not about changing yourself and your habits are often about changing your business’ habits, which is actually the same thing but on a macro scale instead of for a single individual. Ultimately whether it’s a “good” thing is highly subjective, but for me, it’s inevitable especially from a business perspective. Once you learn how to do, say, SEO, you’re not going to need books anymore (so publishers will sell less). But you will always need books to improve yourself, especially if you’re a person who wants to be effective.
