What I can and can’t claim about my life of reading...
*It hasn’t made me smarter, but it has satisfied my curiosity on various subjects
*I’m not sure how (or if) it has helped my career. I bet I have read more business books than my boss or my boss’s boss (probably combined) and yet they make 2-3x the money I make
*I may have developed more questions than answers from all my reading
*Though my reading did not substitute for my father when he died, it did provide me certain inspirations, models of conduct and literary role models in my formative years
