Publishers and Education

As much as publishers sound like they’re about education and teaching you – they’re about publishing.  Publishers publish.  Educators educate.  Books are produced to sell.  Don’t get me wrong.  I buy a ton of books.  I have a ton of books – it might actually weigh a ton.  But books are so filled with stuff that will sell – not necessarily stuff that teaches.

But on the rare occasion that you find that book that is just filled with gems – ah – then you’ve scored.  Finding a book that teaches is not the norm.

Can you think of a book that also teaches?
